Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager

1 Answer

Can not shift into any gear without heating it up all the way or it stalls. Also when slowing down if the car slightly cools off it will stall. heat her up all the way and keep her heated up and it

I bought a 2000 Chrystler Grand Voyger se minivan. I have to heat up the car until the fan comes on to successfully shift it into reverse drive etc. I can not just jump in the car and put it into any gear with out it totally shutting off. If you don't heat up the car all the way then it will stall when you slow down and shut off. If it happens to cool off at all say on the highway etc. then when you get off at your exit and slow down it shuts off. If the car is heated up and stays heated up it rides smooth. What could this be? When we got diagnostics for it it said it was the mat sensor. We got a new one installed. They plugged it back up to diagnostic and it said the same thing it needed a new mat sensor. No check engine lights have come on or any lights and I have drove it for 300 miles or so.

Check the wire harness for the MAT sensor. it could have a broken wire lead that the ecm is not picking up.
 Good luck and hope this help.

Just purchased an au ute on gas drives ok for about 20 or 30 kms then stalls in gear and backfires when you accelerate even slightly

take it into an auto gas installer/ fitter shop as there appears to be a problem in the gas converter
possible internal corrosion or diaphragm problems
have the fault codes read to check for coil pack problems or ignition control module or problem position sensors breaking down from internal heat ( indications of stalling and back firing)

My 2002 nissan sentra ser keeps stalling at red lights

If the car does not have any other drivability problems then I would suspect a transmission torque converter problem which would make it stall with a slight ****. Does it stall coming to a stop before it has shifted to higher gears. If it stalls while in 2nd or 1st gear then it is not the converter.

Car idles, starts just fine but when I shift into gear it stalls.

It sounds like the kick down cable or "down shift cable" This is the cable on the transmission that shifts back down when the car slows. The transmission is most likely stuck in a higher gear and simply stalls the engine when shifted. replace this and i believe you will be back on the road. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Vibration when in gear, and stalling.

The problem is the torque converter solenoid. I had it happen on my 94 Cavalier a few years back and was a cheap fix at the local car mechanic. What happens is the transmission warms up and hits a certain speed where the solenoid engages, but then it sticks and won't disengage until it cools down sufficiently. When it sticks, it causes the car to shake when slowing down and will snub out the engine if you come to a stop.
