      Raise the hood to observe the belt condition and especially the belt path - is the belt straight / aligned across all the pulleys in the routing?

      Does the squeal happen with certain conditions, like during engine acceleration?

      My info shows three 02 sensors, two before the cat and one after. It says they are heated. The heated 02 sensor has four wires, The non-heated has two wires.

      Napa usually has quality parts. The parts from discount auto stores may work just fine?

      My parts book didn't show 07 Montana did show 06. The fuel filter shows to be part of fuel pump module.

    Humming noise from rear wheels on all types of road surfaces
    had tires rotated and balanced and 4 wheel alignment.

      Most likely, the noises you are hearing are related to a dry or worn rear hub wheel bearing. Raise the rear wheels off the ground - suspend with jack stands. Then, slowly rotate by hand - each of the rear wheels and listen closely at the center for any scraping or grinding / abnormal noises. If any noise is heard, then you have a dry or worn wheel / hub bearing.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the rear axle hub bearing from around $42.00 each for your vehicle. Be sure to replace both sides (left and right) at the same time due to mileage / age / wear considerations. Keep in mind, these are only the parts prices - the labor to install will be additional cost. Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the Auto MD website for the specific steps to install.

    IT seems since it has gotten very hot here the van makes a loud (it seems loud inside) humming/vibrating sounds.
    IT seems to happen after the car has been driven for a distance of more than maybe 10 miles in the heat I think. It presents when coming to a slow cruise and sometimes when accelerating from a stop. It is not brake related. I have 106K miles. I had it checked 2 ...

      These vehicles are notorious for wheel hub issues. Most the time the noise of a hub is present at all times. However I have seen weird noises developed as the bearing heats up. These vehicles also have tire issues if they Are not rotated frequently. Tires start to cup or have flat spots. These noises are usually are present at all times. Do you have a hitch on this vehicle. If so make sure that the hitch is not grounding out on muffler or tail pipe hangers. Check for play in rear hubs and also check ebrake shoes. They sit on inside of rotor drum. They call this drum in hat rotor. Just make sure shoes are not all busted up inside.

    The A/C compressor clutch does not kick in. There is no cold air coming out of the vents.
    the pressure on the low side is in the red on the gauge, so I couldn't attempt to add R134
