Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

May 272010

Montana EXT 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,235 miles


2002 Pontiac Montana at 142000km will stall while driving. So far, it has not happened at high speeds, but it has happened in heavy traffic on the highway, with a lot of stop and go traffic, down a slope. It has happened in a parking lot. Happened on a side street.

After it stalls, the car will start up again, no problem, but it is dangerous to stall in the middle of traffic. Mechanic has no clue as he can't reproduce the problem.

I have asked everyone in this forum about their solutions, so far, I haven't heard back. This is a very common problem and we should really post some solid solutions. Anyone?
