Just bought a 2007 G6 for my son's first car. I am a reactor operator at a nuclear power plant in Virginia. I may not be able to figure out what's wrong with a car, but can fix it when I know what the problem is.
Couple of things about the car so far:
1. The car has been wrecked twice, once left front and the other is unknown (but I got it fairly cheap).
2. The steering is a little different than any other car I have ever driven. The car responds very quickly to when shimmying the wheel left and right around center, but seems hard to actually get it to turn when making a left or right. Is this normal for the G6?
3. Took it to my mechanic after buying and he replaced leaking oil pressure switch. Following repair the check engine light was on and the code was P0496, high purge flow for a set amount of time. Any relation to the repair at all? I am going to ask mechanic tomorrow. I disconnected negative terminal to reset check engine light and see if it comes in again.
Any help/advice about the G6 is appreciated and thank you.
P.S. 144000 miles
