If the tranny fluid level is fine then it might be a good idea to check out your PCS(Pressure Control Solenoid) and the connections at the transmission pass-thru connector. These year montana have been known to have tranny probs

2001 montana when I stop at a light or stop sign van will not move until I shut off engine and restart whats up I have only had this for 10 months still paying for it

If the vehicle came with a warranty that is still valid then you need to see if you can get service under that warranty. With all due respect, it is a 14 year old vehicle and , over time, everything goes wrong eventually.
It sounds like an odd issue, maybe something to do with the lockout solenoid...this may come into effect when your rear lights are out, maybe the solenoid is playing up.....could be a transmission fault but the cure makes that a little unlikely.
If there is no warranty take the vehicle to a montana specialist if there is one near your home, they may have detailed knowledge of likely causes

Check level and condition of your transmission fluid. If your transmission fluid is turning brown or if your vehicle has not had a transmission fluid and filter change in 5 years or 50,000 miles, do that right away before you fry your transmission.

How to replace the shift linkage in the pontiac montana van

On that van, like many other GM front-wheel-drive vehicles, the shift cable goes through a bracket on the transmission to the linkage( the little metal arm). Where the cable connects to the linkage, there is a ball stud. It takes quite a bit of force to disconnect the cable from that. If it became disconnected at that ball without any other outside influence, the shift cable may need to be replaced. You can try pushing the plastic end of the shift cable back on to that ball stud ,it should click into place.
If the ball stud became disconnected from the linkage(little metal arm), the linkage would need to be replaced.
There should be a locknut holding the linkage to the transmission stud right above the range selector switch. If it came loose of there, you may need a new linkage, and to replace that nut

2001 montana won,t runs about 2800rpms @70 don,t seen to be going into overdrive on adown hill slope when in overdrive with the shifter it drops the rpms down to 700rpms , and when you put the shifter into...

I think I understand the question. These transmissions are known for the 4th speed shaft shearing off the splines. 4th being overdrive. This won't let it shift into overdrive and also no engine breaking when you are coasting. In other words, when you are coasting your engine rpms will drop down to idle speed. So when in 3rd or drive manual, you do have engine breaking and the rpms fall slowly. The transmission is gonna have to come out to be repaired. I hope this helps.

Same thing happened to me. I took it to the dealer, no choice. They told me that it is the engine. Didn't want to hear that, but I guess I have no choice.
