Question about 2004 Pontiac Montana

2004 Pontiac Montana, can you replace the end fitting on the shift cable or do you have to replace the entire cable? The end fitting that clips onto the ball joint on the transmission shift selector has broken and comes off of the ball joint. Is there an easy repair?

How to replace the shift linkage in the pontiac montana van


On that van, like many other GM front-wheel-drive vehicles, the shift cable goes through a bracket on the transmission to the linkage( the little metal arm). Where the cable connects to the linkage, there is a ball stud. It takes quite a bit of force to disconnect the cable from that. If it became disconnected at that ball without any other outside influence, the shift cable may need to be replaced. You can try pushing the plastic end of the shift cable back on to that ball stud ,it should click into place.
If the ball stud became disconnected from the linkage(little metal arm), the linkage would need to be replaced.
There should be a locknut holding the linkage to the transmission stud right above the range selector switch. If it came loose of there, you may need a new linkage, and to replace that nut

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

Fuel line replacement on 2000 montana


You may be confusing the trans cooling lines with the fuel lines. You may be able to order the pre-shaped lines through an aftermarket provider or through a GM dealer. Although the Pontiac nameplate is gone, a sister vehicle like a Chevorlet should have the same components.

The fittings on the line ends can vary, so if you can not get a pre-shaped replacement, you will need to get tubing stock and bend it yourself. Then you will need special tools to create the proper ends for the additional fittings to secure onto the line.

If you can borrow the tools under the loaner programs at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys, it will help. Sometimes the counter clerk can fit the ends to the tubing for you.

Now if you did really mean the fuel line, the couplers are specialized and different from the other line fittings. First, you need to depressurize the system by using the test tap on the fuelrail to relieve the pressure. It is very similar to a tire valve stem. There can be fitting release tools which you can borrow under the tool loaner program.

The couplers for the fuel are often spring loaded and you need the special tool to release the fitting. Other systems have a plastic clip which is pulled up and away from the fuel line to release. You will see the fitting on the new part.

Where are the grease fittings on the front end on my 2004 Pontiac Montana


many vehicles no longer have grease fittings. This does not remove the need for lube, however. When items fail be sure to install aftermarket parts (like Moog) and they will have grease fittings.
