RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2006 Pontiac Montana based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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 rear light socket plate may fail causing a brake light or other rear light to stop working.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.
The 2005-2006 Pontiac Montana is known to have issues with the EVAP system, a part of your emission control system.
To correct the issue, the EVAP canister vent valve, solenoid, and wiring must be inspected. The most common fix is replacement of the wiring connector or replacement of the vent valve assembly.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
Corrosion at the fuel tank to body harness may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate or a crank no start condition. This corrosion issue is most commonly caused by a water leak inside the vehicle. Any damaged wiring or connectors will require replacement.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
