I just like throwing out useless suggestions.
No problem bud just like to yank your chain as well.

Tom... I will say I have driven several of the Transports, and then the newer Montannas... I like them all.. some had a Goos handling suspension... I would keep the Van as I could work on it... I'd throw a multitude of not so nice words at it, but in the end I could fix it...

A cousin just piced up a Montanna SV6, last year of production...I actually think it ended early on.. Its a really nice Van... And if I had to have a van, even a little under powered... I'd rather have the Montanna/SV6 Over most of the Market, simply because I am a die hard pontiac person...

For everyone out there... Make absolutely sure if you have a 3400 V6... Get the LIM gaskets replaced well before 100k.... In most cases I feel 80k should be the mark

...Or in the case of my mom'* Alero, replace them at 37,000 miles. 37K is when I spotted them oozing. Dealer replaced them for free.
