Question about 2006 Pontiac G6

1 Answer

What do I need to check if code 442 comes up.

I have a 2006 pontiac G6 and engine light came on. So, I took it to pep boys to have a free check. And, they told me that it was something that deals with immission control system and the code number that they game me was 442. What would I check if this is something that I can fix myself.

Engine light comes on and stays on


You need to have the computer checked for codes, a OBD 2 code reader or scan tool is needed to check and retrieve the codes.Good news is kragen or autozone does it for free,if not them try pep boys.Or you can take it to any shop and pay $50-150 to have it checked.

You may need a more sophisticated scan tool for this type of analysis. Take it to a deal er or reputable mechanic who has such a tool. Without it, it can get very expensive with trial and error.

I have a 2006 Pontiac G6; 4 cylinder...the check engine light is on and I need to get it off for my emissions test so I need help finding out what the problem is. Ive had the car put on the scanner twice...


when you changed the parts did you have the codes cleared ? as if the comp stored it then it will return and when you put new parts on it took the comp time to test and display new changes.

2006 kia spectra engine check light came on but no obvious symptoms. maybe it comes on automatically at 50000 miles? appreciate help.


CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ONLY COMES ON IF THE COMPUTER PICKS UP A PROBLEM IN THE CAR. THERE ARE NEVER A FALSE REASON WHY THAT LIGHT WILL APPEAR. SOMETHING AS SMALL AS A GAS CAP LOOSE CAN TRIP THAT LIGHT. USUALLY AUTO- ZONE OR PEP BOYS WILL CHECK IT FOR FREE,BUT THEY WILL ONLY ASSUME WHAT THE PROBLEM MY BE.

My check engine light came on on my 3008 Pontiac G6. How do I get a code from it? Is there a trick or do I need a machine?


You need an OBD-2 scan tool. Or, many auto parts stores (Autozone, O'Reilly's, Pep Boys) will read the codes for you at no charge.

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.

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.
