If the van is not overheating and the coolant is full than your sensor is bad

While driving down the road in my 2003 pontiac montana. The change oil light comes on and high temp warning light comes on. When the high temp light comes on the van losses all power.

Check the coolant first. Add as needed. Once full. heat it up in the driveway and check for leaks. 3.4 montana, I would guess the water pump. Change the T stat also.

Van overheating

Pushing coolant into the reservoir is a symptom of a bad head gasket. Have the coolant check for combustion gasses. Easy test.

I have a 200 Pontiac Montana and today it overheated into the red! Not sure why! I also don't have heat unless the RPMs are above 200. My fan don't kick on unless the air is on. 2 months ago I...

With the car running because it reduces the back pressure have someone that knows how to do it remove the cap from the radiator and see if the radiator is full, not the bottle but the radiator itself. If the antifreeze is not moving from the bottle to the radiator it will overheat. Not having heat unless you rev the engine makes me think the radiator is either not circulating the water or it is low.

Hi carl i had pontiac montana m1999 overheating after i travel like 40 km n all the coolant going back to the reservoir

Hello, if you've changed the pump. cap. and t-stat and its overheating still i need to say that just because you replaced those parts doesnt necissarily mean they work. Im mainly talking about the t-stat and cap. was this your first time installing a tstat? They go in a certain way. Make sure you put it in the right direction. Your vehicles engine might require you to purge your coolant system of all air. On some cars air will remain trapped in the area right at the tstat causing it not to work therefore not opening up and no t circulating the coolant. I would start there myself. If thats not the case, next id flush the radiator. I would like to know what the problem symptoms were wich led yoy to replace those parts please.

It is 5 below zero here in Minnesota, I went out to start my 2000 Pontiac Montana van and after about 15 min. she overheated as well as no heat in the van. suggestions?

Sounds like maybe the coolant is low or out. thats the first thing to check. If the coolant was full, then the heater would be roasting hot.

We have a 1999 Pontiac Montana with an unknown trouble code.

P1483=engine cooling system performance
Are you adding coolant each time this light comes on in the coolant reservoir?
if so,you need to find where it is leaking out,
