    I finally got a code,P0014. Camshaft position sensor or Timing. Since the car has never been worked on related to timing i will try the sensor. If it works it will be time to try and trade for an import!

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.

I have the same problem, I was told by someone who's family member has the same car and problem, he said that it was the speed sensor. That is a $400.00 repair.

Hey Cab4457, Please take your pontiac to a reputable dealer.. you can "hunt and peck" at "fixes" for $$$$$ and still not fix it.. better to let someone that knows how, than spend $$$$ trying to do it yourself,, this sounds a little more than "shade tree" level issues!!

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
