Car was running fine. Left to go home from work and started the car. The alternator light stayed on, the traction control light was on and couldn't be turned off and the console screen said reduced power. What do I do. Single mother here, this is my only vehicle. I made it home but it would quit. It would start back but still same thing happened. Thank you!

2009 pontiac g6 gt

steering wheel very hard to turn when first started sometimes won't turn at all, then suddenly my steering comes back with out warning ??

The car runs fine but the engine light is on. The cat converter is maybe 3 months. It failed inspection bc of the p0420. Is this going to be expensive?

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?
