Hello i have a 2001 pontica montana. I keep getting a code 420. I have change the cat twice and the plugs as well. What else it there to do?

Spark plugs or 02 sensors? The rear 02 sensor is what sets this code. The numbers it produces, how fast or how slow they come is how it tells the ECM that the catalytic converter is getting worn out. The sensors it self can be bad and cause the same code as a bad converter. Just a note bosch 02 sensors are not very good, I have replace 2 and 3 in a row that where new. Go with OEM or denso.

I took my 2000 pontiac montana to auto zone on saturday and they ran there little test on it cause the light was on it came up with both o2 sencers were bad but i have changed the back one twice last month...

When you had one go bad, it fixed the problem for a short while. Now both they say are bad. 02 sensors last a long time if the engine has regular maintenance. Most likely your catalytic converter is bad. This will cause, at first the rear 02 to show bad readings setting a code. And as the converter progresses to get worse, it will make both 02 sensors give bad readings, thus setting off the codes.

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s

I usually charge a base price on shocks and change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.
