#11 of 20 Carbon/soot in my exhayst pipe
Apr 27, 2008 (4:58 pm)
I have 3.5 and my milage is at 22 mpg. I can put my finger in the exhause pipe and it is covered with black soot. I have been to the dealer and have been told that everything checks out OK. In all my years black soot in the exhause is a sign of a rich mixture of fuel. Has anyone out there have an idea what steps i need to take to correct this problem..

Almost any decent auto shop has an exhaust gas analyzer nowadays.
If you think the dealer is incorrect, find an independent shop with a decent reputation and have then do a quick analysys. That should answer your question...

The pressure is not to exceed the pressure cap setting, malfunctioning pressure cap.
Should not exceed 15 psi, cap setting.
#16 of 20 G6 Engine blowup at 31000 miles
Apr 18, 2011 (9:07 pm)
I have a 2006 G6 GTP which I bought at 12500 miles. I really enjoyed this car with the great gas mileage and fun sporty look although the engine just died at 31000 miles. I have regularly maintenanced the vehicle with top of the line synthetic oil and premium gasoline. I just did the transmission flush as 30000 miles. Is this common to have this happen at such a low milage? Has anyone else had this happen? I hope it is covered under my warranty and if not than GM has made me a loyal Ford buyer from now on.

It looks like a mounting point for an engine cover used on an other-than-Pontiac vehicle.

Yea, I have the extended warranty although they are telling me that it is not a promise that this is covered. Although the warranty is bumper to bumper and the problem is an engine. I will be on the phone with GM for a while if this dealership tries to BS me

Where did you get a extended bumper to bumper warranty. My major Guard has limitations.
