2002 Pontiac Montana Problems
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

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.
