My whole wheel and car will shake when braking I am also the below comment about the steering shaft so this may have some cause behind it.

We have had to replace my steering shaft 3 times total and really it needs to be done again but the Pontiac dealers do not have the parts in yet. However I have gone thru about 6 tires in a year two in three days and I was just wondering if I got an alignment would it even fix the problem or does the shaft have to be fixed as well?

The buttons for 1-6 still change but the volume won't go up or down.

The fuel gauge is stuck on empty but the digital readout still works for the miles you can get out of a tank. How do I check to make sure if it's the gauge or the sending unit?

I just got a recall for the harness on teh bcm connector, I have had some issues and hopefully the recall will fix it.. check with GM to see if yours is in the recall.. worth a shot

need ride hight spects

I did replace the gas cap before the check engine light came on not sure if gas cap could be faulty after a year which would cause 3 codes to come up. Anyone know how to check or have a diagram of where these vapor lines are? Gas tank reads E.

the car jerks when i start up a hill or when I press the gas to take off from a stop. thank you

Middle light within assembly does not work because when buld was replaced before the protective back cover was not put on. Pigtail that contains a black and yellow with is melted and the black wire is completely broken. Need assistance finding a replacement. When searching online they show Head lamp assemblies but I can't tell if the wiring/pigtails are included.

code p4020, dealership says its one of the catalytic converters, how do I know which one it is. And what is the cost for repair? It just crossed 100,000 K miles, is it worth repairing?

My car is turning over but not starting. Radio, doors, remote entry...all works fine. Charged the battery and that doesn't appear to be the problem. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? I am unable to take it back to the dealer, I do not live in the US.




So my '06 G6 with 3.5 started ticking loudly and gotten to the point where it will run fine for a while (10-15 miles) but then will lose power and come to a crawl as if it is the cat converter. For this to happen all at once (the ticking/stall) it doesn't seem that both problems started simultaneously as it seems but the shop thinks it is bad lifter or catalytic converter. I've found multiple 3.5 owners with the same problem and any help would be great. I've included a link to a G6 that sounds exactly as mine does

They will with car running!

It starts. you have to drive slow and it makes a loud noise.

I have a fuel system problem and it has been determined that the Throttle body assembly needs to be replaced. My car won't start. It attempts to turn over but quits before starting.

The check engine light is on and we have replaced the spark plugs. Sometimes the check engine light will flash. Could it be the o2 sensors? Had it checked at Autozone but they never gave me a copy of the codes.

Power steering recall, will company pay for repairs and a rental?

I have a a G6 GT 2005, one side works the other went out one at a time.

My car had reduces power, then the next morning it started then died. It will turn over and occasional try to start. It has a new battery, clean connections, no vacuum leaks detected, no codes showing, fuel pressure reads fine. Any advice would be great!


How do I fix this myself ?

The problem is a loud knocking while turning slowly. I have read over many of the posts and have found one person that was able to have the problem resolved.
I would like to know where that person brought his car to be repaired and if the problem has recurred.

Is it the solenoid or linkage?

Bought two after market gas cap and one from dealer ship still no results check engine light still on

when stopped at red light car takes long to pic up speed,

Car has only 61000 miles and Transmission apparently has gone bad. No GM warrent on parts or repair. Has anyone else had this similar problem with a GM Car? And, if I had problems with an original equipment transmission why would I want to buy a factory new replacement. Do you feel rebuilt is as good? Thank You!
