20 Most Recent 2002 Pontiac Montana Questions & Answers


If the steering is working fine, otherwise, I don't think you should have to replace the rack. It's possible the leak is higher up and just happens to be running down to that point and dripping off the nut. I don't know much about this, but what I would do is jack up the front, go under and clean everything off really well, make sure you have lots of light so you can see everything up in there. Start engine, crank the wheel back and forth a bit, go under and see if the leak is coming from higher up. If you confirm that it's coming from the nut then put a pan underneath and pull the nut. Hopefully, if there's a bad seal there, you should be able to see it.
Good luck to you.

i have the wiring diagram for the starting circuit if you would like it give me your e-mail and i will send it to you, i will try to post it but fixya has a very limeted amount of space to post piictures.

but here is the path to the purpal wire at the starter from battery ( red wire ) to the power distribution box to fuse # 1 ( main fuse ) from fues #1 to ignation switch ( red wire ) from ignation switch ( yellow wire ) to the pcm/crank fuse in the right side fuse box in right front door opening, from pcm/crank fuse to PCM ( purpal wire ) termanal #23, from PCM termanal # 76 to starter relay ( yellow/black wire ), this is the path for the control circuit for the starter relay.

fuesabe link at starter large post to starter relay ( red wire )

PCM/ABS fuse ( 10 amp )in the right side fuse box at the door opening at the right side of the dash from the PCM/ABS fuse to neutral safety switch ( pink wire ) ( neutral safety switch is located on the transmission ) from the neutral safety switch to the starter relay ( orange/black wire ).

this is the path for the starter ignation switch sinds signal to PVM pcm sends signal to starter relay, if the neutral safety switch is closed then the starter relay closes and send power from the red wire at the relay to the starter purpal wire.

The AC may stop working due to a refrigerant leak from the condenser - this is not uncommon in Montanas built between 2001 and 2003. GM has developed and updated condenser and mounting bracket to help prevent the replacement condenser from failing in the same manner.

I'm not sure why the dye isn't showing.

Usual cost of the fix is around $550.

The nut that holds it to the wiper pivot is either loose or the pivot is stripped, try tightening the nut first.

Depends on the type of OEM radio you had in the system before the replacement. Your car may have an auxiliary amplifier between the radio and the speakers, and if so, you may have to bypass it. In any case, have a look at the original wiring diagram (Alldatadiy.com will probably help) and check your wiring again.

You need to make sure the lines going to the shocks are still connected to the compressor...

I would start with the cheapest fix first. Change the air filter and then replace the coolant temp sensor. Then perform another ODBII scan. Let the scan be your guide to any repairs to avoid buying parts you don't need.

  1. Recover the refrigerant from the A/C system.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove the cooling fans with the cooling fan shroud.
    NOTE Use the special tool J38185 to gently release tension on the hose clamp until the hose clamp lock feature engages allowing removal of the hose.

Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
