Question about 2006 Pontiac G6
My 2006 Pontiac G6 V6 has approx 64,000 miles on it and recently it started doing this. The car jerks as the power steering goes out, I get the "POWER STEERING" notification on my info center, then my spedometer drops to zero and my odometer reads "ERROR". Sometimes it will go in and out of doing this while I'm driving and sometimes it just stays out.
I've recently had a tune-up (spark plugs were replaced, wires and cap were fine), the oil changed, and air filter replaced and it's been hooked up for a diagnostic check THREE times already and NO error codes come back.
I'm a chick with limited car knowledge, but I'm not completely stupid, so I bought power steering fluid, thinking MAYBE that was the issue, but I can't even find the stupid reservior or stick to test it! (Apparently I'm not the only one though) Plus I'm not sure why that would affect the spedometer and odometer.
I don't want to spend a ton at the dealership again and my regular service guy can't find anything else wrong.
U may have a defective Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), they are not very expensive and easy to replace, it is located on the ouside of the transmission.
