Customer Question
Hi Chris I have...

Hi Chris I have a 2008 Montana and while I am accelerating up to speed on the HWY it feels as if the engine is misfiring once at set speed no problem

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

The fuel filter was my first guess I will have that checked not sure if the transmission was ever worked on I bought it second hand

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montana yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I have my own mechanic I am just researching on my own the van will be going in tomorrow
