SOURCE: where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.

SOURCE: rear window defroster pontiac sunfire

those can be tricky to solve. get in the back of the car and look for a connector on the window. some times for some reason they let go. if it has let go then visit you auto store and ask for a fix there are a few products that are cheap. if it has not let go then if you know how to use a multi meter check for voltage on the connector/s if theres voltage then there is a break in the defroster somwhere

The OBD II code for P0400 is Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction.
I'm sure the only thing you have left is you may have to replace the EGR valve or check for any leak from the vaccum lines going to to EGR valve.

SOURCE: How to change a window motor in a 2005 pontiac

If possible, bring the window down to about 2/3rds raised

Remove the door trim panel.

Carefully remove the plastic liner from the door - it should be stuck on with of gooey black stuff. You will be re-using the goo and plastic so be careful with it and dont let the goo'd surfaces touch each other and dont get the goo too dirty.
The inside edges of the metal on the door can sometimes be like a razor blade - you were warned.

You might want to move the window up or down a bit until you can see the bottom of the glass where it joins the rails. This is difficult if the window is stuck full open or full closed - just be patient and careful in these cases. The window connects to the rails somewhere along the bottom of the glass and you might have to feel around to find the clips.Unbolt or unclip the window from the regulator rails and lift the window up and out of the door.

Remove the bolts holding the regulator and motor assembly. There are probably 2 bolts on each of the 2 rails and 2 or 3 bolts on the motor assembly. My guess is that they are 10MM metric bolts. The regulator cables will be clipped onto the door in 2 or 3 spots, push these clips back into the door then drop the motor forward enough to unhook the wire harness from the motor.

At this point you sort of fold up the whole regulator assembly and pull it out.

Replacing the motor with a genuine GM part is VERY expensive. usually, for about 1/3rd of the price of the motor alone, you can get a complete regulator assembly (motor included) from an aftermarket source.

Can i change just the censor in the throttle body on my 2005 pontiac g6

On your car and many newer model cars the throttle body is one piece, with a built in tps/throttle position sensor. On older models they were serviceable. You could try cleaning the mechanical part of the throttle body, and see if that helps.

Most likely, your Idle Air Controller (also known as Idle Air Bypass) is sticky or simply malfunctioning. Your Throttle Position Sensor may also be defective.

My 1996 Pontiac Sunfire GT occasionaly bucks and jumps after running for about 5 to 10 min. I say this will happen about 20% of my driving time! Otherwise it runs great. I have already changed air and fule...

Could be tps or just a dirty throttle body or intake. They do get black inside of those. If your negative battery cable is grounded well to an unpainted surface, that could cause some intermittent jolts.
A camshaft position sensor if you have one on this car, could do that to. You should have your engine codes scanned to see if it comes up with anything. If no bad sensors are found, then clean throttle body/intake and check your plug wires.
