ive had this fixed in 2014 and 2015 looks like ill have to do it again

Ihave replace my oxygen sensors and mask air flow sensor. check engine still on.code p0031

There was a very loud clicking noise right under the passenger air bag. I had to take it to a GM dealer. The cost was $250 and wondered if this pertains to the recall now?

The fan blower will go off. It will come back on next day. Could this be as simple as a fuse?

sometime they work and sometime they don't.

I know how many miles I go to and from work but my odometer is adding at almost double that rate.

It showed symbol two days ago was on expressway doing 45mi per hour today all of a sudden it started to shut down

Over the past several weeks I have noticed that my car vibrates slightly when idle. This is usually when I am at a stop light but sometimes happens when moving. It is more of a flutter but enough to feel it. It seems to lessen if I turn off the fan. I thought it was just the fan (as in air conditioner). Sometimes when I begin to accelerate it feels like the engine is hesitating rather than responding immediately like it normally would. Any ideas what it could be and a ballpark on how much it will cost to repair it? Mileage is 54,000. I keep up with maintenance... Oil changes, etc. not sure of engine size. I just guessed at 1.8L.

The clock keeps resetting itself. Everything else on the stereo works fine and preset channels are still set.

Since my Vibe's water pump was replaced recently, all of my lights will work during daylight, but my low-beam headlights (only) stop working once daylight fails. All other lights work properly (daytime running lights, fog lights, high-beams).

I am concerned with the "clockspring" issue that was talked about on this site. When I called GM and gave them my vin #, they told me that it was not recalled. Is this true?

Thank you,

Veronica

I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe. Last year I began noticing an exhaust fume odor when the car is idling and the heater fan is on. The odor disappears as soon as I start driving, even if I don't open a window. I have had the exhaust system and the catalytic converter replaced, and it is still doing it. The latest thought is that it is a leaking head gasket. Could that be the cause? Not sure it's worth the $1500 for such an old car with 140K miles on it; nor do I want to spend more money on something that won't work. I love this car!

Car got wrecked the air bags deployed and now ignition when u put key in just slides it doesnt act like it turning over or click or anything does it just need new ignition switch where key is?

My mechanic tells me that my canister cover has a leak and is filling up with water. I have ordered parts to repair it but it's been 3 weeks now and I've been told not to drive the car when there is water on the road. It's winter here (and roads are wet also) - what happens if the canister has water in it that freezes? Will my car stop working? Will my fuel tank collapse?

My pontiac vibe is not GT, but I do have an upgraded exhaust, can I put in a cold air intake?

It has a slight miss when it is in drive.I took it in, they changed the plugs, cleaned the fuel injectors and now they say it has low compression and needs a valve job.Could it be anything other than the valves??? They quoted a very high price.

37,000 miles,, drives,steers,brakes,good,,, no other noise or concerns


i changed the front brakes of my pontiac vibe 09 and after i drove for a minute the traction control system light came up and the car brakes and there is a noise from the front of the car.since then it keeps happening

Check engine, traction control is engaged, and traction control failure lights are on. Radio will not work. Car will only idle and won't run faster than 10mph.

So i took my vibe in for the airbag recall when i got the car back the "VSC Off" light was flashing and the Traction control light was on . Also the car was automatically engaging the traction. so when you drove the traction control was engaging thinking that we were skidding on the road . The airbag recall could it affect the VSC and the traction control , did the mechanic pull/thug on the wiring for it . I read that the spiral cable assembly and ffc were touched in the airbag recall someone please help thank you

There were fog lights after market on the car but broke. I saw the wire hanging down so I used the same wire. This wife went to the fuse box, a green fuse, so I hooked it to that and the other wire to ground. Turned it on, it came on but then turned off and I couldn't turn it on anymore. Radio works, lights work, when I turn the key, I hear something like a fan.

I know it sounds kind of stupid at first, but when I crank my car the lights come on immediately. Dark, light, doesn't matter. However, I have the light switch in the off position...as in it literally says off. So I'm not sure why any lights are on. There seems to be absolutely no way to turn them off at all other than to turn off the car. Please if someone knows a way to disable them let me know. Thanks.

I had a junkyard motor put into my car February 2013. The engine burns excessive oil. A year ago a man came out and helped me put xp performance plugs into the engine to stop the problem. It worked. Several months ago every now and tehn I would feel a shudder under me sometimes even in park. A tow company got a hold of my car recently and on my way back home I was losing power and could barewly get the engine over bridges. I am pulling a new code P0442. I never pulled that code before until after the tow company got my car. I am not currently pulling amisfire code. I put stp into a full gas tank recently and noticed a slight improvement. I still can't pick the car up to speed over 2 rpms without it bumping under me. What do you think it could be? My guess is a hose has come loose or was pulled on by the tow company. It is doing this often
