Question about 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager

99 Chrysler Van, Gauge panel not working, engine starts then dies

This has been on-going for some time now. Happens more on hot days. Some times if I rap on the dash panel, the odometer lights come on and then it will start.

I've also had this happen while I'm driving. The gauges all die, but if the engine is already running, it keeps running.

I'm thinking a loose connection some where. ??????????

Check the wire harnesses around the exhaust cross-over. Many have found degraded wires there, as I did. The cover is held by Velcro. Also change your spark plug wires, especially the rear ones.

My 95 3L Lebaron Dies when the car is stopped. It starts then dies immediately, after many cranks with lots a gas it will run. Only happens when cold.


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off. My info says 48 psi.

I ran my 2000 chrysler voyager se 3.3 v6 for a while yesterday and it ran great now it wont start at all i need some ideas of what to check i personally think it is the fuel pump????


I think you are right. the van ran great the day before and then it wont start the next day, this sounds like the most common problem and that would be the fuelpump. A quick test to try to see if it is the fuelpump would be to have someone inside the van tryying to start it while you lay under it and beat on the bottom of the gas tank with a rubber hammer or something that wont damage the tank and while its being cranked you will beat on the bottom of the tank and see if it starts, if it starts then you will know for sure its the pump, this shakes and vibrates the pump to get going again, now be careful because it may run fine and even restart again but just know that it will die agagin so make sure to replace the pump, hope this works, i use this method at work all the time and it works most of the time unless the pump is to far gone. good day. please let me know what happens thank you.

Car stalls while driving. Will start after about five minutes. Is not flooded. Doesn't usually do this until after it has been driven a bit. Does it more in warm weather. Check engine light sometimes...


I'd have fuel pressure tested. I had a 95' did same thing. Cold winter day, worked fine, as soon as it got warmer, or hot out, it would quit, and re-start 20 minutes later and go for a distance then die again. If I parked in the shade on a hot day, I'd get further before it quit for the first time. I started carrying a fuel pressure gauge with me. Cool in the morning my fuel pressure was up to spec @ 49-50psi. Once it got warm/hot out and it died, Hooked up gauge and it was at 2-5psi. Let it sit and cool off 20-30 minutes, pressure would jump back up and run good until fuel pump got hot again and then pressure dropped off and car quit. It sure sounds like the fuel pump, but the hard part will be getting the car to the shop at the right time, or they will need to let it run on the lot until it quits to confirm the pressure drop. One thing you can try is when car quits, have a can of WD-40 or quick start with you and a screwdriver. Loosen the clamp on the air intake hose where it connects to the front of the throttle body and pull it off. With vehicle off, turn throttle linkage so the plate opens up enough to spray WD-40 a second or 2 in the throttle body. Then try to start it. If it starts and runs momentarily, then you can be pretty sure it's fuel related and my guess is the pump needs replacement.

My 99 crysler town&country van 3.8l will start but cut right back of and back fires threw intake and exhaust


unless you have had recent engine work done, this symptom indicates a slipped timing belt/chain. To verify, you would need to remove the engine timing cover and check the timing marks on the camshaft sprocket. It is about a day's labor to replace the timing chain. If you would like instructions or have more questions, please let me know.

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.
