Question about 1988 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Engine cuts out when cold

In cold weather (below 40) the engine will cut out as if the fuel was cut off. Once the engine is fully warmed up it runs ok. Only doesn't it in cold weather and will cut out at any speed. ( I have a standard transmission).
Engine will come back on after 2 or 3 seconds. As the engine warms up the time between cutting out increases.


Thanks

Mike

SOURCE: intermittent clicking sound of turn signal

Short in turnsignal switch will cause this. Next time it happens, put slight upward pressure on turnsignal lever and if sound changes you need a new turnsignal switch

SOURCE: 2000 Maxima GLE engine has trouble maintaining idle in cold temp

The intake plenum gasket is leaking! I have seen this many times before. If you can turn a wrench it will be an easy fix, otherwise take it in and have them replace the gasket. Oh, I almost forgot, the plastic intake manifold needs to be replaced as well. The inserts that holds the manifold in place come loose and that is the root cause of the problem.

SOURCE: intermittent clicking of turn signal

these vehicles have a very common problem that allows the flasher to click even though the signal is not on.. this is an internal directional switch problem and can either be taken apart and cleaned or replaced to correct the problem...

SOURCE: rear hatch will not stay open when weather is cold

Those little shocks are gas charged, thus pressure increases in hot, and decreases in cold. Over the years they tend to seep, or leak a bit, thus, only work good in warm/hot weather. They have replacement ones at autoparts stores, and shouldn't be too expensive.

Engine cuts out only when fully warmed up. Also, starts idling very rough when fully warmed up. Also after fully warmed up it will not restart until it cools down. Definitely temperature sensitive.


two things to check. First, check the EGR valve to see if it is sticking open. this valve is not activated until the engine is warm. This valve could also have a vacuum leak in its diaphragm so check the valve out thoroughly.

Second, there is an engine coolant temp (ECT) sensor that alerts the engine computer as to when the engine is warmed up. If this sensor is faulty and stuck in the full cold mode, it will tell the computer that the engine is cold even when it is fully warmed. The computer will then use the cold engine fuel schedule which is way too much fuel for a warm engine. The engine will run too rich and sputter. In this condition, the computer will schedule too much fuel for a warm start and the engine will flood. That is why you must wait for it too cool down and "match" the faulty sensor.

Note: the ECT has two wires going to it and is dedicated to informing the engine computer. It has nothing to do with the engine temp gauge on the dash board instrument panel. The sender for the dash gauge has only one wire. The two sensors are easily confused.

97 CV - Chk Eng light on - something about oxygen sensor??? BUT - in cold weather - has little to no PWOWER in accellorating - UNLESS I allow the engine to "warm-up" for a while?>???


if the oxygen sensor is bad it will either not send or send the wrong signal to the ecu making the engine think it is running rich on fuel so the ecu cuts back the fuel supply

Shuts off when it is warm outside car runs good when the weather is cool to cold. now that the weather is in the 70's it shuts down, acts like it isnt geting fuel


Hello,

I would also be compelled to suspect the lack of Fuel, towards from the Engine, normally the Carburetor combines fuel and air, into a highly volatile mixture. So when its hot, I would think it evaporates so quickly before it reaches the engine. Try to tighten any pipes, or look for leaks around the Carburetor.

After I drive my jeep some, if it is somewhat warm or not cold weather, my jeep has a hard time starting. It may crank but run a little ways and cut off going down the road.I have had the coil, plugs, plug...


if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

Engine will not idle and run when starting in cold weather


Have a mechanic take a look at your throttle position sensor and engine idle sensor. Make him manually adjust them as opposed to just putting in new ones. It may require that you have to have a higher idle than normal. Your underlying cause is going to be that I am sure you have a lot of miles on your engine.
