Question about 1991 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

91 plymouth grand voyager dies when it warms up to operating temperature then starts and runs normally after cooling a little while. Replaced fuel filter and coil. Fuel still has pressure after it dies so fuel pump is working. This model has no pickup coil and ignition module appears to be in Engine control module. Is timing picked up by crackshaft sensor? What is the most likely culprit. Engine control module is $179.00 so would like to exhaust all other possibilties first.

    immediately after it dies I have checked the spark by putting a screwdriver in a spark plug wire and cranking the engine. I have observed a spark every time and it seems to run normally for a while afterwards. How do I check the intake air temp sensor(suggested by another expert) and the coolant temperature sensor? Can I check them with an ohmmeter or voltmeter? What readings should I get?

Possibly the coolant temperature sensor is faulty , Please give a check to it then go for replacing the engine control module.

Fuel delivery problems?


Okay this vehicle is 27 years old. It may well have out lived its usefulness. Have you thought about getting a newer vehicle that does not cause such problems?

1997 plymouth grand voyager runs normally but shuts off when it reaches operating temperature, won't start until it cools down. There is a smell of burned rubber, but can't find anything hot or that can...


First thing i would try is to carry a can of WD-40 or quick start with me and when it quits and won't start, remove air intake hose at throttle body opening, open throttle enough to give a good spray inside throttle body, release throttle, then try to start it . If it starts and runs momentarily, you have a fuel delivery problem. If not you have an ignition problem. Then you can start troubleshooting from there.
Or you can carry something to test for spark. I just find this way easier. Don't know when/if fuel pump has ever been replaced, but not uncommon for them to work when cool and quit pumping when they get warmed up, even though they sound like they are still working. That's where a fuel pressure test would also confirm, keeping in mind pressure may read good when first started but will drop later when warmed up and engine quits.

Runs when warm wont start when cold


There is a temperature sensor on the engine. The computer uses the readout from it to feed more fuel during cold start up. If you replace the sensor it should be O.K..

This may be caused by the idle air control sticking.
BTW, warming up a modern vehicle for the sake of the engine is not good; driving it off gently will bring it up to operating temperature more quickly and reduce wasted fuel. The engine just shouldn't be operated at high revs right away.

Dashboard gauges out


There was a recall years ago on the ignition switch. Something wears and causes the switch to catch and hang a little so it doesn't spring back all the way to run position. The car runs but some of the other contacts are out of line or something. On mine it only happens occasionally and if I nudge the switch backwards just a little bit the dash lights and everything start working as it should. Or just shut it off and restart. Or go ahead and replace the switch itself.

1992 plymouth grand voyager wont stay running


i can tell you its not the fuel pump.if you smell fuel then the pump is working right,you may have a weak crankshaft sensor though which would keep it from starting and running. but its definately not the fuel pump maybe you have water in your gas
