find it, disassemble it, and clean it with a small parts cleaning brush and some brake cleaner, put it back on with a new gasket and you're good to go~


If the EGR is good, try new plugs and wires. The Pontiac V6 uses a waste spark ignition system which fires two plugs at the same time. Use premium plugs when replacing. Cheap plugs don't last long.
