2006 G6 Hard Shifting fixed
Hey gang, I've been lurking around since my issue first popped up a couple of months ago. I was driving down the street, came to a stop and when I began to take off, there was a hard jerk. It was so hard, I looked behind me as I thought I had been rear-ended. Alas, there was no one there. A couple of weeks later, the hard shifting returned along with the CEL. The hard shifting only occured in the low gears. I scanned my car with an OBD reader, and it threw out codes of P0010 and P0011(Cam Shaft Position Sensor Actuator).
That's when I came here to see if others have had similar issues. I took my car(2006 G6 2.4L), to the dealership. The diagnosed the problem as a loose timing chain and recommended replacing the Control Valve Solenoid, the Actuators, as well as the Timing Chain. It took a nice chunk out of my account, $1570. However, the car runs great...for now. I just got back from a round trip from GA to KY and haven't had any issue with the hard shifting yet. Hopefully, this solved my problem and may help anyone else out there that may be experiencing similar problems.
