SOURCE: 2000 ISUZU TROOPER WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. CHECK

If the fluid is up -
it could be a vacume loss or the shifting module..
The shifting module is what tells it to shift - and it is controled by vacume pressure..

SOURCE: Timing off on Pontiac Montana wipers

On top of the window motor there is a timing cam -- there is a little tab on the bottom that is most likely broken or bent. You need to replace the cam.

SOURCE: 2000 pontiac montana wont go into 4th gear

I would be interested in knowing if the thermostat is sticking open. Most Overdrives are prevented from engaging until the coolant temperature is over 177 degress F. Check you temp gauge...does it read Low? If so, change the t'stat, and see if that fixes your problem, or, if that does not help, get a complete transmission FLUSH, BEFORE you go out and get a rebuild. You just might save a ton of money.

no the transmission shift cable is streached and needs to be adjusted. you should be able to shift the van to neutral and start it in that gear. just watch when you park because it will roll away. use parking brake. if it doent start in neutral then your cable may be snaped and not noving the gear selector on trans at all

2000 Pontiac Montana . Goes into gear hard when it shifts. Has 140000 miles on it.


It sounds like the pressure control solenoid inside the transmission. With that many miles I would suggest going ahead and rebuilding it. You need to remove the transmission from the van anyway to replace the solenoid. I have rebuild several of these, be sure to put in a shift kit, it makes a big difference. I've rebuilt them before and wasn't happy with the way it shifted, so I pull it back out, put in the kit and that did the trick. So, needless to say, I always put the kit in the first time. Although, I do know a guy that changed his filter and added some Lucus oil treatment for the transmission to the new oil, and he says he hasn't had that problem sence........makes me wonder.

How do i adjust the tranmission shifter cable on 2000 pontiac montana?


under the hood by the shift tower on the transmission. You need to remove the air filter box. If it's just a little off you can adjust the park neutral safety switch. To do this you loosen the 2 13 mm bolts and it will turn

I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana and the code states I need to change the shift solenoid where is this found and is it hard to change? Thanks


Yes it is hard to change. It is in the side cover of the transmission. The transmission will need to be removed to replace it.
