#1113 of 1493 Looking for a replacement DVD remote control for Potiac Montana
Oct 10, 2005 (2:14 pm)
I'm looking for a replacement DVD remote control for a used 2002 Potiac Montana. I won't necessarily need the factory remote, but any universal remote that works would be fine also. The problem is that I have no idea what the make and model number is for the factory DVD player in the Pontiac Montana entertainment system. If I knew that I'd have half a chance of programming a universal remote control to work the thing or perhaps purchase a replacement remote control on ebay or where ever. Any help?

I had the same problem with my 98 with 100k miles on it. I just replaced the lower intake gasket, had the head machined and it works great. I've put 14000 miles on it since. The parts weren't that expensive, but I bet labor would be.

Listening to your story brings back so many memories. I have a 2000 Pontiac Montana Extended as well. I purchased this vehicle new so there are no previous owners except the dealership ofcourse. Your doors I totally forgot that my van use to do this. My van did this back in 2002-2003 somewhere in there. I took it to the dealership but they had no clue what was going on, because the problem was not present when they were looking for it, eventually the problem just stopped. And the jerking in the van I noticed this recently started in the rear of the van like something was holding the van back when we would be at a complete stop and begin moving, then there would be a little jerk and we would be on our way, this also went undetected when I tried to get a mechanic to look at this. Well now that the warranty is warn out the problem with the jerking is very present and noticable. I just paid 480 to get this problem fixed on 10/14/05, and here we are 10/17/05 the problem is still there. I have a gut feeling that it is a transmission problem. Not fun, I have my luck with vehicles going to trash right as soon as the warranty runs out. When I take my van to the dealership I feel like I am the only person who sees the "pink elephant" and no one else sees what I am talking about. That is only when the warranty is in effect of course. That all changes when the warranty doesnt pose a problem.

Thanks Beccaboo -
Sounds like the exact same thing.
I understand the aluminum thing - and realize that is why we are not rusting, but I haven't come across some of the other rust issues either.
Beccaboo - are you in Ontario and who did you contact at GM, can you give me a number??
Thanks for everyone's help - I am working on this issue and I will let you know the results.

Did you ever get a responsea? Yes, a backyarder can replace the hub. The only special tool you need the axle lug nut socket which can be found at most auto parts stores. I believe it is a 34mm. If you can replace the brakes, this is really not much more difficult. I used a wheel puller to push the axle back through the hub but there wasn't much pressure needed. The hub assembly cost me about $175 at NAPA and the socket was about$10 if I remember correctly. If the brake pads are worn it's a good time to replace them because you have to take the caliper off anyway.

Hi-My 2002 Montana just started doing your problem. I called dealer service manager who never heard of it(in big city-big dealership). Ever get it fixed? Mine started a frying noise mid-dash. The lock receiver is about there.

The drain plug at the bottom of the radiator is really weared, I don't know how to open it, does it need a special tool? I tried with nose plyer but it didn't work. if any body knows please let me know.

As I"> know, the original coolant is good for 150k miles or 240k KM and not number of years
