2009 Pontiac Solstice Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Solstice? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. This is a sign that your vehicle is testing its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why is my Pontiac Solstice making engine noise? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Pontiac Solstice engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. Whistling could mean a belt is misaligned or there's an intake leak. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • What could damage my Pontiac Solstice engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I put water in my Pontiac Solstice radiator? While it’s not recommended, you can use water in your Solstice radiator in emergencies. Normally, you should only use a 50/50 mix of coolant and water or a pre-mixed coolant. However, if you are completely out of coolant and must continue driving, it’s better to have water in your coolant reservoir than nothing.
  • What can cause a Solstice engine to suddenly stop? There are different reasons your Solstice vehicle engine could suddenly stop. You may be looking at a lack of fuel, faulty sensors, issues with the ignition system, engine overheating, electrical problems, or mechanical troubles.
