Question about 2008 Pontiac Torrent
It hAS just started doing this over the last two weeks, we have put whole system cleaners in called sea foam, and have emptied that tank but it is getting worse not better, the engine light used to just flash then go off, for the past two days it has stayed on steady. before when it would flash off, we thought it was just the O2 sensor since we were revving it maybe not burning enough gas off, but now we have no idea!???
Sediment may have clogged the injectors. Was there any dirt or grit in the tank ?

I had the same issue, it felt like my transmission was acting up. After searching and searching I found others with the same issue, it was a spark plug that was out....There was a recall on them....The dealership will replace the one that is bad.

Take the vehicle to a repair shop
discuss the problems
Nothing you have done was necessary or required
You had an engine light on in the past
You have to check for codes the next day &
diagnose the vehicles faults & correct them,not
continue to use the vehicle & guess at what if's

Absolutely; wasn't positive until you mentioned the 'hum'. Bad bearings first warning sign is usually the humming noise before the vibration but since you have both, I'd be shocked if it weren't the bearinig, especially since you've got new rotors. In the past, a badly turned or warped rotor would mimic a bad bearing. Best of luck.

that code is from having the plugs wires reversed as you did and the o2 senors regrsitered the overload on gas emmions once you remove the battery cables for about 5 minutes and then recconect and run the engine it should be okay
