Pontiac G6 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Don't know much at all about cars, hubby doesn't either, but car is using way to much gas, his full size Ford F150 gets better gas mileage than my 4 cylinder! I don't know anyone that can look at it for me and I don't have the money to take it to a shop right now but its driving me crazy not knowing what it is and if it could be something simple we could do that we just don't know.
When I stop at red light after a few seconds traction light comes on, the car starts to feel like its going to die and traction light comes on then when I take off the car feels like it does some kind of hard shift then its fine again until next stop sign or red light, and check engine light stays on all the time
Most a dealer repair'
Is it important to fix right away
Fuses and bulbs are good.
The oil light keep flashing on and off.
power steering is very hard
The check engine light on my 2009 G6 has been coming on intermittently. I thought it was a gas cap issue as it had come on months ago, then shut off on it's own, but now it has come on again, but does go back off intermittently. We did recently have a cold snap here (temps. of -16 with -40 windchills), though it has thawed out now, and when I took it to a mechanic, he said that may have caused the light to come on, reset the light, but pulled the code which is p0010, however the light has been coming back on has usually been going back off. Any advice?
how much is this repair going to cost. I am assuming that it is either the MAF sensor or faulty wiring into the AIT harness. The check engine light is on and it is also causing the traction control light to come on intermittently.
What should I look at next?
I have already changed the speed sensor that is located behind and below the alternator. Transmission will not shift out of low gear. Please help!!!
I have changed Thermostat & heater worked great 3 days. Then car overheated. I replaced thermostat again. code went out then had to replace (MAF) sensor. Then all codes & Ser. Eng. Light all cleared out. Heater will not blow hot or warm air. All is cold. I have bleed air from the one Purge valve that I found for 4 to 5 days now over & over. I have purchased a kit to flush out the whole coolant system But not sure of proper route with this car. Kit states to cut Inlet heater hose & place (T) valve in it. I cant find enough room to do this. Then it suggested to take the top hose off radiator. It looks as if I flush or put water into radiator. it also suggest to run car at idle while flushing till all is clear water. How or is the coolant going to circulate if I got hose off?
Random pattern/center of where car was parked; what is this fluid/what is best course of action? Thanks!
my dealership who i got my car from just 6 months ago is saying the shifter cable needs replaced and shifter assembly. apparently its not covered under my warranty and they want to charge me $567.56. i dont want to be taken advantage of. i dont know much about cars.
engine Reduce power message. I was traveling about 70 mph and slowed down for traffic, as i went to speed up these lights and message appeared and my car slowed down to about 4o mph on the interstate. Pulled over and shut off the car and waited about 2 minutes and started off again with no lights or messages. 10 minutets later it happened again. What is going on? this happened about every 10 minutes as I drove home.
The car jerks everything I'm on the road for a good while evetually when the car cools off it stops but when it heats back up it jerks when shifting up and down, and also changing gear from park to drive etc. What is this problem and how much the repair cost.
Very strong gas odor.
A little sluggish when I first Start the car
Other then that it is running fine.
Is there a way to force the passenger sensing system to re-check for a passenger, without turning car off then on again?
When I use the remote starter and then get in the car with a passenger, the passenger airbag stays off. If I use the remote start while passenger and I are sitting in the car, passenger airbag comes on.
Seems like passenger sensing system automatically checks for passenger only when car starts. If passenger is not there when car starts, the airbag stays off. How do I get it to then turn on passenger airbag?
ran the codes and had a cyl 3 misfire. replaced plugs, wires coils, crank sensor and cleaned injectors. still misfiring so I am at a loss. suggestions?
the smell is there all the time,it hesitates when turnin the ignition often not all the time.
had cat. converter changed now shifting hard could it be sensor or what
Static when trying to listen to AM radio. Dealer said the module might need programming and this is why the total repair cost would be $315. Any ideas?
when I am driving my steering wheel locks up and when I takeoff it stops should I be concerned
was driving home last night and my check battery light came on. nothing was left on and i couldn't see any other problems. today went to start it and it wouldn't start and says steering and traction low. can you tell me what's wrong? is it just a loose connection? do i need a new battery??
My check engine light is on and it was hooked up to a computer code P0013 came up. This morning driving to work only 15 miles not on freeway, the service traction and engine power reduced flashed on my screen. My car went down 40 miles. luckly I was right by work. Can you tell me what this means?
Looks like an almost clear fluid thin like brake fluid all over the inside of my rim along with being all over the inside of my fender well. I checked the brake fluid it shows full to max. Spradley just redid the rack and pinion because the first time they fixed it it failed. Not sure what or where the fluid is coming from any help?
About a week ago, my car completely shut down. It was running perfectly fine. Mt parents took it to pepboys and they couldnt find anything wrong with it. Then they said that oil and fuel had combined so they changed the fuel pump. still nothing. They checked the spark plugs and they were fine. After almost paying a grand, the car can run but it rattles and shakes when i am idle and now my traction control light is on. Did they mess something up?
cant find the resivour
I have a '07 G6 GTP, I have spark, and I have gas...my thought is it should go boom...tried ether and still nothing. It will crank but thats it. I used a compression tester and only have 30 lbs of pressure on each cylinder which i believe is supposed to be like 125 lbs. I am most certain it isn't a bent valve so my only other thought is timing. Can anyone tell me if it is computer controlled or is there a belt or chain and how to fix this? Thanks
