Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager
I have a '02 Chrysler Voyager 2.5CRD. The car is very lazy when it starts, i.e. it doesnt start first time everytime. Sometimes when it fails to start i get grey smoke from the exhaust, then when it starts a black smoke comes from the exhaust (black, not blue). Recently the car has had a new battery, all four injectors have been removed, cleaned and reseated, additionally, injector 1 has been replaced. The air filter is in good condition and i use a fuel addittive to help maintain my "new injectors" post overhaul. I am thinking the fuel filter could need replacing (I dont think this was done on the last service), or that i could have a damaged turbo charger hose / exhaust manifold. Please Help!
Do a motor flush before the next oil change.
This will free up the rings and regain some of the lose compression.
If it's the org. engine it will has over 90,000 miles on it.
Did you do the 75,000 timing belt change?
It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.
The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.
It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.
The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.
The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.
Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
