2006 Pontiac Montana Problems
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.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.
2006 Pontiac Montana Questions
Saw a previous question about Montanas hesitating at stop lights. Mine has had "hard starts" at red lights several times. Thought we needed to get the transmission checked until I saw that it was probably the fuel regulator being messed up. So, my other issue is that it seems to run out...
codes say gas cap is the problem, have replaced with both after market and original and still on.

2006 Pontiac Montana Reviews
Every time I have my oil changed (3000 miles) the engine light comes on after approx. 100 miles. I keep taking it back and they do something under the dash to turn it off. I am getting tired of taking it back and would like to know how to do it myself.
This same Montana now, AAmco says it needs a range switch pin...inside the transmission does not know that the car is in park. so they want to rebuild the transmission. Labor. a small piece inside the transmission and it causes the whole transmission to need rebuillding? This is very stressful.
