Question about 1995 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Lag in acceleration, jerking, and no heat from the heater.

The 1995 Plymouth Voyager we have had both the a/c and timing chain/waterpump combo fixed. For the longest time the heater would not get very hot, only very slightly warm if there was any temperature at all. After the waterpump busted and broke the car down by messing up the timing chain, both were replaced and it worked fine. After a couple weeks, the car would hesitate and **** when accelerating...not all the time though. During a drive, you can also feel the car suddenly slow and then pick up again. The van never goes on the highway, so only about 45mph does it go.

I believe that either the timing chain is still wrong, or the auto transmission is worn and is slipping. As for the heater, I am led to believe that it is either the thermostat, heater core, or something else.

No idea what to even do.

Try having heater core flushed and replace the heater control valve. As for the hesitation, that could be the 02 sensor needs to be replaced, or something may be clogged in the fuel system. my van is a 3.0. Had to replace fuel pump. Also when you've had work done like that the mechanic needs to reset computer, once that done it takes a while for it to run properly again. Hope this helps.

My 1995 Plymouth Voyager loses power, surges and backfires.

My first instinct tells me timing chain or belt, but it could be a vacuum line loose, cracked or disconnected. Using a stethoscope, or a length of gasline hose held to your ear, and with the engine running, listen for a hissing sound. Be sure and wiggle all the hoses you can. You might make one hiss. If you don't find anything, get a timing light, and check your timing marks. They should stay in basically one spot. If it's jumping around a lot, you need a new timing chain or belt. Good luck.

Waterpump replacement

Your water pump is driven by your timing belt. If it needs doing, a good reccomendation is to do your timing belt, tensioner, and timing kit, because it's that big of a job and that time consuming.
