Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks

My 2002 Pontiac Montana died while driving down street at 25mph. Started again two times but died in less than half a block. What could this be? Gas gauge which is part of fuel pump has not worked in quite some time.

Hi Susan:
The first thing that I would check would be to see if it is out of gas.

SOURCE: Gas Gauge not working

when the fuel pump was installed the gas tank sending unit was either jammed when put back in the tank, is defective, or the sending unit was no reconnected.

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge Stuck on Full 98 Pontiac Montana

When gauge is pegged at full, usually means a bad ground. Check wires at fuel tank, wiggle around, maybe one came off. The bad news is it is hard to get to without removing the tank. Sometimes you can reach arm in and get to them. Also check body ground at read of van.

SOURCE: I have a 1985 Chevy C/30 pick-up with a 7.4L 454.

85 with TBI only needs 13lbs of fuel pressure. verify that the fuel filter is clean. there is no easy way to ck fuel pressure, special adapters are needed, I dont have info here at home but there should be a relay for the pump, on the firewall and the oil pressure switch also powers the pump. did you replace the pump trying to fix this problem or did you just mention it to help troubleshoot the problem? verify that the fuel pump wiring has a good ground, should have been a eyelet that bolted to the frame..when you initially turn the key on, you should hera the fuel pump power up for 2 seconds, then go off, after the engine starts, the power for the pump goes through the oil pressure switch.

SOURCE: gas gauge

Remove the dash and remove the gas gauge pod - look for burnt circuits as this is the easiest part of the equation. Unless you hit something with the gas tank [ if you did - there will be a large dent in the tank] the problem mathematically lies in the gauge/wiring and not the tank/gauge.

run the fault codes and look for faulty cam/ crank position sensor as this is indicated by the backfire/hard start and lower idle RPM. Check that battery terminals are clean and tight..

Lissa,
Hate to deliver the bad news, but it doesn't sound good... One of the simple things you can do is to check the oil and see what it looks like, if it is foamy, you got water in to the oil and a major expense. the nest woudl be to have a compression check done, it shouldn't take a good mechanic but a half hour to diagnose and estimate.
Best regards,

2002 Montana, A/C not cooling. blows hot air.


Sounds like a gas leak..
Most efficient way to handle that is - go to a ac specialist.. They will put more gas in with a die.. Then a week later they will check it again and a floresant light will spot the die - should there be any leaks.. And that way you will know exactly what you are dealing with..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

2002 Pontiac Montana, I ran out of gas. Put in about 6-7 gal. Now it will not start up. Please help.


TRY TURNING THE KEY ON AND OFF WHILE LISTENING TO THE HUM OF THE FUEL PUMP. THIS WILL CYCLE THE FUEL PUMP ON TO PRESSURIZE THE FUEL LINES. IF YOU DON'T HEAR THE FUEL PUMP KICKING ON THEM CHECK THE FUSE FOR IT, UNDER THE HOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS WITH YOUR DILEMMA. LET ME KNOW. BEST OF LUCK
