I made the heater door repair myself last year. It took about 8 hours to take it all apart. About 3 hours
to fox it and about 10 hour to put it back together. While it was apart, I modified the door motor so that
it would not over-travel the door and break again (hopefully).. Good luck with it.
Any other problems has the Torrent Pontiac? I am at the point to bay bach is a 2008 and I am not to
sure in a long run to have problems anyone can help?
My Pontiac Torrent heater will work sometimes but not all the time. Sometimes if you turn engine off
and restart it will work and sometimes not. Any suggestions on what the problem is?
|First check the coolant level. If that is OK, then
you may have a bad temperature door motor.
Get it looked at as soon as possible in case it
ends up breaking the temperature door, as
Thank you for this information. I have the same problem with our Pontiac Torrent we purchased in
October. I have given this link, and the information to our Ministry of Transportation, they are taking it
seriously. Sad that you can adjust this part to not have it reoccur, but GM could not do this for the
shear fact of the safety issue alone :(.
I too am having the same problem. No heat! Just had it looked at for a repair estimate and I was
quoted $850.00 for the parts and a 8 hr repair job.
|That does not make sensor that the parts are
$850, and 8 hours labor. I think you
misunderstood. I think the total with labor is
$850. The part is only $25.
My repair estimate is $1,200 for the heater. Same issue every one else is having. Our 2006 Pontiac
Torrent has 44k miles on it. Is garaged year round and doesn't even have a scratch on it... It's
In better shape then my new car... I'm so pissed right now I can chew through barb wire.... I'm looking
into filing a complaint.. I will never buy another GM car.
|I've had this issue twice now on my Pontiac. Its a nightmare in the winter with my little kids.
|MY wife's 06 has the same condition.
How do you file a complaint. This vehicle has been nothing but trouble for us.
The first major issue was the heating element for the pass seat caught the seat on fire and burned my
wifes coat! We should have sued when we had the chance.
