Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

Transmission is shifting poorly, jerking

My transmission is doing the same thing. Three different dealerships say the car is running within GM specs and there is nothing we can do. The 3rd dealership did say that the intermittent check engine light for the camshaft positioning actuator module pointed to "dirty engine oil". When they changed the oil, it was clean but still said it could have been bad (low viscosity, etc.). The dealership told me to drive it for a while and see what happens. Their explanation was that the engine oil lubricates the camshaft which works with the transmission also. I don't know if this will help but I'm giving it a try.

SOURCE: 1998 SUNFIRE GT TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

There are 3 transmissions that could be in your car,the 3 speed auto and 4 speed auto overdrive,and of course the manual 5 speed.The 3 speed is designated the 3T40,the 4 speed auto is the 4T40E trans.To check the fluid level,first,the car has to be warmed up to at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit.The car has to be raised in the air,as there is a steel plug in the trans case that has to be removed to check the fluid level.The plug takes an 11 mm or 7/16" socket or wrench and is located on the passenger side of the trans case,near where the passenger side axle engages into the trans.The procedure is to warm the car up to at least 100 degrees,engage the shifter into each gear selection pausing for about 5 seconds in each gear,then remove the plug.If fluid drips out,it is full.If no fluid drips out,add fluid through the top of the trans after removing the red plastic cap,and make sure to use a long funnel to avoid a mess.Add fluid until it drips out the hole.When done,replace the plug and cap.Just a note,a transmission does not "use" fluid like an engine uses oil.If you have to add fluid,that means there is a leak that needs to be repaired.Good luck

NOT bad it is alot of work involved with changing this seal. However if you have a local shop like a Pep boy or something like that it may be cheaper for you , however I would recommend getting the seal from AUDI, rather than after market its better. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

You do not have a choice, you must go to a dealership. They have a computer for this prupose and it does not cost much. I usually drive into the service drive through and the shop foreman does this for me in about 5-10 min. and the charge is minimal. The keys are what cost a small fortune.

Both sound like bad advice.
To reset:
Go to AutoZone and get a scan of the fault code and a print-out (all free services). Then have them reset the unit (after you get the fault codes).
Let us know awhat the fault codes are and whet the print-out says (summary).

The first thing I would want to know is where the fluid is going.
If the transmission has an electrical problem with a sensor or solenoid, you should have a check engine light with a trouble code.

I have a 2000 GMC safari van 2-wheel drive. When it shifts to 3rd it seems to jump into neutral. What can cause this? Changed transmissions and it is doing the same thing


My local transmission specialst tells me that ALL GM van transmissions run hot. Especially within the Safari/Astro design - that doesn't reflect the wind very well (compared to today's smaller mini-vans). He recommends ATF aux cooler (LPD Design) be installed in all Safari / Astro vans - even non-towing vans. For example, Hayden 678 or 679 LPD design.

re: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HDA-678/

If wondering, I installed Hayden 679 in my prev AWD Safari van and installed Hayden 678 in my wife's smaller size GM mini-VAN. re: http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-UpperSupport-2.jpg &http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-LowerSupport-1.jpg

As a suggestion, install the LPD aux cooler design (re: Tru-cool or Hayden 678 or 679) in your "running hot" GM van. These ATF coolers work great in my GM vans...

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

Hard shift when accelerating and slowing down


Check your transmission fluid level when the engine is running and the car is in 'park'. add extra appropriate fluid as necessary via the dipstick tube. When 'max' is reached I think you will notice a return to normal shift operation.

I have a 2004 Impala that transmission jerks into gears periodically when doing a bit of stopping and starting off. Have talked to other Impala owners,and some have had tranny problems also. It just...


This is common problems to the transmission when the fluid is getting to dirty and the transmission fluid and filter needs to be replaced. The transmission fluid and filter should be replaced every 45,000 miles to ensure there is no dirt causing the shift servos from binding. The other thing to is that when the transmission fluid get's to dirty, the fluid gets thicker. It retains fluid retention which can cause conflicts in the transmission sensors. What your experiencing is, your transmission is not shifting back to first gear and sticking in to 2nd gear. When you get on the gas peddle, the transmission sensors realize that it needs to be in 1st gear, so as the engine's RPM goes up and the transmission drops back to 1st, you get the jerking condition which will in turn cause you a $2,300.00 transmission replacement. For now when starting off from a stop, let the engine creep forward on it's own first to ensure that the transmission has shifted in to 1st gear. Then get on the gas peddle lightly till you have the transmission serviced. $100.00 transmission service is better then $2,300.00 transmission replacement. Good luck and do not have a transmission fluid flush, just filter and fluid replacement.

your transmission has possibly been rebuilt with stronger springs put in. No worries. have been running mine for along while without any problems. Better this than slipping, but it is a bit annoying.

Checkin trans fluid


Here is how I do it. Hope this helps.

AT Fluid Level Check (No Dipstick)

Fill through Check/Fill plug on the bottom to the rear of the transmission oil pan until fluid flows over from hole. Install plug and with engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With transmission in PARK and engine running, remove Check/Fill plug and add fluid as needed until it flows over from hole. Transmission oil temperature must be 86° to 130° F (30° to 55° C)
