Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager
THE PROBLEMS STARTED WHEN I WAS DRIVING ON HIGH WAY MY CAR ENGINE JUST STOPPED I TRIED TO START IT I COULD NOT SO I ROADS SIDE MECHANIC FORCED TO START BUT AFTER THAT, I COULD NOT MAKE 30 KM PER HOUR. ON TILL IT PACKED UP COMPLETELY.
SOURCE: Stuck in first gear.
Sounds like transmission may be in "Limp Mode" which occurs when problem detected in transmission, to allow you to get to repair shop and save transmission at same time. Have it diagnosed at dealer or transmission shop & don't drive it any more than needed until then. Transmission replacement gets very expensive so get it in to shop a.s.a.p. so it doesn't get to that extent, and it may turn out to be a faulty sensor or something minor.

It sounds like there could be a problem with the idle air control valve, but if the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes that are stored. Most parts stores will scan the computer for free. Getting the fault codes will help identify the source of the problem. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Had the same problem with my 2004 lx 2.7, code reader said cam position sensor, replaced that $30 @ autozone. 2 screw on front of engine, easy fix and no more jerking

do this, the idle speed control vlave is dirty.
I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
