My van is a 1999 pontiac montana and it sometimes is jerky and shifts real hard and other times it runs just fine, then the other day it started to back fire and run real bad . then it stopped. It has been jerky on and off for about a year any ideas?

i had the same problem on my 2003 vibe... they replaced the filler tube also and it didn't fix it then they replaced the entire fuel filling system including the venting tupe and located a bee hive honeycomb in the vent line and that was what was causing the problem and have no problems since. hope this helps.

The fix, unfortunately, is inside the fuel tank. You have to have the unit replaced. It's pretty maddening that something like that wouldn't even last 5 years. I have a 63 chev 1/2 ton that the gauge still works, and to my knowledge has never been touched.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for the quick response. I was afraid it might be something like that."
The factory alarm is not to be tampered with as you can reset it but not disconnect it as it's part of the main fuel injection system. Do you have the right key? Just because it turns and cranks doesn't mean it has the right code. the security light off with the key on ut not cranking? If it stays on you do have a security problem. The system can be reset ( if the battery is good, and hot. Trun the key to crank and letgo the security light will but on or blinking . Leave the key on till the light goes out (around 15 minutes. Once it's out turn the key off then back on and the security light will be back on again. again wait till it goes out turn off then on again till the light goes out. Now turn the key off wait a few seconds trun it on and crank the engine. If it starts then it's reset. Sometimes I've had to do this more than three times to get it to reconize the key as the right one. rember a store cut key won't ever work as it doesnt have the (brain in it the the factory key does. Lets say your wrong, about the security system. The fuel pumps go bad like crazy and its thier season to fail. They fail quicker if you $5 the car alot. (runing on empty) Was the check engine light on as it ran the last time it was running? If so the codes need to be retieved and repaired. A scanner will find the security enabled on too.
