    mine 99 montana is in the shop for the same reason we found that the coolant fans are not working. Turn the a/c on and see if your coolant fans next to the radiator are coming on. if not chk all fuses if their good then find someone who has great electrical test equip. I may have an answer for good tomorrow.

Check the thermostat. Easy way - feel the upper radiator hose after the motor is up to "normal" temp and engine is running. If the hose isn't very hot, your thermostat is stuck closed, and not allowing the coolant to circulate and cool down the motor. Thermostat should cost around $10-$15, plus an arm and a leg in labor at a shop, or 1/2 - 1 hour of time at home. When a water pump goes bad, it usually will "weep" or leak coolant when the engine is running, and there will be a smell of coolant, as well as a low coolant level. Another post has mentioned the failure of the cooling fan to turn on, which is another item to check. Often times when this is the case, the vehicle will overheat when in slow city traffic, or idling (basically when there is not much air going over the radiator), and won't overheat when your driving down the highway. Good luck!

I have a 2000 pontiac Montana. The problem is with the coolant


We have the same problem. It's an air pocket in the cooling system. The cause can be anywhere from not filling the system all the way or most likely a leak has developed and air has entered into the system as the coolnt level has dropped. The coolant light goes off and on as the air pocket moves around.

Our Montana has a leaky intake gasket, which is the source of the problem. A very common problem with the 3.4. It should go for another 100K plus though, once it is repaired.
