SOURCE: Changing the starter solenoid on a 2000 Pontiac Montana

On your van the solenoid is attached to the starter. If you can get a solenoid separate (i don't know if you can) then you will need to take the starter off and remove the solenoid (2 screws holding it on) and the wires (on red and one black i believe) pay attention to which wire goes where because you don't want to reverse it on the new solenoid.

The gear shift on my Pontiac Montana will not engage the gears it just moves freely.

Sounds like the linkage may have came off either the trans or the shifter.

I am trying to take the lower control arm on the passenger side of a 98 transport. The lower ball joint is being stubborn. I tried ball joint remover tool and not much room to work with and still dont

Lower Control Arm

The lower control arm is a two-piece welded unit with a riveted ball joint. A conventional rubber bushing is used for the rear lower control arm pivot. The front lower control arm bushing is mounted vertically.


Some special tools are required to perform this operation including, a front hub spindle removal tool and a suitable ball joint separator tool.

WARNING Do not hammer or pry ball joint from knuckle. Failure to use recommended tools may cause damage to the ball joint and seal.
See Figure 1

Fig. Fig. 1: Exploded view of the control arm-to-frame mounting

  1. Raise the vehicle and suitably support by the frame allowing the control arms to hang free.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the steering gear outer tie rod from the steering knuckle.
  4. Remove the stabilizer shaft link from the control arm.
  5. Remove the front drive axle shaft nut and washer.
  6. Use a suitable front hub spindle removal tool to Push the axle splines back out of the front wheel drive shaft bearing.
  7. Remove the drive axle from the transaxle.

Drive axle joint seal protectors should be used anytime service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this could result in joint or seal failure.
  1. Place a modified inner drive joint seal protector on the drive axle joints.
  2. If equipped, remove the ABS wheel speed sensor jumper harness.
  3. Remove and discard the cotter pin, then loosen the nut from the ball stud.
  4. Remove the pinch bolt and the control arm mounting bolts, then remove the control arm from the vehicle.

Shift cable won't stay attached to transmission

As far as the shifter cable not staying attached to the ******, (AT), My solution was to shave the plastic end thinner so it will go further on the shifter rod. This will allow room for a washer and cotter pin to be attached to the rod. (holding the shifter cable in place. It's easier to remove the shifter arm as you will need to drill a small hole for the cotter pin. This is the cheapest solution that works. The shifter cable is over $40 and a headache to install. Hope this helps.

How to replace the passenger control arm on the 2006 suzuki grand vitara

Most front ends are set up basically the same way.First raise and support your front end and remove the tire.Both the upper and lower should look about the same.If you look at the control arm you will have an upper and lower ball joint and a tie rod end bolted to the steering knuckle.Remove the bolt on the tie rod end and use a ball joint separate to remove the tie rod end.Then remove the ball joint from the steering knuckle with your separator.Depending on which control arm it is if its the upper you will also have to remove the brake hose out of the way to remove the upper control arm.Once that's done you will see 2 bolts that hold the control arms to the frame remove these bolts and your control arm will come off,You might have to pry them a little bit to get them out.You also want to have something handy to block up your steering knuckle until your ready to put it back together.It wouldn't hurt to have a piece of wire just in case you need to tie something in place.And be sure you grease everything with a high pressure grease.

2004 Pontiac Montana. The wipers start but then stop after moving just a little and then go back down. They do not come up all the way.

Hello Sebpgood.

O yes, the notorious GM van wiper problem.
The clutch mechanism on the wiper motors are difficult to say the least.
The spline on the shaft from the wiper motor may have slipped putting the wiper motor to wiper transmission out of synchronization.
These are tricky to get back in time.
Also there is a tab on the crank arm designed to catch the clutch that wears and/or bends down and will not allow proper operation.
Most of the time I replace the crank arm assembly as they are prone to wear.
Check all the parts on the wiper transmission for siezed pivots and bent arms.
I hope this helps you towards a repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

My 03'Pontiac Montana quit shifting. The arm moves freely but nothing happens. I was told by a friend that a coupler connected to my shift arm was broken. how do I fix this coupler?

sounds like you need a new shift cable most likely- can you hear like a rachet noise when shifting if not proberly cable you need two people one in car shifting linkage with car off the other looking at trans linkage below brake master cylinder to see if linkage moves if linkage moves you have internal trans problem

I have a stick shift car. the shifter came loose today. i took apart the console, and found where the shifter attached to a rod that lets it change gears. but, i can't figure out how to reattach it. it...

What you speak of is called a hiem joint. There has to be a sleeve or ring still on the trans rod the holds the ball in the socket. Look on the shift rod and see is it still there. If yes, pop the ball back in the socket and the ring back in on the ball, Find out what holds the ring in against the ball and fix that.

Trying to remove control arm for a pontaic G6 2006

I had same problem with my 2006 G6 GTP 3.9 Engine. The front control arm pivot bolt would come out only so far and then hit the passenger side motor mount. I had to loosen the two (2) motor mount nuts from below, and then raise the engine and trans so that the pivot bolt could be moved forward enough to pull clear from the control arm. The control arm drops down, so that the sway bar does not have to be loosened or removed. Expensive part !! (lower control arm with ball joint), just to replace a failed ball joint. By the way, I have the "official" GM ZP/ G6 service manual, and it mentions Nothing about the motor mount interference problem. But, without clearing for that motor mount, that front bolt cannot be removed. (I don't have any experience with the 4 Cylinder G6 model, so can't help you there.)
