Question about 2009 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

I found a 2009 Pontiac G6 with 19,500 miles. Does anyone know of any weak points that should be watched on that vehicle?

The car is white and appears to be in good shape. There is a small amount of paint missing from the bottom of the fuel filler area. (Is this car one of those white GM products that likes to shed paint?)

    Thanks, Steve. I already checked it out. I have already put about 4000 miles on the car and I am very happy with it. I repainted the fuel filler recess, but I was just curious if anyone from this group might know specifically about issues with this year, make, and model of car having issues with the paint peeling. I believe the paint that was missing was probably due to exposure to spilled gasoline that pooled there. Before I bought it, the car was a leased fleet vehicle. That would explain the low mileage.

Be wary of a 5 year old vehicle with only 19,500 miles , worth taking to a reliable repair shop and have them give it the once over to be sure

Testimonial: "No worries. I checked out the car already and am pretty happy with it. The low miles is due to the fact that it was previously owned by a fleet management company and used as a lease vehicle. I was mostly curious about the paint. Hopefully the paint that was missing from the bottom of the fuel filler recess was due to fuel puddling there. I am wondering if the paint on this year/make/model was prone to peeling."

SOURCE: I have an electrical problem.

well the window and seat problem is probably a broken wire in the harness between the door and body open rubber boot and inspect and repair
the fuel i would start by checking for power at connector back by fuel tank you should have power with key on for about 10 seconds then turn key off and wait for a few seconds and try if you have power it is probably the fuel pump

I had a 2008 Supercrew that had that prob. One of the tires was defective. It balanced ok but at speed would vibrate. The dealer sent me to Discount Tire. They have a machine that will detect problems like yours. I don't remember the name of the machine. Have your dealer take it or send you there. I would think Goodyear would have the same equipment but maybe not. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1999 Pontiac Grand Am -needs minor auto body repair.

Depanding on how bad the body damage is you may need to just go to a junk yard or ebay and get new doors. If its Just paint use acetone to get the other cars paint off.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 2001 pontiac grand am

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

Is there any factory grounding points in the rear of the 2009 pontiac torrent?

Any metal part in the car is a ground point. Just figure out where is most convenient for a ground point, drill a hole, and make sure you sand a little area around that hole so you have some bare metal showing. Connect your ground, and touch up any bare metal showing (after it's all in place) so that it isn't prone to rust.

Desicant drier

Can anyone point me to the actual service bulletin. My 2012 Escape did this (2000.00) My daughter's 2010 as well (4000.)
She took hers to a dealer while warranty was still good and they bled the AC (which we now realize pulled the dessicant back long enough to have it work poorly until the warranty expired.) 26 year olds don't have 4000. to fix the AC.

In your owners manual there is a phone number to file a complaint to the corporation. Do that first of all. I owned a Hyundai that did very strange things although I had strange braking problems which was repaired at a shop of my preference and was reimbursed.
The problem with yours has to be an internal transmission problem. Nothing will be found unless the transmission is removed and completely torn apart for inspection. More than likely a brass bushing is egged out making the trans to act so eractic

Are there any vehicles at all, that don't have some kind of weak points to watch for? I know I haven't found any yet. With said, stop at local library and ask for a book called "Lemon aid" . It's a list of all vehicles and all things to watch for and to expect down the road.
