About Pontiac Montana

In response to strong competition, Pontiac Montana was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Pontiac between 1997 and 2010 as a minivan. Originally introduced to take the place of Pontiac Trans Sport, Montana was once its trim package. And in the 2005 model year, it was renamed to Montana SV6, but due to slow sales, the SV6 was discontinued after the 2006 model year. Though being General Motors' most popular minivans among consumers, the production of Montana was ended after being manufactured for two generations eventually due to the demise of the Pontiac brand. In the North American market, it was replaced by the Chevrolet Orlando, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
The first-generation Pontiac Montana was actually produced from 1999 to 2004 since the Montana became independent from Pontiac Trans Sport until 1999. It came in both short- and long-wheelbase models and could accommodate eight passengers. Montana was available in several trim levels: base, up-level Montana Thunder and Montana GT. During this generation, it was powered by a 3.4 L V6 and this engine sent power through the 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels or four wheels. The more recent Montana arrived for the 2005 model year as Montana SV6. And it got power from a 3.5 L V6 rated at 200 hp and 220 lb-ft of torque, a 3.9 L V6 producing 240 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque and a flex-fuel version of 3.9 L V6. And engines were mated to the 4-speed automatic transmission as well.

Pontiac Montana Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting beefed-up styling, acceptable levels of content and capability, Pontiac Montana is a good minivan but its driving competence, safety features and popular conveniences are not so good. Therefore, if you have a Montana, you had better know about these common problems in advance:
First, according to the data collected from the car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, when the Pontiac Montana reaches about 100,000 miles, engine failure will become its biggest problem, which is actually the indicator of the vehicle bordering on breaking down. Lucky for you, some experienced Montana drivers offer some recognizable symptoms and solutions for you. For example, this issue often starts with strange sounds such as whining, squealing or knocking from the engine, burnt oil odor in the compartment and leaking coolant and oil on the ground; then, due to overheating engine, it performs badly so that it may misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues such as hard starting and inability to start. In fact, once both the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light are activated, it is high time for you to inspect the Montana head gasket, intake manifold gasket, coolant reservoir, spark plug, air filter, oil filter, engine mount and cooling hose.
Second, for Pontiac Montana drivers, transmission issue is another headache. The worse situation is that most Montana owners complained that it happens unexpectedly and brings about serious consequences. In fact, as long as you are careful and alert enough, it is also very easy to diagnose. At first, if you find transmission fluids on the ground and find the indicator not matching the gears, the vehicle starts in another gear and refuses to go into any gear; more serious is that the transmission slippage, surging and difficulty in shifting gear. And the most obvious sign would be the rattling from beneath the vehicle. In most cases, Montana shift cable, transmission assembly, transfer case seal, automatic transmission filter and automatic transmission shifter.
Knowing what parts of your Pontiac Montana need routine maintenance could save you a lot of time and energy. Parts that are made of fragile materials and working harsh working conditions such as windshield wiper, wiper blade, seat belt, fog light, headlight, door handle, emblem, antenna and cabin air filter on your Montana should be on the routine maintenance list.
