Pontiac G6 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
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
Thank you in advance. The wife's car, could be GTX or GPX I'm not sure. Shouldn't matter. Bye for now. Great site.
The electronics went haywire. But car ignition wouldnt start. Then after charging the car for about an hour. It turned on. So last night. I go to turn it on. Same problem. Changed battery. All electronics come on, but now it making a clicking sound when i turn the key in the ignition. And doesnt start up at all. Have power in dashboard. But will not start. Please help!!
I have replaced the plugs and wires but the engine still has a slight miss. nothing show when it is scanned and it runs great. what else could cause the engine to shutter when I am sitting at idle?
the car really makes a rattling noise when i pull into a parking lot. it almost sounds like something underneath is going to fall off but only in the front of the vehicle
It ran fine when I got home parked it but the next time I tried to start it, it just cranks. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Remote start quit about 6 months ago but has not had any problems since then. It won't even act like it is going to start, tried starting fluid and still nothing.
Driver door handle snapped. I would like a replacement procedure and are there other GM models that I might pull the part from?
I am getting poor fuel mileage and after filling the tank with gas, I get a crank no start condition. I let it sit for a few minutes and it will start.
Car only starts for ten to fifteen seconds. Think oil sending unit is cutting car off. Should oil come out of filter hole while cranking engine?
18153511221, issue to complex to type out. Please reply with area coffee, so i know to pick up, my name is Tim. Thank you very much if ya have 5 minutes.
HadHad hole in pan on 3.6L engine, replaced, now no oil flow, can i prime this pump? Engine will only run a few seconds before sending unit shuts it down?
cleaned ocv solenoid valves, next step is camshaft position sensor, and thinking oil pressure switch. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Replaced oil pan, huge pain, and codes popped right after. Car runs smooth for anywhere from 5 to 10 seconds at idle, then comes to an abrupt halt. Thanks in advance for any advice.
Oil pump is internal on crank, but I did not see anything leading into pan from engine compartment, is that normal on this engine? Have other issues and questions, but this will give me a good start, and help me to direct my next line of questioning. Thanks in advance.
