Question about 2002 Pontiac Montana

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Montana Thunder AWD, I have had the rear end disconected for about a year now and in the last 2 or 3 days my wife and I have been hearing a bumping noise like something is loose, I thought it was the suspenshion or the exhaust was loose or worn out but they seem fine, then I thought it might be the air compresore had come loose, I have also removed the spare tire from under the van years ago so the noise is note coming from there. Do you have any ideas on what it could be. Thank you..

If you have a front wheel drive and not a AWD montana, it could be a bad wheel bearing or a brake shoe that may have broken loose.
Most likely it's going to be a bad rear wheel bearing and it takes less then 2 hours to replace. You can pick up the wheel bearing at Auto Zone or Parts Source for around $170.00 and they have all the instructions for you to do thew job your self if you like.
Tool's you will need: Jack Stand Ratchet with a 1/2 socket and extention Large screw driver 5 pound hammer Lock tight
To check if it is your bearing, try shaking the van from Side to side from the wheel. Listen and feel for any play, the bearing it self is sealed and the bearing my have gone dry.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh you do not have to remove the brakes to do this job and use the screw driver from the top to split the bearing from the brake housing after you hammer it free from the Axle.

SOURCE: rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana

I usually charge a base price on shocks and struts.to 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.

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..

Hi David, What sounds more likely to me is that when you were rear ended a short circuit has caused all the other problems Start by checking the broken wires from the trailer as they may have come into contact with each other and be causing the short circuit. If a short has occurred you'll need to follow the damage all the way through to find out what cables have been damaged and how far the damage has extended and then rectify it. Regards John

I have a 2002 AWD Pontiac Montana and I have loud vibrating noise in the rear end.


OK. You could have a number of issues. Issue one could be cupped tires. cheapest. Issue two could be bearrings. And issue 3 could be a differential problem. Start with the smallest issue and x that out if thats not it keep going until you find it. But i hope that its either cupped tires and if not its probably gonna be a bearring issue.

2003 Rendezvous - AWD lamp + noise & vibration from rear.


When my AWD light comes on is has always been due to uneven pressure in the tires. This is hard to believe but has worked up to now and I have 95K miles on it. It started happening around 60K. Changing the tires is another option. I would have the brakes checked if you have a noise from the rear end.

AWD Disable Warning Light


Reinflate your tires to the proper pressure and this usually goes away. I have had this quite a few times and the dealers will try to talk you into all sorts of problems that they can fix and replace stuff including rear ends for $$$. Do you even go places where all wheel drive is that important? It has never caused a real problem in mine.
