Question about 2006 Pontiac G6
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.

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

SOURCE: 1999 Audi A6 Bad Camshaft Seal
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.
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).
