I have a 2007 Montana van that needs a new transmission.

Customer Question
Hi, I have a 2007...
Hi, I have a 2007 Montana van that needs a new transmission. Will one from a 2009 Pontiac Montana work? Both have the same engine. I just want to make sure it will fit before going ahead with the swap.

And what transmission are you wanting to use? Sorry for the typo, that should have read they did not make the montana after 07.

From a 2009 Pontiac Montana SV6. It may because I am in Canada perhaps they were sold longer here under the Pontiac name.
Pontiac Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 11 months ago

That may be, as they went to the torant in 07. From what I can see they did not change the transmissions in those years, and the internal electrical parts are the same, so I would have to say yes you can swap them out with out any trouble.

The torrent is a different vehicle altogether.

I understand that. Here in the us that is what replaced the montana. I did look up the data form your van based on the fact you where in Canada.
