Customer Question
I have a 2009...

I have a 2009 Pontiac G6. I noticed yesterday while traveling long distance that when accelerating I hear a whinning noise. It seems to ne coming from the front left of the car. My car just turned over a hundred thousand miles. I still have 350 miles until I get home.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

That was

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your G6 yourself? What have you tried so far?

As old as the car. What would a fuel filter have to do with the whinning noise. I am traveling and trying to get home. I still have 8 hours to get home. No I willnot fix it ourself.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

If you turn the a/c off does the noise go away?
