The manual says it is a self protective mechanism and switching into 5 th gear
when it senses the transaxle overheating. And the car slows down when this
happens.
it continues to flash on and off

1 Answer

I would be ready to replace the vehicle. Not so much for the flashing thermostat light, but for the Pontiac torrent aspect. Coupled with the Pontiac Aztec, these were there 2 most problematic vehicles that ultimately led to their demise. The repair is going to be either a temperature sensor, or your tranny/rear end is bad.
