Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Pontiac Aztek, for a long time It would make a popping noise when I would switch the temperature dial for hot to cold. Now I don't have cold air at all! Could the dial be the problem? Also I just had it recharged a couple of years ago.

You may want to do a inspection of your cooling system, here's a list that might help,

  • Check the thermostat, if it's defective replace it.
  • Check the coolant in the reservoir tank, it should be at the proper full level.
  • Sometimes when you change a thermostat there's a possibility you could get air in your coolant lines from having the coolant system opened up, this could keep your coolant from circulating through your system, if so you will need to bleed the air out of the coolant system.
  • The water pump should be inspected for leaking coolant out of the weep hole's, when a water pump go'es bad it may leak coolant, which would mean the seals on the pump are bad, also listen for squealing noise's coming from the pump when the car is started, if it squeals the bearings are bad, there is also a possibility the water pump fins are wore down from corrosion, there is no way to inspect this without removing the pump.
  • check the drive-belt for wear and tension, a bad tensioner or a bad drive-belt could have an effect on the operation of the water pump.
  • check the pressure cap on the coolant reservoir tank for good pressure, when you remove the cap you should hear a hissing sound this means you have good pressure in your cooling system, check for corrosion or build up on the cap, clean the cap if necessary, also check the coolant in the reservoir tank, it should be clean, if not you might need to have the cooling system flushed, during the flush you can observe if the coolant has a good flow through the system.
  • check the large upper and lower radiator hose's for crack's, swelling, and proper coolant flow.
  • Check the operation of the cooling Fan, and circuit, cooling fans use relays and fuses, some vehicles use more than one cooling fan, if your vehicle has two cooling fans there should be two relays and two fuses one for each fan, first visually inspect the fuses if one or both are bad replace them, you can test the relay or relays for continuity by removing them and doing a proper continuity test according to your relays circuit diagram.
  • Check the coolant temperature sensor, most coolant temperature sensors are located directly in the thermostat housing, this sends information to your pcm which determines when to turn your cooling fan on and off, if it's defective replace it.
  • Inspect the radiator grill for damage or debris build up.

SOURCE: how do i reset service light on 2001 pontiac aztek?

Before you re-set it, take the car to AutoZone or other similar store to read the code. That way, you know why the service light came on.
Then AutoZone can re-set it for you (all free)!

== or ==

Disconnect the negative cable from the battery for 10 minutes, or more.
When you re-connect the battery cable, the service light will have benn reset. But it will turn back on eventually.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Aztek power windows do not work when

Inside the door is a pair of rods, connecting a wire in a figure 8 pattern. There are four tiny little plastic tabs that surprisingly, break off fairly easily. I had mine break off when A GPS suction cup prevented the window from going down in auto mode and the window dropped into the door. Without those four plastic tabs, there is no way to connect anything and you have to get an entire new assembly for your window. You might be able to fabricate yourself some new ones, but if you can do that, then you're not on this site to begin with. The dealership wants an arm and a leg, but the unit is fairly self explanatory as long as you're comfortable taking your door apart and working on it yourself.

2001 pontiac aztec, temp guage shows (very) high) temp reading. I take the battery cable off, replace cable, then it appears normal. I have done this for 4 months, everything is OK. Now it no longer solves...


if you have high miles, 75k or more I would go ahead and have tempature sensor and thermostat it self change. I don't see battery cable would have any bearing to the temperature guage or cooling process. Both switch work almost the same, at time it work well other time it read or work incorrectly because it a sign of unit becoming faulty. If the temperature sensor is faulty half of the time it well give you incorrect reading however if the temp sensor working properly and the Thermostat is not, you will also get a high temp reading due to the Thermostat is not working properly allowing the hot antifreeze to flow out from the engine to the radiator which cause the hot antifreeze to be remain lock up in the engine block. Thermostat suppose to open and close when it reach its temperature; at the same time I would also replace thermostat switch which operate the cooling fan. all three tend to go bad over times; replacing all three is a great ideas. Thermostat, thermostat switch and temperature sensor.

2001 Aztek blowing cold air (strong) on left side of the car.


This is a blend door problem, this door diverts air either throgh the heater core or the AC accumulator core, it either provides hot, cold or a mixture or blend, this door is deep in the dash and in most cases the dash must be removed to service the little electric motor that operated the door.
