Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager
I went to start the van one morning. It started. Ran for about 5 minutes then started to chug and then died. Unable to start it again. After sitting for about 20-30 minutes my husband was able to start it - but only for a minute at most. He fiddled with it that next evening. He lowered the fuel tank and got fuel to go back into the fuel line. It started and ran well (so we thought) and he took it to get more gas in the tank (as it was 1/8 full). The next morning I started the van and it ran for maybe 30 sec - 1 minute and quit. Wouldn't restart. Now it wouldn't start at all... even after sitting a bit. He checked things again under where the tank was. This time the fuel pump wasn't even attempting to work (it had the day before). Now he was working with it again and now the pump is working. He was able to get it to start again for maybe a minute... and then it quits again. He did replace the fuel filter the second time he lowered the fuel tank. Not sure if there is something else we should try... besides hauling it to the mechanic. My husband is pretty savy with mechanics and can replace things... if he knows what is affecting the vehicle from working.
Worse part is the Nissan pickup has done just about the same thing... and so we are without any vehicle now.
Cracked fuel line sucking air bubbles? i have the same problem right now with my 85 ram and am about to replace the rubber lines out of desparation.

It could be that you have water in your fuel. buy a bottle of water removal and gas treatment. empty the fuel tank and try putting in some fresh gas from another gas station.
