Question about 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

Van suddenly shut off one day and will not start

One day I went to go pick up my sister from work. She got in the van, we went to the gas station, got NO! gas, and started home. She works about ten miles from our house. We turned into our subdivision which is hilly. Started up the hill and the van jerks twice and shuts off!! It has been dead for two months. I am mechanicaly inclined but this has me stumped. The fuel pump is okay. The engine will act like it is trying to turn over but nothing. HELP!!!!!

    Not sure how to check for spark, but abut three months before this happened I replaced the ignition coil. About a month before it happened I replaced the spark plugs, plug wires, and changed the oil.

    Checked the timing belt. It is all there and in one piece. The teeth fit perefectly in grove. Thanks for the post, I did not check that but it easily could have been the problem. Please keep the suggestions coming!!

    well first narrow it down... you say the fuel pump works so i'm guessing you can at least hear it.... any spark ?

Check the timing belt,remove the oil cap.....if you, can look at the valve train to see if it's moving when some one turns the key.........if it's not possible to see through the oil cap opening you may have to remove the valve cover if the valve train isn't moving the timing belt is probably broken.
Keep Me Posted! I'll try to help more if that's not the problem.
Thanks for choosing FIX YA!

If you think the pump is not running, you could jumper the relay to make the fuel pump run. The relay is marked as to which terminals are power and which one goes to the pump.

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Oil relatied engine problem...maybe? need help


The clicking sound is from lack of oil or lack of oil pressure. When the lifters pump out then they have too much slack in them and thus the clicking or tapping sound. Sorry to say this, but the engine is either very tired or the oil pump has about had it.
