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.

Taurus will not start when pointed uphill but will start when pointed down hill


When you pointed uphill the vehicle or downhill how much fuel do you have in the tank? If is low,surely one reason is the fuel capacity in the tank and it is not enough for the fuel pump pick up to reach.

1986 Pontiac Trans Am Overheating


Its overheating when you go up long hills because the engine is not getting adaquete air in the system. The radiator is angled to get optimal air a certain way. It may overheat but you shouldn't start seeing smoke.
