If it mainly happens when under load, I would change the fuel filter. While a semi clogged filter will allows enough fuel to pass when idelling or at slower speeds, it might not give consistant fuel flow when at higher speeds or under load - like climbing a hill.

On nearly any common engine, you can follow the upper radiator hose toward the engine and find the thermostat. I is often under a dome-shaped housing attached to that hose and bolted to the engine block, often with 2, at the most, 3 bolts. When replacing the thermostat, ensure you get the correct replacement gasket and thoroughly clean the surfaces of the removable housing and the mating surface and use a thin film of silicone sealant or adhesive on both sides of the gasket and do not over-torque the mounting bolts when reassembling. Not moderating the force you use can result in twisting off a bolt which then presents another problem again. Unfortunately some cars may use a thermostat with a permanent element embedded that cannot be replaced without disposing of the entire multi-port housing that contains the thermostatic element; these are much more expensive to replace and no better than the simpler type.
If you are unsure, call several repair shops for quotes before turning your car over for this fairly simple job and you might check any business' reputation with your area BBB.

My 2008 Pontiac G5 has a pulsating feeling if I'm driving in town

A bad tire will cause that sensation at lower speeds. Also a bent rim. Do you feel it in the steering wheel?

Hi there! I am having the same issue. It seems like every time that it rains a lot this happens. Check the battery though, the ground connection of my battery is wet every time this happen's. Check if the battery is damp or wet, that is usually what causes it for me. I am in the process of getting a cover for it, or putting electrical tape over it.

Exhaust pinging

it is the exhaust actually cooling down, this is fairly normal especially in brand new vehicles or vehicles with new exhaust. the metal used in the exhaust expands with heat you shut the car off and the heat goes away so metal contracts. nice car by the way, my neighbor around the corner just bought a black one. good luck
