About Pontiac Torrent

Actually, as a rebadged first-generation Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 2005 and 2009 as a mid-size crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced to replace the predecessor Pontiac Aztek, Torrent slotted between compact crossovers and mid-size SUVs. Even won prizes in the reality television series Survivor and Criss Angel Mindfreak, Pontiac Torrent was discontinued after the 2009 model year as a result of the Chevrolet Equinox being redesigned and the demise of Pontiac brand, it was replaced by Buick Envision and GMC Terrain eventually.
Pontiac Torrent made its debut for the 2006 model year and was built at the GM Theta platform/GMT191, sharing with the Equinox with basic body structure and mechanicals. It came in two trim levels: Base and GXP as well as a Podium Edition, which was only available in Canada. Equipped with standard alloy wheels, air-conditioning and full-power accessories, Pontiac Torrent was powered by either a 3.4 L V6 rated at 185 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque or a 3.6 L V6 cranking out 264 hp and 250 pound-feet of torque, and engines sent power through 5-speed or 6-speed automatic transmission to front wheels or all wheels.

First of all, the engine will make some sounds such as squealing, whining and rattling, then the engine may run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues such as hard starting and inability to start. Before it fails completely, the loss of power while accelerating, bad gas mileage and lit Check Engine Light could be signs of inspecting Torrent spark plug, slip yoke, fuel pump, air filter, oil filter, body control module, and timing chain tensioner is needed. Since overheating due to the cooling system could aggravate the engine failure, the head gasket, intake manifold gasket and other parts of the cooling system should be maintained well.

Therefore, please make sure the Torrent steering knuckle, drive shaft, axle shaft, wheel bearing, shock absorber and sway bar bushing are working properly all the time. As for the braking failure, you need to be alert about the noisy brakes, pulsating brake pedal and score marked brake rotors, sometimes, the rear brakes will be locked up, especially on wet surfaces.
