Sounds like ice in fuel line. Add drygas to remove water. Try not to store vehicle with gas tank empty.

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

No heat in 2006 pontiac torrent, only cold air it

It sounds like your blend door is broken. I have a 2006 Pontiac Torrent as well and this happened to me last spring. Luckily, I live in AZ so I didn't have to deal with it until now. It costs approximately $1000 to fix as they have to take the entire dash out of the car. I will take all day to fix a piece of the car that costs $97. Pontiac should do a recall as this happens to almost every car.

Check for low coolant, you might also have a sticking thermostat. Alot of fords get air pockets, make sure if it needs coolant to let it run for about 10-15 min with the radiator cap off.

Could be a thermostat issue?

Could be a faulty thermostat. Take a piece of cardbourd and cut it so you can put it in front of the radiator and fix it so it will stay there. Drive the car and watch your temperature gauge to see if it warms up faster but be careful as to not let it overheat. If it starts to heat up cut a 1/4 of the cardboard so a little more of the radiator shows then watch the temperature gauge. Leave it there for the winter then take it out. That is the cheapest remedy when it is cold. I take it when your heater blows it is not not every warm is that correct?
