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).

Where do you check transmission fluid on a 2010 HHR


You may want to check with the dealership but all the mechanics know that those hhr's came with sealed Transmissions which mean that they are lifetime Transmissions I've never known a car company not even Bugatti mix a lifetime transmission fit doesn't exist there's no such thing that's one of the biggest lies I have ever heard when it comes to mechanics so I don't think that they have a stick if they do you can find it on YouTube or call the dealership they don't have information for

Truck works fine in R, 1, and 2 nothing in 3 or D. 2006 Silverado V-6 automatic 1/2 ton


Hey Anon, Yes, drive it to the tranny shop..plan to leave it... sounds like you are in for a rebuild.. this is typical for GM RWD transmissions.. I have seen TOO many do this same thing,, (I have had TWO in for this... vehicles I inherited that were not maintained)..GM transmissions on RWD's must have the fluid and filter changed every 50K - 75K and a complete fluid exchange and filter replacement every 120K -150K MINIMUM for them to last..usually cost around $1200 - $1400.. sorry.. Good luck!

2001 chevy impala error code P0756


That code is for the transmission. It indicates a mechanical failure within the transmission. There is a technical service bulletin issued by GM in regards to it. TSB# 01-07-30-036C. If the car is under warranty GM will fix it. If not, cost of repair will has to be paid by you. This issue is related to 2nd and 3rd gears, could has debris in orifice #29 inside transmission.

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.

Why is the back plate for my 1995 Chevy K1500 stepside cost $350.00? years before and after are around $30 bucks. What's up with this?


Because GM likes to change things for no reason at all. The 305 and 350 engines in the 80's and 90's have three different rear main seals. No reason at all, same transmissions and engines, even same engine codes, but different seals. They do this all the time and this is why, among other reasons, I don't buy or own GM or Chrysler vehicles.

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.
