Some circuits that use a variable resistor like the potentiometer type use a circuit to smooth out their reading, some manufacturers call it a anti-slosh module. It might be that on yours, the instruments could need the attention this time. you can call and describe your issue to the service advisor at your GM dealer for an idea of what causes it on a pontiac. and what they can do about it.
