Pontiac Vibe QuestionsRefine by vehicle
When I drive from Palm Springs to Yucca Vally - steep hill - my check engine light comes on when I start back down the hill. The light stays on for 2-3 days then goes off. I took it to mechanic once but the light was off and he couldn't find a problem.
Blower motor stopped working. Have not pulled it to test it yet. It was suggested to me that a Relay may be the problem. I cannot find if and where this relay is located. It's not in the under-dash drivers side fuse box and not in the fuse box under the hood according to the fuse layout in the owner's manual.
Took my car to Autozone when check engine light came on..code said "pressure control solenoid"..goes to garage tomorrow..I only have 31,000 miles on my 2007 Vibe!!
this pole is additional to the taller on top of the vibe.is common to 2006 models but not all 06 models have it
my car has 70K miles on it.
how do i fix this and could it be the eao vaalve
The car began running very loud especially when started and whenever I hit the accelerator. The car is easily 2x louder than normal. It seems to drive okay, but I haven't taken it very far since the noise started. No check engine lights turned on.
could it be plugged or how do you test to see if is working
is it done from outside or from inside the panel on hatch door
it has 58,000 miles with no previous probs. of this sort.
The door clicks open and shut constantly if I turn on my defroster which I need at this time of year. I must hold in the max air button to keep the door from opening and closing. But then it uses only recycled air from the interior of the car.
Car has 218k and running great. well maintained. noticed the rear wheels (solid axle) are cambering in (almost like the axle is weakening), so the tires are wearing the inside edge. with a solid axle, dont understand how this can be happening! what a bummer. any fixes out there? shim the drums? replace the axle? I am trying to get to 250k! Thank you in advance.
trouble shoot why we have to keep replacing coils. They are charging us a LOT to replace the valve cover.
cant remove rotor hub nut needs to be losen but how
The air bag light is now on. The insurance company says the collision could not have caused it. The code says bad module. Is this possible. They also say the passager air bag is turned off. I do not not remember doing this. Any ideas?
engaging when engine is off clutch spins freely
both lamps are out,according to the cop that stopped me.
every time i roll down the window
cruise control does not light up as being on , and cruise control does not work at all. the dealership where i bought the 2009 vibe new and have always used them to service the car wants 100.00 to put on the diagnositic machine is there a cheaper way of fixing it?
Discount Tires (where I get all my tires) tells me my 2007 Vibe needs alignment. I took it to my "trusted" repair shop and they tell me it needs rear wheel alignment as well as front end. They quoted me a price of nearly $200, saying that "shims" were needed on the rear. $200 - really?
The only time there is a squeak is when I am making the 3 point turn to get out of my driveway.
The vehicle does have just under 120k miles, was averaging 33 mpg just 8 months ago, and now get 28 mpg. The oil is changed every 3k miles, tires kept at proper psi, just had the transmission serviced.
just changed the head and did not get the order for lifters they have numbers in it and now i do not know what order they go - it is 1.8L with numbers like 42 48 etc
my 2009 pontiac vibe turn signals do not work when it is warm out. the regualar headlights don't work either, although the daytime running lights do work and then headlights work when it gets dark out. Very very frustrated. Have taken it to the dealership but when I get there everything works and so they find no issue..ugh...
Fuses are fine dont know what else to try
I called a dealer to quote a transmission flush and he told me this car doesnt need a flush. He explained that it uses a special fluid to replace and that's it. Does this make sence? He said this was per the manuel. I will look myself, but was looking for other peoples thoughts and experiences with this.
Lights out cant see shifter at night.
When I bought the car, the person had just replaced the front (bank 1) O2 sensor. 10 days later the light comes on and the code indicates that same sensor. I had a friend clear the code. Light came back on about a month later, then went off by itself.
Is all this necessary? The car's gas mileage has decreased by 10% in the last 6 months.
