2008 Pontiac G6, stalls while driving. Engine light comes on. Takes 5-10 minutes to restart, after each restart it would just die after about 30 seconds. Never kept it running long enough to get home.

SOURCE: engine light 2006 pontiac g6(reset)

first be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.

SOURCE: Engine Seized up on a 2006 Pontiac G6

check the oil and coolant levels. if coolant is low pull the sparkplugs and try to turn the engine over if still not turning free remove the serpentine belt and try again, if it turns over ok check the pullyes on the front of the motor to see if they all turn free by hand. a serpentine belt can prevent an engine from turning over if a tensioner, idler, water pump, alternator, or power steering pump is siezed up or starting to seize. being your battery is bad I'm thinking probably the alternator is seized. hope this helps mike.

SOURCE: 91 Saturn stalls while driving

I'm having the same problem, so far what i can come up with is the IAC system ( intake air control) either the IAC valve or the stepper motor that the IAC valve sits on. I have already replaced valve and it is comming up code 35 IAC system. I'm thinking now i have to replace the stepper motor.

SOURCE: 2001 pontiac bonneville SSEi 3.8 l supercharged.

I have a 2000 Bonneville - I had a problem with the car stalling out - then it did not want to start back up. (When it did it would idle up and down and then die) I changed out the mass air flow sensor - now I have not had a problem. Good luck with it.

My 2008 Pontiac G6 just had the fuel pump replaced, since then (2 weeks) every 2-3 days my car will not start. If I wait 30 minutes or so the car will then start.


When it doesn't start, is it from a stone cold engine or is the engine warmed up and the 20 or 30 minutes lets it cool down? If it's warn then, I'd be going after the CPS (crank position sensor) sometimes they work fine when the car is cold but then they do not want to start when it hot. If it is the sensor, it will only get worse over time and leave you stranded.

The heater in my 2008 pontiac G6 doesn't work how do i fix it


Is the fan blowing for the vents? If not the problem is a fan issue which is much more likely. The hot water usually goes through the heater core all the time and the only reason you get heat when called for is that air is directed across the fins and coils where your engine coolant is going through. Of course the heat does not come on until the engine has heat built up in it say after about 7 minutes of run time depending on ambient temperature.

2005 g6 stalling


I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.
