Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

98 plymouth voyager van

My van has 180K miles but runs extremely well. I went out yesterday and it was hard to start. I went to work and it became harder and harder to start. I changed the PVC and the MAP sensor. It had the same problem 4 years ago and that fixed it. Did not work this time. Hard to start and staggers then dies on acceleration. I do my own maintenance on my cars and have kept it up. There is no check engine and no code reading. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, sorry I forgot to add earlier. It's the 3.0. The PVC threads directly into the manifold. I will check for leaks. Thank very much for your responces!

What is your engine size?
Have you "tuned" it lately - ignition parts (spark plugs, wires, etc...,)

    I assume your engine size is 3.0 liter 6-cylinder or 2.5 liter 4-cylinder.

    Check for vacuum leaks along hoses running near your throttle body or intake.

    The best way to do this is to start the vehicle, and either feel or listen for a suction or hissing noise.

    It may become difficult, once your cooling fan comes on, but be patient. Also, check your PCV grommet (gasket that holds the PCV valve). If this is worn, air will **** in between the grommet and the PCV valve.

Turn signals stopped working now no power


I concur this is a power supply fault of some sort, insure your battery connections are maintained, meaning clean and good of contact, obtain a voltmeter and test the voltage at the battery contacts it should be about 12.5 or higher, turn the key on and try to start, noting the voltage, if it drops below 11 volts, there's your fault if not a poor ground from the battery and the frame of your vehicle may be faulty but boosting your vehicle from another sports battery fault

98 Ply Grand Voyager, 1.4K miles with recurring P0305 code.


You say you changed the cap and rotor so I'm assuming the van has a 3.0L? Possible injector problem on cylinder #5, swap injector with cylinder 1 or 3 and see if miss/dtc moves to that cylinder. You also could have a vaccum leak, although they usually won't come and go. Does the vehicle have a consistent miss or do you just have a check engine light?

They are an interference engine, but you may have dodged a bullet. Once new belt is on, you may want to check, before going too much further.

Last week my van 88 plymouth voyager over heated, now it will not start and others are telling either it has no compression or the timing went or needs to be readjusted, please help


Your nearest mechanic might have a compression tester/meter to verify it. Sometimes it depends on the degree of overheating that will cause damage to the top gasket and piston rings. A warped engine head is likely also.
