2000 plymouth voyager stalls while driving

I have replaced the egr valve but my vehicle has the same problem. I saw some vaccum hoses that need some attention. Could this be causing the stalling of the engine?

Bad vaccum pressure causes your car to change the fuel/air ratio and makes it run bad and can cause it to stall out

2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager having issues starting

i would think that you need to look for a leak, there are rubber hoses attached to your steel lines under your van and in the engine compartment, as well as your fuel pump. start your van with the parking brake applied, and tires blocked, then you can trace your fuel lines out, just remember if you dont see a wet spot that doesnt mean theres no leak, your looking for dry rotted hose. what could be causeing a starting delay could be that its sucking air, and if your fuel pump is under the hood, then the fuel line going from the fuel tank to the front is a suction hose, if you have a fuel pump in the fuel tank the that line is a pressure hose. hope this helps

1999 plynouth grand voyager was coding egr replace

just because the check engine light is back on, it doesn't necessarily mean it is for the same problem. it could be, but would need to pull codes again to find out what its for. literally hundreds of different codes could turn on check engine light. also, was original code for "insufficient egr flow" or "excessive egr flow"? it makes a difference.

I have a 1989 Plymouth Reliant 2.5 l engine. I have a intermitten problem with stalls on/off for last two years, but for last two weeks very often. My observation about stalling: stalls often at the...

If you notice the car running rich(black smoke out of the exhaust) you might look at the MAP sensor. It is a common problem with these cars,and about 50 bucks at your local parts store. You will find it on the passenger side inner fender just in front of the strut tower, it is a small black box with one vaccum line and one elec. plug. try pulling off the vac. line and plugging it with a bolt the car should idle like that, if it does, you have found your problem. Hope this helps

My 2000 plymouth voyager idles fast and Erratic, I have replaced the idle air control valve and the throttle speed control. what else could cause this problem

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.

When stopped (car in drive) the idle drops and the engine wants to stall out. I was told I needed to replace the EGR cable?

EGR movement limited/blocked by carbon.


Check for

vacuum leaks on intake manifold,

the air tube between the air filter.

intake manifold vacuum hose.

clean throttle plate with Berryman carburator cleaner

SEE sample picture HERE

Also remove carbon built up behind the EGR valve and the EGR passage tube.


Vacuum leak WILL offset the intended 14.7 to 1 air fuel ratio.

More un-metered air (leaks) will lean out the fuel mixture.

Use small amount of Berryman carb clearer at potential air leak area will help you identify trouble spot.

At idle,just spray and listen for the RPM surge.

The in-rush of carb clearer will increase the RPM on the motor.

Record the problem spot(s) and address it later.


EGR carbon built up require 2+ hours to clean from start to finish.

You will need a new EGR base gasket before your start.

Locate and remove the EGR valve after the vehicle is cool down.

Carefully record the connector and vacuum line (for older vehicle) location by drawing an easily to follow diagram.

Remove the EGR valve.

Inspect the location of the carbon built-up inside the valve and the EGR passage tube.

SOAK these areas with WD-40 spary.

You will need a small screwdriver,cloth hanger and lot of newspaper and time to get this cleaning done right.

RE-SOAK the carbon and let it sit for over-night will also help.

One the last round,pass a shop vacuum of the EGR valve and the passage pipe.

Install the new EGR gasket and connectors.

Allow the vehicle to warm up outdoor to burn up any remaining WD-40.

Take it for a test drive.

You need an egr valve/egr valve control solenoid. You can get them through Napa, Carquest or Dodge. You may also need the coolant temperature sensor (for the ECM) as it may have damaged this in the process. Very common problem on the 4 and 6 cyl Dodge engines.

Hope that helps.

2000 plymouth voyager stalls

I had the same problem with my van, it turned out to be the EGR valve (emissions-gasoline-regulator) valve. It cost about $65, but well worth it!!! About a 20 min. job
