Customer Question

I disconnected the battery on my 2007 torrent with no success
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Pontiac. The Pontiac Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Car will not drive forward only revs. Check engine light and stability n traction light on
JA: Diagnosing the correct check engine code is the key to getting a quick fix. Fortunately, the mechanics we work with have tons of experience dealing with this type of thing. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Of course but is that possible?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Disconnecting the battery
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Pontiac Mechanic should know about your Pontiac?
Customer: I don't wanna pay if told to tow it to a dealership
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Pontiac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I'm reading online this is a common problem with 2007 torrents at this low mileage n it's something electrical..I don't think it's transmission

Thanks anyways have a good night
Expert:  tims auto repair replied 1 year ago.
i have no TSB on this transmission..i rebuild automatic transmissions everyday..from the way you explain,you have a fluid pressure loss.meanng the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced..though you do need to scan it to get the codes,there is a slim possibility that you may have a bad pressure solenoid,but i doubt this.thanks

Car is driving this morning like nothing is wrong. Only light now on is the check engine. Can the Transmission come n go like that n fix itself at times?
Expert:  tims auto repair replied 1 year ago.
ok,,sense it will drive go get the computer scanned and give me the codes..if the engine light is on,there are codes stored in the cars computer,auto zone and most parts stores will scan it and give you the codes for free.these codes may give a clue to your problem.
