Question about 2002 Chrysler Voyager

Smoke from a side pipe

Underneathe my voyager to the right as you look under the car from front to back is a small sized box with a piepe of about 1/2 inch coming out, I assumed it was either for the air con or power steering cooling.

This pipe is lettig out smoke at a similar time to the exhaust and seems to be letting fumes in to the car. Also when I switch the engine off the box and pipe seem to whistle!

Any suggestions would be happily accepted

    I have done these things and they all seem ok, although I am not an expert in any way shape or form, Someone has suggested it could be the power steering cooler pipe that is leting out smoke, but they can't offer any advice on how to solve.

  • Simon Stroud Oct 04, 2008

    Thats sounds plausable, I just wonder if the car is safe to drive or not? Thanks so much for your help.

    Just to let you all know. I have also been advised that this could be a system for the rear heater on the car, which runs from a little unit under the passengerside of the vechile, much the same as a Ford Galaxy. When it hasnt been used for a while and you get a cold spell and use it it can apparently smoke a bit as in effect it is an exhaust pipe, it can also let drops of water out after switch off.



    I dont know how accurate this information is but thought it may be worth adding just incase.

I think this the what they called the breather.
some cars are equipped with a pipe from the top cylinder head cover down to the side of the engine to blow straight down. some are used to go up against the air cleaner.

if it is blowing smoke and it is probably oily now, it would only indicate that there is already oil exhaust in your top cylinder head cover. could be a leaky valve guide seal.

watch your oil level. it may be consuming oil more than it should. could be a ring job too.

tnx 4 using fixya,

    thank you tmeuk,

    it is still safe to drive and as i have told you, please always watch your oil level and keep on adding oil if it is below the safe level.

    tnx again for using fixya,

Leaking exhaust pipes and deflated radiator can be the result of this. Better start with the radiator first and check if its deflated. Also make sure the pipes are tightly mounted and double check any leak.

If you are asking about lifting it out of the engine compartment like an older vehicle, like with an engine hoist, yes....this is the proper way to remove the engine from the Grand Voyager. If you are asking to remove the engine from underneathe.....like from under the frame, no.

Hi Joanne, dont know a big pile about cars but I also have 2003 Voyager and I know that this is caused when your heater is up fully. There should also be a whining noise. There is some system in the Chrysler that uses diesel to assist your heater. This causes this series of events when you stop your car and is nothing to worry about. On the subject of heating, my heater is **** and doesnt seem to be enough to heat car. Hope this is helpful. C Burns

Have you looked at the crank position sensor? It's mounted on the transmission bellhousing, on the right side of the engine near the top. It's a relatively cheap part and is fairly easy to get to.

Wait a minute, when you say "small amount of white smoke from the back of the engine," do you mean under the hood, or out the exhaust pipe?

The leak is coming from under the passenger side door and the pipes caring the coolant to the rear heater is rusted. Can this be replaced easily or closed off so that there is only heat in the front?


On my 1994 Grand Caravan:
I cut (sawed) the rusted pipes at the point of where the rust stopped (plus 1-inch. Take that cut portion of the pipe to any auto parts store and get BULK Rubber Heater Hose. Remember to add on a few inches (2) for each end to fit onto the pipe (on the Van) at each end. Use the pipe you brought to get the correct size (diameter), fitting the pipe snuggly into the rubber hose. Buy 2-adjustable band clamps for the hose, one for each end. Make sure you get the correct size diameter clamps.
Hint: When putting the rubber hose you bought onto the metal pipes on the Van : to slide the hose onto the pipe easier use grease on the outside of the metal pipe and on the inside of the rubber hose you bought (about 2-inches).
Clamp them down at least 1-inch from the end of the cut.
Replacing the metal pipes is more expensive and more labor. I did mine for about $5.00 and was done in 15-minutes, The Rubber Hoses will not rust on you.
Let me know if that helped or if you have addtional problems or questions, feel free to contact me at fixya.com

Lots of smoke is coming out of the pre heater pipe on the side the car ...what is the solution to problem and can it be done at home or to i have to take it to a garage ...any details on this is wellcome...


Hi Emma
all normal, the voyager is fitted with an auxilary heating system, which is supposed to help warm the occupants of the car before the diesel engine actually warms up to take over,even after stopping and turning the engine off, the smoke coming from under the passenger side is the car burning off fuel from the auxilary heater (smells like kerosene) i found this to be unpleasant, especially when i open the doors to get the kids out, everyone is smoked, so i turn the heater off as i approach home, whereby any unspent fuel is burned off before you stop. so there is no need to go to a garage.
hope this has reassured you.
