Question about 1996 Buick Roadmaster

Plymouth Voyager won't turn over

I've got a 1996 Plymouth Voyager 2.4 engine. It died on me as I was driving it. I've replaced the battery. When I try and start it, it tries so hard to turn over but just won't start. I'm getting compression and fuel sprays out of that tire knob looking thing. My timing belt is good and so is my starter and alternator. Fuel filter seems fine. Someone said if I change my spark plugs that should get it going? I've already replaced so much and worked on this forever. Any other ideas or is this person correct? Thanks

    I'm not sure how to check if I have spark.

    I replaced the spark plugs, only two looked slightly bad. Still won't
    start. Then I sprayed started fluid in air filter, still no start.
    Tried spraying it down in spark chamber and still no start. I've run out of things to check now. I give up on it.

If the plugs are fouled they would be a problem. But why are they fouled? There should be a reason.

Need wireing digran for 1996 Plymouth Voyager SE 6 Cyl 3.3L Question ! when replacing Engine Control Module 1996 Plymouth Voyager dies the computer need to re set by auto shop personal? Replaced...

When the ECM is replaced you need to have it reprogrammed. It may run the engine for a bit but there are t many variables to keep it going. Some auto parts stores are doing this now. call around. Much cheaper than a dealer. If you had it reprogrammed then you need to check the codes. This will give a direction to go.

I have a 1996 Plymouth Voyager van that dies and starts

The very 1st thing that must be done here to start diagnosis of this problem is to have the PCM (powertrian control module) scanned for fault codes, that is key to fixing this right first time. In most area's Autozone and O'reilly auto parts do this test for free (except California).

Hi I am Vortash i suggest that you spray all your electrical connections plugs etc with a switch cleaner fluid .. Not wd40 .. but an actual electrical contact cleaner . Check your Battery Earth connections and battery terminals and all fuses and relays spray with the cleaner also . Check the engine to body earth strap and your main ECU plug .. hope this helps regards Vortash

Take it over to a Auto Zone store they advertize that they will read the diagnostic cods for free. with the check engine light on there are codes logged in the cpu. the codes will point you in the direction to go. this will save you lots of time.
