20 Most Recent 2001 Pontiac Aztek Questions & Answers


The symptoms you describe exactly match those I encountered a while ago with an Isuzu engined Vauxhall where the management system falsely detected an overboost condition.

I didn't do the repair but I understand the car was fitted with a new egr valve.
Sometime later a very similar set of symptoms were presented but in that case the crankshaft sensor was cutting out when the engine reached a fairly high temperature. Switching off and waiting a few minutes was all that was needed to restore performance for a while.

If you have a multi-function dimmer/turn signal switch: YES it will correct the problem.

This is located on the top/side of the gas tank on the drivers side of the tank. instructions for removal- jack the front left side of the car up, unbolt top bolt that holds the heat shield and evap canister up place another jack under gas tank before the strap. (i use the jack that comes with the car i find it easier) unbolt 1st strap lower the tank down there should be enough clearance to lower half of the tank down without droping the entire thing

It's a huge job that requires you to remove the dash. It's not a do it yourself project unless you've got a professional grade shop manual with step by step directions, wiring diagrams and illustrations. Try alldatadiy.com or eautorepair.net or ask your local libarary if they have those online for free

If the ignition switch and key are ok. The steering wheel lock can be easily disengaged by rocking the steering wheel back and forth and at the same time. Try to rotate the ignition from run to start. If the anti-theft light is flashing there should be an active fault within the security system. GM has a sensitive ignition switch you are not suppose to hang anything from the ignition key. The weight can damage the halo (part of the anti-theft system). Please write back and give me an idea of what you are looking for and how you want to proceed. Good Luck.

logic says stop throwing parts at it and get it checked by a real mechanic

1. Remove transmission oil pan (be careful oil will splash all over)
2. Remove all bolts slowly, so oil will drain slowly
3. Transmission oil pan gasket is reusable
4. Clean oil pan and let transmission oil drip then reinstall pan and gasket.(At the same time you can change the transmission oil filter.
5. Fill with transmission oil fluid (see specification) 4 liters Dexron4 fluid
6. Start the engine place transmission lever to park or neutral
7. At the same time remove plug (see pictures ) until fluid comes out the transmission plug hole. (replace the plug)



Hope it helps.

Wouldn't start ???? When you turn the key to the start position you hear clicking , starter doesn't engage an spin the engine , correct ? Filling up with fuel wouldn't cause this . You replaced the starter an battery , just guessing ! If you don't know how to test automotive electrical circuit's maybe you should take it to a qualified repair shop.

What says it's over heating ? Temp. gauge ? Message on DIC ? what ? GM instrument clusters had problems with stepper motors . 2003 to 2006 . Replaced bunches of them . people would think the vehicle was really over heating , but wasn't . After replacing all the parts like you did ,an still not fixing the problem ,would bring to the shop . The proper way to diagnose would be to hook up a factory or professional scan tool an see what the temp sensor is telling the PCM - engine computer . Use a infrared thermometer an see what the temp is . does it match what the scan tool shows . What info is the instrument cluster receiving from the PCM over the class 2 serial data network . Do all this from the driver seat before replacing parts . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.

pull the plug from #1 and see if it is absolutely clean. if so yep you have a gasket problem. white smoke is a good indicator of a blown head gasket or cracked head
