My 2002 van won't start. I get power out the outlets but nowhere else. When the lights worked only the top break light would go on. A couple hours after it died the gauges would click and move but nothing now. Any suggestions? (1 answer)

My gas tank leaks at the inlet pipe (known recall). What year model montanas use the same sized gas tank?I know it (1 answer)

I know it was a recall but because of the mileage I can't get GMC to replace it. I want to get a used tank from a newer Montana but don't know which years would be the same tank but without the defect.

The Fuel Tank Inlet Check Valve Can Crack and Leak

Due to variations in the manufacturing process, or exposure to high heat may lead to a fracture in the tank inlet check valve. Fuel vapors may pass through the fracture and accumulate on the side of the fuel tank. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank. The recall began December 4, 2007. The GM recall number is 06230.

My 2002 Montana's windshield wipers are in the up position when off. Puzzled!!
I have had my Montana since 2002, 125K+ miles. There are some annoyances and warts, I never worry about taking it anywhere in any weather.
2002 Pontiac Montana, 67,000 miles and the air quits. Mechanics estimate $1200-$1500. Will never buy another GM product. I'm a firm believer that vehicles should not have major mechanical problems, no matter the age, with fewer than 100,000 miles.
