Question about 2007 Pontiac G5 Gt Coupe

1 Answer

Brassy noise coimg from exhaust when accelerating and power response delayed after shifting and is worse when the a/c is on. Might have to have catalytic converter replaced and was wondering if this is covered under the 5yr/100,000 miles drivetrain warranty and if it is, would I have to pay labor costs if I bring my car to a pontiac dealer?

Yes the cat is covered, but u have to prove the cat is bad, that means u must pay diagnostic time in the dealer to verify the cat has failed, if it is the cat they won't charge u if it proves the problem is not the cat they will charge u at least one hour labor, about $125 on average.

Car trouble


The main problem with accents is the front exhaust pipe from the manifold, it has a 90 degree flexible pie that looks like steel wool......if you look down from the top of the motor down, you can just see the exhaust shield covering the manifold, and if you trace it down, you can see the very sharp bend. As it ages, the steel woven mesh becomes loose and creates this rattle buzz noise that is very annoying, and becomes worse on acceleration. Unfortunatley it needs to be replaced. No easy fix, unfortunatley.

I hope this is helpful, let me know if any more questions.

PLease vote if you liked this response. !!!!

When I press the gas pedal hard and it downshifts sometimes it gives a loud hissing type sound and feels like the clutch is slipping. I have the automatic tranny and the 3.0 on my 02 spyder convertible.


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

One of the most common complaints with automatics is fluid leaks. Fluid can leak out of the driveshaft seals, the input shaft seal, the transmission pan gasket, the torque converter or the ATF cooler and line connections. If the fluid level gets low, the transmission may be slow to engage when it is shifted into drive. Gear shifts may be sloppy or delayed, or the transmission may slip between shifts. If the fluid level is really low, the transmission may cause the vehicle to not go at all. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Ticking noise


A small exhaust leak can sound like a ticking noise during acceleration and can get better or worse as the system heats up. I had a similar problem when the engine was cold that was solved with a new exhaust manifold gasket.
