SOURCE: engine light 2006 pontiac g6(reset)

first be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.

SOURCE: What is the tirck to change the headlights on a

  1. On the back of the assembly, unplug the harness that goes to the bulb.
  2. Then pull off the rubber sealer.
  3. There's a wire clip that goes along the bottom side of the bulb to hold it in place. Push that clip in (towards the front of the car) and down to release it.
  4. Pull out the old bulb.
  5. Insert the new bulb the same way (do not touch the bulb as that will cause it to exploded later on from the oil residue. Clean with rubbing alcohol if you touch the glass)
  6. Twist it back and forth to make sure it locks into place.
  7. Replace the clip by pushing in and up until it clicks into place.
  8. Replace the rubber sealer. Push around the entire edge until it snaps into place.
  9. Replace the wire harness.

SOURCE: how do I expose the motor on a 2006 pontiac g6 to

Remove everything from the headliner and remove all of the trim holding it in place. Carefully pry the headliner out from one side and the rest will now be easily removed. Unless the car has been subject to abuse and intense heat the headliner will not come loose from the backing and can be reinstalled.

SOURCE: changing rear brakes on 2006 pontiac G6 how do i

Ok! here is the solution ...
After changing the pad dont try to push back the piston the old fashioned way or you will broke the caliper casting.
This new kind of break should be only twisted clockwise to bring the piston back to its position you can use only long nose pliers to rotate the piston since there is two cavity on the piston for this use.
Also after setting the piston back to it's position take care of the seal around the piston be shure before replacing the caliper over the disk that the seal will not go between the disk and the pad...
slide the pads gently to it's position and that's it.

How can I tell which catalytic converter is bad on my 2005 Pontiac g6

If its restricted there will be a loss of engine power. If exhaust has the rotten egg smell converter is over worked due to excessive fuel, check fuel system. Restriction can be checked with a vacuum gauge. Connect gauge to full manifold vacuum, speed engine to about 1800 rpm's vacuum should rise if vacuum decreases there is a restriction in the exhaust system.

How do you unclog catalytic convertor?

To my knowledge there isnt a way to unclog them, you have to replace them. The catalytic converters on the G6, run about a thousand dollars a piece, and that without installation, and theres to converters. Go on ebay, I found both of my catalytic converters for around 300 apiece, and they were brand new, by a good manufacturer.

Engine reduced power

Your catalytic converters may be plugged. They have had problems out of the converters on the G6s. Probably have to take it to a mechanic, but im going to forewarn you, a catalytic converter for a G6 is around $1,000.00 each, and if its a V6 theres two converters. What I did was went on ebay and I found 2 brand new converters, one was $227.00 and the other $238.00 free shipping on that one, and they also have remanufactures converters too.

Which is the bank two o2 sensor in a g6 gt

Bank 1 is always the cylinder bank that has piston/cylinder no. 1 in it; usually the left side in a rear wheel drive GM, or the front side in a front wheel drive GM. The O2 sensor will be located on either the exhaust manifold, engine exhaust pipe after the exhaust flange, or on the catalytic converter for the 2 bank.
If this helps you, please remember to vote/comment, and good luck.
