Pontiac Montana QuestionsRefine by vehicle
we had the engine replace, because after rewiring it was having problems starting, so we started off by replacing the battery, starter, alternator, then the low oil pressure light came on .. no compression so we replace the engine, now the security light comes on. this was the problem prior to replacing those listed parts after we had a mechanic do a full rewiring, which was done first, then replaced the engine now the car starts, wont start sometimes and then start, but cannot be driven due to the security light. could it be a cross of wiring? or is there a way we can reset the security system? it can be started manually from the engine but it wont start the gas pump.
Hello, my Montana would not start, so I took it to the repair shop and it was determined that it needed a new starter and a new battery. This solved the problem, however, all audio is lost. The chimes don't work (e.g. open door), and the radio audio is off. The radio looks like it works (I can see the radio light on, and the station names and song names are displayed), however, there is no sound. I hope you can help me solve this problem.
I have experienced intermittant "sticking" of the accellerator pedal on my 2000 Pontiac Montana Van. This started recently at 120,000 mi. + and is rather spasmodic with change in temperature. Seems more prevelant in warmer temp. Would this indicate cable or hardware problem? What would be the potential parts needed and estimated repair cost?

Whistling noise after cold start while driving or idling. Stopped after engine warmed up.
the heater is not workin, there is a burning smell coming from under the hood. the van is running sluggish and there is water getting in the oil. there is smoke coming out of the back end that smells awful. Is it time to push this van to a junk yard or can it be fixed?
the oil fill cap on the bottom of it has like a white foam and the dip stick is about 4 inches higher than it should be. would this be the intake manifold gaskets? if so how much does it cost to have this fixed at a shop?

My 2005 Montana Transmission hesitates from 1st to 2nd
The rear rotor on this montana depends on the type of suspension. How do I determine the suspension to select the correct rear rotor??
THE MECHANIC STATES THERE S NOT COMPRESSION IN THE ENGINE AND THE ENGINE MAY HAVE BLOWN A ROD. THIS VEHICLE HAD A SOUND ENGINE AND TRANNY PRIOR TO THE REWIRING AND ALL THE REPLACEMENTS.
whou to change sprkplugs I have a missfire on #4
The mechanic has told me that the intake gasket needs replacing and the engine cleaned out because coolant has gotten mixed in. He also recommended a metal gasket, because the old one was plastic and that a plastic one will eventually fail again and I will have the same problem again. I understand the need for metal over a platic one, but is cleaning the engine out necessary and should it cost $1,000 or more as he told me it might.
My 1999 Pontiac Montana is overheating. You can't even go a mile without the temperature gage going up and then it will go backdown. The engine is running sluggish. I put some seal block in and it is leaking antifreeze from somewhere. The fan seems to be coming on but I don't know what the problem is. The thermostat was replaced 5 months ago and also the dashboard has started cracking. What could be causing all this to happen?
Have had problems with engine temperature. Had intake manifold gasket replaced, but the temperature guage still shows ovrheating issue when stopped in traffic or at red light. Emptied and flushed radiator, and now the temperature skyrockets as soon as I start to drive.
During oil changes the oil looks milky and the temperature gadge keeps running up. The temperature goes up and then goes back up. Then if you drive it ,it runs sluggish.
The power windows, power locks and rear window wiper all stopped working at the same time. We have checked the fuses, all are good. Please offer some help as to what might be wrong and how to repair it. Thank you very much.
