My 01 Pontiac Montana is trying to overheat at high power

If your vehicle doesn't actually overheat, just getting hot, I think that's the normal behaviour for these cars. My 03 AWD behaves the same way. When driving uphill, especialy when towing, the temperature rises close to the red marking, but I have never experienced it overheating. I think that the temperature has to rise much over the normal driving temperature to activate the two electric fans.

I have a toyota 1994 hiace van, automatic transmission. it becomes slow even on a slight hill road and i need to accelerate more, is it normal or is there any problem with it? all the gears are well c

Typical of a heavy van that is underpowered. I hear review after review about how weak this thing is going up inclines. I do hear that the motor is virtually bulletproof tho. Enjoy your van, don't expect to fly up hills, but expect to get over 500,000 miles on your motor if you do only the minimium maintence.

Van is smoking, running hot, drives very slow up hills

I would check the thermometer in the front of the block. It is the regulator for the temperature of the antifreeze that gets shot into the block itself. With older vehicles and this time of year many people will be having these radiator/thermometer problems.

1999 Dodge Ram van 1500 no pick up power

I had a similiar problem on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Conversion Van. It ended up being a partial collapse of the catalytic converter which didn't allow adequate exhaust. The problem only showed itself because I could not get over 55 mph going up a small hill.

Losing power going over hill

well i think the piston ring are already loose, causing insufficient air compression leading to lower power especially on uphill tracks. check also for the air-fuel ratio! too much fuel usually is the cause for thick smoke emission; too much air, causes also less power.
