Hi Im David thanks for visiting the site. Your vehicle is 11-12 years old and should have had the transmission fluid and filter replaced every 3 years. I would recommend, starting the vehicle, letting it warm up, pulling the dipstick and checking the tranny fluid to make sure its at the full mark, a nice reddish color and doesnt smell burnt

Transmission fluid and level is good
Pontiac Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

ok, then the transmission control module will need to be scanned for fault codes. Transmission faults wont turn on the check engine light normally and must be scanned with a scan tool that has transmission capabilities. a generic coded reader will not pull these codes.
