There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.

Can I replace the size 235/60 17 tires on my MOntana SV6 with size 225/60 17 tires?


You can, but the speedometer will be a bit off. It will register slightly faster since the 225/60/17 tire will be a bit shorter and skinnier.

Our 2005 Montana SV6 developed severe engnine knock, with dramatic loss of power, no prior problems that may have lead to this. Our mechanic thinks the oil pump was beginning to fail, and that maybe only...


Is the knock a thudding noise similar to someone pounding on a metal door or is it more of a rattling or chattering noise? If it is the thudding noise there is likely lower end engine damage. If is the chattering or rattling noise it may just be lack of oil to the upper end or head/s of the engine. How far have you driven it like this? If not very far it may have minimal damage that can be repaired by just installing a new oil pump, but if driven over a few miles like this it could be excessive and need new parts+repairs. The oil pump may not be easily changed but extra repairs are definitely going to cost more.

I HAVE A 2006 PONTIAC MONTANA. I HAVE A CLICKING NOISE COMING FROM RIGHT FRONT WHEEL. ALSO VERY SLIGHT PULL TO THE RIGHT. ALSO WITH THE VAN ON THE GROUND IF I PUSH THE TIRE BACK AND FORTH THERE IS SOME...


Do you happen to have plastic rim covers? An auto mechanic suggested that these can rub or oscillate in just the right way to make you think you have a permanent rock stuck in your tire treads. It drove me nuts! But sure enough, I removed the rim coves and there was no noise at all. I ended up putting the same ones back on again with double-sided tape (double layered) along the inside rim of the covers and this stopped the noise for some time. Alas, one winter later, I'm hearing noises again. I've pulled them off again this week, but with my black rims underneath, the van looks like some undercover cop car!

2005 Pontiac SV6 Montana key fob unlocks doors but will not lock


For the sliding doors you need to clean the contacts, there are 6 or 8 on both sides, just wipe them clean as they are probably covered in oil/grease/grime.
