Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager

Open Question

My '98 Plymouth Voyager (129,000 miles) looses power but only very sporadically and idles erratically- usually when going up steep grade for an extended length of time. "Service Engine Soon" light also comes on and off, sometimes for months, sometimes for weeks. My mechanic replaced the fuel pump, the map sensor, fuel filter, and I have replaced the computer...still runs the same...acts like it's not getting enough gas.

SOURCE: Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

You may have build up in the intake where the throttle plate is, so it would have to be cleaned and the egr valve could be stuck or the purge canister may be defective. It could be a vachum line off the engine somewhere or even loose intake bolts or the egr valve is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced and or cleaned.

SOURCE: my water pump went on my 98 plymouth voyager how much will it cos

You don't mention what engine you have ( there are 4 cyl, or 2 v-6 choices 3.0L or 3.3L available for that year). The water pump costs anywhere from $50 to $80, depending where you buy it, labor is supposed to take about one hour (access to the water pump is through the wheel well, after removing the plastic liner). There are other things that can raise the cost: how old is your coolant? This is a good time to have it changed if it needs it, what is the condition of the serpentine belt? It has to be removed to replace the pump, so again, if it needs to be changed, this is the time to do it. Dealers are charging about $100 an hour in my area, private garages less, and there will be additional charges for 'environmental' concerns, which is basically properly disposing of parts and fluids. So, the best thing to do is check with your local dealer and service stations and get an estimate on the work, and if anything else is needed (coolant, belt, etc) for a price in your area. With the economy not doing well, there should be plenty of repair facilities eager to give you an estimate. Good luck.

98 plymouth van all panel gauges not working


You provide very limited information in your problem description, however, whenever I see any mention of dash gauges not working on these vehicles, I immediately suspect the soldered pins on the back of the instrument cluster circuit board. If you have also been having other trouble lights turning off and on erratically, then I would almost guarantee that this is the problem. Google "98 voyager instrument cluster solder" to find several posts describing how to fix your problem. It's rather simple, fairly quick, and free! I had this problem on my van recently and was amazed at how all problems were eliminated by re-soldering these pins.

The stalling is most likely caused by the Idle Air Control solenoid (IAC) and/or a dirty throttle body . This can also cause erratic acceleration if your throttle is sticking.

The problem with your blower motor is most likely caused by the blower motor resistor. All of the speeds except HIGH are routed through it. It is also possible (but not real likely) that your blower control switch could be bad.

98 Ply Grand Voyager, 1.4K miles with recurring P0305 code.


You say you changed the cap and rotor so I'm assuming the van has a 3.0L? Possible injector problem on cylinder #5, swap injector with cylinder 1 or 3 and see if miss/dtc moves to that cylinder. You also could have a vaccum leak, although they usually won't come and go. Does the vehicle have a consistent miss or do you just have a check engine light?

Idle problem for a plymouth grand voyager 94 3.3 v6


try this procedure it will help wit the idle, don't know about the overdrive issue.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
