Question about 2006 Pontiac Torrent

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Pontiac Torrent with around 39,000 miles. The engine light came on tonight. What could be the problem? Is it safe to adjust the gas cap (if it's a possible issue) and drive around for another day?

The check engine light indicates a problem with one or more of the sensors monitoring the engine. You will need to have someone scan the engine computer for trouble codes to find out what the problem is. If the engine is running ok, there should be no problem with driving it until you can have it scanned. I do not know if the gas cap is part of the problem.

Engine light was on... said running lean ...no


I appreciate the feedback and am somewhat better informed when I take the Torrent into the shop tomorrow...obviously a bandaid over the pig shaped engine light wasn't cutting it! The light came on within 10 miles.

2006 Pontiac Torrent rear drums


They pull off just like any other vehicle, unless you live in an area where they use salt. Brake and suspension parts on these rust and sieze quickly. Soak with penetrating oil and keep tapping around perimiter. I do this for a living, and I've had Torrent drums take me hours to break loose (I'm surprised the wheels even came off)
