Temp gauge sending unit


Well it should read cold until the engine warms up, then somewhere in the middle of the gauge.
Normal range is 190 - 220 degrees.

How do i know if its my thermostat going bad on my pontiac montana 1999


If you have a temp gage, it will read higher when car is warmed up. If you have a warning light, it would come on more often. Usually they fail suddenly and the car overheats. If you want to know more, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5929960-s_thermostat . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Pontiac Montana overheating


How do you know the thermostat is ok? If in doubt replace it. Water pumps are a even bigger what if. Did he do a radiator flush? Cooling system flush of the engine? Cooling fans come on at what temp and go off when? Replace the engine temperature sensor? 6 years old is bound to have sensors and such go bad.

No temp gage on montana van. fan starts on start up engine seems cold after it should be hot


Check the heat gauge sending unit. Or "engine coolant temperature sensor" as they call them these days. ECT. It should be somewhere near your thermostat housing. I hope that's the problem. Good luck.

2004 Pontiac Montana blows cold air in defrost


There is a mix damper inside your duct that controls the heat over heater core and ac evaporator that to your floor and one to your defrost. it is probable an electric actuator, that is not functioning properly. If yu can locate it and manually move it, you might have to remove the actuator motor first, you should be able to figure out your problem, I hope this helps! merry Christmas!
