Question about 2006 Pontiac G6
Twice I noticed our 2006 Pontiac G6 stutter while driving. 5 minutes later, the engine dies abruptly! I coasted into a parking lot and pulled into a stall and realized that even though the engine was dead, I still had power steering the entire time I was coasting. All gauges functioning, no trouble lights. Felt as though the engine seized up. Took the battery in and it was bad, BUT upon replacing, the engine will crank over one or two times and seize again. Starter is trying to turn over the engine but there is resistance. Help?
Check the oil and coolant levels. if coolant is low pull the sparkplugs and try to turn the engine over if still not turning free remove the serpentine belt and try again, if it turns over ok check the pullyes on the front of the motor to see if they all turn free by hand. a serpentine belt can prevent an engine from turning over if a tensioner, idler, water pump, alternator, or power steering pump is siezed up or starting to seize. being your battery is bad I'm thinking probably the alternator is seized. hope this helps mike.
