Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

P0013 p0014 - 2006 pontiac pursuit

I actually have the Canadian version of the G6 which is also known as the pursuit. So I took my car to the mechanic yesterday and they replaced the control arm and said everything was good to go. Im out driving around town and I realize the problem has not been solved. I take it back to the mechanic and they read my p0013 and p0014 and tell me (now) that this is wrong too - failed to tell me this the first time even though they knew. So, they have no idea what it could be - GM reports the camshaft sensor a $53 part plus labour. Details: Car is almost jolting when I change from Park to drive or drive to part. I am a 2.2 and automatic by the way. Check engine light is on and has been all night and this morning too. T/C is on when the car does the jolt like action, but not currently. It seems to appear after a (slightly) bumpy road. It does not matter if i step on the gas to speed up quick or if i am a granny leaving the stop sign. - it still occurs. Transmission fluid was also filled as the mechanic thought this could be an issue. Does any one have any suggestions on what these codes could mean? seems pointless to bring it back to the mechanic for them to replace the camshaft sensor if thats not the issue.

Hi Anbissch, The fault codes you report are related to the camshaft pick up sensor and the camshaft timing. I do not understand what the replacement control arms have to do with the problem you report. I believe if we are talking of the same parts, the control arms are related to the front suspension. Please make your enquiry more clear as it is difficult to understand. Regards John

SOURCE: transmission speedometer problem

This all can be caused by a defective Vehicle Speed sensor, also called a VSS, also run a test on the computer to see if any codes are in memory that will help to sort this problem out.

SOURCE: Just bought a 2001 Pontiac

This repair procedure should cost around 80.00 to 100.00 dollars. This includes the labor and part.
This will also depend on the shops labor rate and which O2 needs replacing as well as THEIR charge for the replacement O2.

SOURCE: 4 cyl. 2006 G6. P0106

you will need to some testing to islate problem

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Disconnect the MAP sensor.
Connect a voltmeter between the MAP sensor 5-volt reference circuit and a good ground.
Measure for a proper range of 4.8-5.2 volts between the MAP sensor 5-volt reference circuit and a good ground.
If the voltage is less than the specified range, then test the circuit for a high resistance. If the is normal, replace the ECM. If the voltage is more than the specified range, then test the circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit is normal, replace the ECM.With the MAP sensor still disconnected, use the scan tool to observe the MAP Sensor parameter for the proper value of less than 12 kPa.
If the MAP Sensor parameter is more than 12 kPa, then test the MAP sensor signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit is normal, replace the ECM.Connect a jumper wire between the MAP sensor 5-volt reference circuit and the MAP sensor signal circuit.
Use the scan tool to observe the MAP Sensor parameter for the proper value of more than 103 kPa.
If the MAP Sensor parameter is less than 103 kPa, then test the MAP sensor signal circuit for a high resistance. If the circuit is normal, replace the ECM.Turn OFF the ignition, and all electrical accessories. Allow sufficient time for the control module to power down before taking a resistance measurement.
Measure for a proper value of less than 5 ohms of resistance between the low reference circuit of the MAP sensor and a good ground.
If the resistance is more than 5 ohms, then test the circuit for a high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM.If the MAP sensor circuits test normal, then replace the MAP sensor.

I have a 2006 Pontiac G6; 4 cylinder...the check engine light is on and I need to get it off for my emissions test so I need help finding out what the problem is. Ive had the car put on the scanner twice...

when you changed the parts did you have the codes cleared ? as if the comp stored it then it will return and when you put new parts on it took the comp time to test and display new changes.
