You need to remove the oil pressure sender by the oil filter and put a manual gauge in to see what your oil pressure actually is. The oil pump is fairly easy to replace, just drain out the oil and remove the starter. You can get to the oil pan bolts and then lower the pan. The oil pump is held onto the rear main bearing cap by one bolt. Remove it and lower it keeping in mind that the oil pump drive shaft will come out with it. Make sure the shaft hasn't rounded off, if its worn, replace it.

While driving down the road in my 2003 pontiac montana. The change oil light comes on and high temp warning light comes on. When the high temp light comes on the van losses all power.


Check the coolant first. Add as needed. Once full. heat it up in the driveway and check for leaks. 3.4 montana, I would guess the water pump. Change the T stat also.

I just replaced the fuel pump in my 2002 Pontiac Montana and I can hear the fuel pump working but the van still will not start. What else could be causing it?


The fuel pump may not have been the problem? You are not getting a spark (ignition) and/or firing due to timing, retardation, plug gaps need setting and cleaning, plug wires may be bad as insulation may crack, peel, split, or water and oil got on the contacts. The there is FLOODING is too much fuel prevents Air from entering the chambers. So many reasons, it needs a technician with test equipment to search for the sources.

How do you know if you need to change a fuel filter in a 2001 pontiac montana or if the injectors are bad? If i can heard my fuel pump running does it mean it's still good?


UR OWNERS MANUAL WILL LET U KNOW. ALSO, IF U EXPERIENCE STALLING OR HARD START PROBLEMS.
INJECTOR TROUBLES ARE GENERALLY POOR MILEAGE, MISFIRING, HARD STARTING.
MANY IN TANK FUEL PUMPS U CAN HEAR WORKING, GENERALLY WHEN U TURN TO KEY ON. ONCE U HAVE THE MOTOR RUNNING, U MAY NOT HEAR THE PUMP RUNNING. IF U DO, I WOULD HAVE IT LOOKED AT.

Pontiac montana 2005 how do you reset the change oil light.


Pontiac Montana, 2005
With the ignition key in RUN but engine off, repeatedly push the trip reset button until OIL is displayed on the driver info center. Once OIL is displayed, push and hold the reset button for five seconds. The number will disappear and be replaced by 100% of oil life remaining. The percentage will return to 100 and oil life indicator will be reset. Repeat steps if not reset to 100.
Good luck

Go back to where they changed it. The fuel level sensor is inside the tank. Either they didn't plug it in or there is a bad connection.
