Question about 2003 Pontiac Montana
Transmission problems aren't enough. as soon as the gauge hits the red zone...it registers to the top of heat within seconds. The transmission is going fast now, and leaking. Then the ticking and whistling..then less heat, now burning and smoking.

Its definitly a bad reading, you would know if your vehicle is overheating, you can usually smell it right away.I would say its your temperature gauge sending unit is defective, check the wires to see if they are well connected or broken. ask a backyard mechanic for assistance.

you can pull the valve covers and inspect the rocker arms, but you may have a bad main or rod bearing. im leaning toward the main bearing being spun, at least.

Before you start your van, and the key's are on accesory. Does your needle move? If it does, your gage is good and you have a bad ground or wire harness. Worst you could have a bad sending unit and that is in the gas tank it self. Start with checking all the wire connection. Good luck.
