Question about 1994 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Engine cranks, but won't start. Car has gas-Confirmed. Air Filter clean. Problem developed over several days. (i.e. harder & harder to start each day.) No problem noticed in engine/vehicle performance while driving, or engine idling, during this time frame. I had changed the fuel pump & filter a few years ago (3-5 years ago pump failed.) I usually can hear the fuel pump run for a few sec.s when I turn the key on, but cannot hear it now. Have not checked fuses for pump yet, but would like to think the pump would have lasted longer than 3-5 years. Also don't understand why it only affected starting only, and not operation? I figure that it is the fuel pump, but it was very hard to change, and I didn't want to change it, only to find that there was something else wrong.... Thank you. John

    fuel pump would not be my first start you say no fuel pump hum.. ok second thing to check is to turn key to the run position and see if the check engine light comes on on cluster...if so computer is powering up... next you will need to scan to pull codes they have a big problem with the crank gets tiny cracks in it and the oil seeps in causing hard to start problems... possibly set a code and check engine light then comes on...not sure of the year of van but if it has a distributor the the flat round pick up under the rotor button... if new or 6 cylinder the a two wire sensor goes in body of motor near radiator side of motor... write back if more info needed

Test replace the fuel pump relay, make sure the relay socket has 12 volts to 2 of it's terminal when the key is held in crank position, if not you may have a defective ignition switch or Powertrain control module (PCM)

[ Start over ]

The engine won't turn over at all ?

Or it just won't start ?

You have to know what the main issue is
& how to diagnose,we can only guess
up to a point.

Also-- what about how it has been starting &
running for the last several months?

What about preventative maintenance--spark
plugs,O2 Sensors,fuel filter,fuel pressure,stored
codes,fuel trim when it did run.

Those are things a professional checks,hopefully
on a road test with a scan tool & a helper along for
the ride.

Replaced fuel pump and filter and will not start

It can take several minutes' worth of cranking to get the air out of the system before the pressure builds to the pojnt that the car will start. I assume that the engine's cranking, but it just won't catch and run; you can bleed the air out of the lines faster if you take the dust cap off of the fuel pressure test connector (it's right behind the power steering fluid reservoir) and GENTLY push down on the valve. I wouldn't do this while cranking the engine, as you can get a huge spray of fuel in your face and create a really serious fire hazard that way, but several cycles of briefly turning the ignition on and off to run the pump a little and then letting the air out will generally get the system to the point where you can start the car.

Car started only after several cranks, was told fuel pump replacement, is it normal with 68,000 miles?

You probably have a submersable pump. If you have run the gas on below 1/4 tank for some time, you probably burned out the pump. Alway fill up 1/2 tank or more.

And with the mileage, it isn't unusual to replace the pump.
