Question about 1993 Plymouth Grand Voyager
I recently had a problem with my 1993 Plymouth Grand voyager shutting off while I was driving. I would be driving down the road, hit a bump and my engine would just shut off. I found out it was the crankshaft sensor. Apparently, it was broken in 3 places and had to be replaced.
We did that. Things were fine for about 3 days, I drove to work, no prob. Came out to leave from work and it wouldn't start. I took it back to the same place, they replaced the computer, things were better for 1 day. Then....wouldn't start. After trying several times every couple hours, it started as if nothing ever happened. It runs excellent once it gets started.
The problem is that it will crank, but not spark. I stuck a screwdriver in the sparkplug cable (wire) to see if I was getting and spark. Nothing. When it does decide to fire, it has a loud humming/whining sound coming from the..(alternator maybe) for the first 10 minutes of running. @ first I thought it was the serpentine belt, but that's not it. I am @ witts end. Frustrated. Any advise on where to look next? Possibly electrical?
I had a similar problem a while back, something you may want to check on is a sensor that check the temperature outside, it sometimes shorts out and tells the computer that it is -100 outside and the computer shuts off the engine and will not spark or do anything as it is trying to protrect your engine...sorry i can't remember the exact name of the sensor but its a faulty one and only costs about 50$ to replace hope this helps
