Question about 2000 Pontiac Montana
We hit a large dog and the van just died and will turn over but wont start
There is not a resetable fuel cut off switch on your vehicle. Ford is the only manufacturer that uses these.
If you do not think you have any fuel pressure that you will need to check for power to the fuel pump. If you hit the dog on the drivers side you may have damaged the wireing harness to the fuel pump.

For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.

There are a few ways to doing this, and it takes time and a few band aids. You can remove the alternator to give you some room to access the rear spark plug with an extension and swivel spark plug socket. You can also get to the plugs from under neath if you have a ramp and long arm, an extension and swivel spark plug socket will help. You may have to use a 2x4 to wedge the engine to give you some room if you have larger arms. The other way is to tilt the engine forward by disconnecting the two top engine mounts. First replace the 3 front plugs and wire one at a time so you don't cross them. After you have changed the front plugs have a friend help you. Make sure the parking brakes are on and disconnect the two top engine mounts, release the parking brakes and let the transmission in park. Push the van forward slowly to tilt the engine forward far enough to give you room with out pushing it to far in to the radiator. Put the parking brakes on again to keep the van from rolling back and place a block of wood behind and in front of the rear wheels. Don't want to lose an arm. Replace the rear plugs with extensions and a swivel spark plug socket. Note, your going to have to replace the spark plug wire since the rear ones are really hard to remove and pulling on then will destroy them, not worth the headache trying to save them. Use platinum plugs so you can get 100.000 miles before you have to change them again so use anti-seize on the plugs so you can remove them again. Good luck and hope this helps, I personally go from under the van.

SOURCE: how to replace a fuel filter
The fuel filter is located on the drivers side about the mid point of the van inside the frame rail. Loosed the fuel cap to relieve some of the pressure in the fuel system. The filter is held in place by 1 nut (which will probably break off when you try to remove it) and held to the fuel lines on each end by a plastic clip. Pull out these plastic clips with needle nose pliers and pull the fuel lines off. It is easier to understand if you already have the new filter in your hand so you have some idea what these plastic clips look like. Like I said, you will get fuel on you as the lines have fuel in them and well as the filter will be full of fuel.
