I had a 1998 Pontiac Trans sport but salvaged it in Oct 2012. over 100,000 miles on it and found oil in the radiator this time. It was her time. Wow I had never had stalling issues with the van though. That can be scarey!! Have you checked fuel filter and the fuel pump? Almost sounds as if your not getting enough fuel pumped up to the engine. Could be that ... Read More
Did you do the recall? They recalled these vans for that reason. Call your local dealership and you should be able to get it fixed at no cost to you. I have a 1998 Pontiac Trans sport and it still does the same thing. I took it for the recall a long time ago but they wanted for me to come back because they did not have the parts. I just ...

You sound like you know allot more then I do but just wanted to share that after my nephew cracked my filter housing on my 1998 Pontiac Tran-Sport I had to be careful about going through puddles...

Hmmmm, I,m going to see if I have those lil buttons below my cd player when my daughter gets home (She has the van). I have never heard of this. I wonder why they would even have this as an optional thing. You can mute the stereo using the controls on the steering wheel (At least in my van 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport) but whats the point of that being controlled ... Read More

We have a 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport (with the Montana package). We live in a colder climate (Canada) and during the winter when the weather is cold, the display on the stereo works fine. However, when the weather warms up (it was 23C, 75F the other day), or when the dash gets good and warm, the display goes all goofy. The letters and numbers get all jumbled and are flickering and ...

I have a 1998 Pontiac Trans Sport. Recently I have noticed that everytime I come and go I smell coolant, I thought there was coolant possibly blowing out of the hose when I am driving. I see that there is a small puddle of coolant on the top of what I believe to be the thermastat. I am having to add coolant about every other day at this point. I thought ... Read More
I had the same problem on my 1998. The track that the window follows gets bent easily. Also the lining that seals the window got clogged up in the track and caused my problem. You will want to fix this either yourself or a mechanic as a replacement is a dealer only item at $500+ !!!
TO ALL 1998 PONTIAC TRANS SPORT OWNERS RECALL!! I just received a recall notice for my 1998 Trans Sport, problems with transmission. It may not be in park even if it indicates it on the shift. I also read that GM is recalling the Venture and Silhouette for seat problems(Pontiac was not mentioned). However, I will follow up to find out why Pontiac seats were not included. Has anyone else received ... Read More
