Question about 1993 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

While driving home from work my wife said that our 1993 voyager suddenly made a kind of whooshing sound and then the van lost power. I tried to restart and it would crank but not start. And I notice that the sound when it cranks is very different than it was when working...sort of like something is missing is the best that I can describe it. I tried using some starter fluid to see if maybe it wasn't getting gas, but it didn't even cough. Any ideas? It is a 4 cyl. engine with 5 speed manual tranny.

Sounds very much like your timing belt has gone away. To verify without actually removing the cover, you can check compression...if very low on all cylinders you can bet it has failed. also you can check to see if rotor in distributor is turning while cranking. Generally I do not recommend cranking with broken belt, but, you have done that already so any further damage from that (possible bent valves) has already happened.

Engine Knocking / No Power


Dosent sound good. Oil light on means you lost oil pressure. and the knocking sound is the damage done due to low pressure. Start looking for another engine or another van.

Try bleading the brakes, sounds like you have in them. Than the ABS light should go out & you shouldn't have to worry about the fuses.

Internal combustion engines requires 3 things... fuel, air, and spark. You do not have enough of one or more of these. If the wires and plugs are old, change them.  Air filter, same thing.  Fuel filter can also clog up with stuff after awhile. When you take a look at the air filter check where the air comes from.  It is possible a little critter has built a home and blocked the air flow (rare, but, it has happened).

92 Voyager Grand, no power mirrors and locks dosen't worl


Sometimes there are two fuse boxes. The companies like to mess with you. Usually theres one under the hood and one inside the cab, under the driver's side steering controls, ie: lay on the floor by the pedals and look up, or if you open the door and look at the dash from the side it could be there.

It really does sound like a fuse problem. Have you tried testing the fuse with a multimeter?

It sounds like the bands in your transmission are worn out. You will need to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt.
