Question about 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I can only see one of the starter bolts...

I have a 1999 V-6 3.3 Grand Voyager. I've been under it to look at the starter, but I can only see one of the bolts. Is there any other hardware that needs to be removed to get to the starter bolts?

    I ended up figuring it out my self... I don't know if it was by the book, but I was able to handle it much easier.
    1st I removed the air filter components (this was 2 separate pieces) Oh, yah... remove the negative
    cable before you get started.

    2nd I removed the exhaust manifold and its heat shield

    3rd This is probably optional.. I removed a large electrical plug (I think to transition) that was in
    the way.

    4th Now I could see there was only 2 bolts, I was able to reach them, and once the starter was out
    I could easily negotiate the gasket or spacer that was there. (note: make sure it is in the correct
    way, I put it in wrong the first time and the gears bend it up on one side. "This side up" is a
    good thing to look for)

    5th Before doing any of this, do as much diagnostic checking you can before you decide what the
    problem is. I had my starter checked before purchase of the new one & it was fine, I removed
    as much oil leakage as I could from the electrical connections on it... But after taking it apart 3
    times, I figured out it was the relay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take my advice, If your not having a
    professional do the work, save your self some time and $$$$$, do as much diagnostic as you
    can to pinpoint the actual problem.

There shouldn't be any hardware to remove to get to the starter bolts. You should try removing the bolt you can see and see if the starter comes off. There is a small chance the other bolt is broken. It may be in a spot you can't see as well. You may have to try to feel around the starter in places you can't see and feel for a bolt.

1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager with 3.3 liter engine. I remove two 10 mm bolts holding what is labeled an air filter housing, but can seem to open the housing box unit then to access the air filer and...


Those two 10mm bolts and the two hose clamps (one on the throttle body and one under the "box") hold the upper air box in place. Remove this box and you will see the portion of the air cleaner that holds the air filter. You must remove another 10 mm bolt in order to lift the portion that contains the air filter out. Good luck Dano

1999 grand voyager le how do i replace fuel filter


Hello,

To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
  1. Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
  2. Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
  3. Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
  4. Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
  5. Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
  6. Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
  7. Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
  8. Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
  9. Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
  10. 1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

What side should I jack up to change a 2000 grand voyager starter 3.3 liter


The starter is buried on the back side of the motor. I would recommend borrowing some ramps and lifting the whole front end. If you can only raise one side the right side might give you better access to the solenoid connections and starter bolts.

R&R Starter 1999 Plymouth Voyager w/3.3 V6


The likely problem is the contacts in the solenoid on the side of the starter. Does the solenoid click when trying to start the car? Disconnect one battery cable before doing anything with it. I fixed mine by removing the end of the solenoid case and building up the badly eroded input terminal bolt head with silver solder--worked great. You have to work under the car to get to these parts--use jack stands for safety.

Can not get to the bolt under the wheel speed sensor.


Should just have to unbolt the 3 or 4 bolts holding it in the spindle. No special tools are required. You should be able to get to them with a wrench if you have to. Plus you do have to undo the nut holding the axle in.

Installing a starter on a 1999 Plymouth


jack up the front of the van support it on jack stands blck the rear wheels it's better to do it on level ground:) disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the two starter bolts holdind the starter up be carefull when removing the starter as it can be a little heavy when dropping it down also make a note if there are any shims in between the starter and engine to replace them whren putting it back together. also make sure you note the wiring connections so the can be replaced in the same order they are removed. it's basically like a puzzle:) the starter is located right next to the transaxle good luck:)
