Question about 2001 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Montana and when we turn left we fell a shaking like a bad wheel. Also when we accelerate. We have it checked, just had hubs and bearins replaced and complete brake job. Also shakes when the tractions sytem comes on on a wet road. Could it be a CVC joint?

SOURCE: my 1996 pontaic grandam shakes when i brake

Sounds like warped front disc brake rotors and/or out of round rear drums. Some also had rear disc brakes also. Have brakes inspected. Have steering and suspension looked at also.Loose steering or suspension wont cause a vibration but will exaggerate bad brakes or tires.Always be sure your vehicle can stop and steer safely! Hope this helps. Please rate me.

SOURCE: abs and traction control light faults after a brake job. 2005 Pontiac grand prix

You have a bad sensor at one of the tires that need replacing that operates ABS and traction control. If you take it in to a shop it will run $130 but they can find which sensor is causing the problem. But if you do it you might have to replace all 4 sensors to make sure you got the right one. Every hard to diagnoses. Its better for the shop cause they can get electrical read outs for each sensor.

SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Montana - what is a misfire #5?

Without your actual trouble code, I am assuming that you are have a misfire on cylinder # 5. The computer cannot really tell what is causing the misfire only that cyl 5 is not putting out full power. If it misfires when cold then smooths out as it warms up, I would say it is probably an injector that is sticky, as it warms up it starts working properly.

My 2003 impala passenger wheel stops turning when I turn all the way to the right ,and vibrating when accelerating


Sounds like the wheel bearing is shot. If so, you need a new wheel hub with the sealed internal wheel bearing.
Raise the tire off the ground. If you can see play on the whole wheel when you shake it back and forth, that would be a bad wheel bearing.

05 Montana. Will a bad left front hub cause vehicle to pull hard to left,???


YES
it will be running and jamming on the disc brake rotor and stopping that wheel from turning freely
it will be affecting wheel alignment as well

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

How do you install a front wheel bearing on a 2001 Pont Montana


jack the vehicle up remove the wheel
remove the brake caliper bottom bolt 15mm. lift the caliper up and slide the caliper pin out
remove the caliper housing bracket 2 - 15mm. bolts
remove the brake rotor
remove the drive axle nut 1 5/16
the remove the hub bearing bolts 3- 13mm. they are in behind (best to use a 13mm flex socket)
disconnect the ABS harness
use a hammer and hit the hub bearing flage (it maybe corroded )
now the hub bearing is out clean the steering knuckle with sandpaper to remove corrosion
install the hub bearing (make sure the ABS harness is in the right position)
and reassemble

2001 4 x 4 tacoma front wheel fell off. Looks


The drive shaft is inserted into a splined hub. The hub has a bearing that is pressed in, and that may have been the cause.
Very rare. Was there any grinding noise before it fell off ?

After my 2001 Eddie Bauer Expedition warms up...


well i have heard that the front hubs are known to go bad in the 4x4 pickups,which should be the same parts as an Expedition,there may be metal dust on the ABS sensor or the flywheel it reads off from,thats if the hub and or bearings are bad.Jack it up with a jack under the lower control arm just behind the wheel and grab the wheel at the top and bottom and see if there is any movement,that should help explain if the hub is bad if there is alot of movement
