2006 PONTIAC G6-TRANSMISSION JERKING

I thought I was the only one with that stinking problem. The same thing happened around 56K my G6 started to shift extremely hard into 1st and 2nd. The "check engine" light is on all the time. The repair shop I took it to said he couldn't find a thing wrong with the transmission. Now I have someone else out there that has the same problem as me. I think Pontiac really made a mistake when they put this car together.

    Thank you for your response....

    i had the codes read when i took it there for the rattle in the dashboard. it only read the ox sensor. the light on doesn't bother me really, it's the constant hard shifting in 1st and 2nd gear. There is always a way to turn the light off.

  • sweet2th68 Jul 22, 2009

    this might be better to understand...

    Every time, it shifts gears the car jerks me back. When you turn on the car it jerks it forward. When you go from Park to reverse to drive it jerks it forward also.

    actually.. my car idles for a couple of minutes. especially in the morning when i am waiting for my son to get out the door for camp or school. LOL. Thank you anyway. I will try the dealer where I bought it from. Maybe they know about these problems.

    are you letting the automatic idle speed controkl slow the idle before you engage a gear? I suspect not, wait a few seconds before putting into gear..

    have u had the trans tested for trouble codes? if the check engine light is on then there is a code, take it to the new car dealer and forget those outside shops.

Omg. i wish i read these comments before i bought my car. My pontiac G6 is doing the same thing. it jerks forward when i put it it in drive and it recently started to do this when i put it in reverse. Then, my engine light came on. I thought it was my air filter that was causing the problem but i got it changed and the **** stopped for a day but now its back to jerking again. Someone please let me know how i can fix this problem. thank you.

    my 2007 pontiac g6 is doing the same thing shifting hard when in drive and putting it into reverse, thought it was my transmission also, but its not, it comes up cam position sensor, replaced it, still doing it and the engine light is still on, everyone should really report this problem to pontiac, it defenitely is a defect on pontiacs part and needs to be a RECALL

SOURCE: 2006 Pontiac G6 Transmission Jerking

I've had this same issue with my 2006 G6 on and off for about a year now. I've had three different places (one dealership and two service places) try to determine the problem and NONE of them have been able to get an Error Code when they ran a diagnostic.

The dealership replaced the battery, my one service guy did a complete tune up, changed the oil and air filter and checked the alternator. Again, he couldn't get an error code either.

I finally read on here that it could be the speed sensor, so I replaced that. It seemed to solve the problem for approx 6 months and now it's doing it again, only worse this time.

BTW - the speed sensor itself only costs about $40 - $50 bucks, so buy the part yourself (go to any auto parts store - but let them know that you need the speed sensor that goes by the transmission, not the one for the ABS) and have a local service mechanic replace it for you. It shouldn't take more than an hour TOPS, so don't let them rip you off on the labor just because you're supplying the part.

So after replacing the battery, spark plugs and speed sensor (not to mention maintenance related work - oil/air filter changes, etc) - I still have SOME sort of an electrical problem.

Sluggish engine pontiac g6


Sounds like a transmission issue, have the car scanned for ant transmission related codes. Most transmission shops will check to make sure your transmission is working 100% free of charge. With what you have described, almost sounds like you don't have 1st or 4th gear and your transmission is running on 2nd and 3rd gear. Easy fix if the 1st-4th solenoid needs to be replaced, or the wire harness has gone bad. Start with getting your car scanned and let me know if your transmission is starting on 2nd. Good luck
