Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

My 1997 voyager is doing the same

But if you leave it over night it will crank, sometimes it will run for hours sometime for only a few minutes, thought it might be a fuel problem
as it is only used for boy scout trips, but added several bottle of fuel
additive and still have the problem, when it quits i have sprayed starting fluid into the system and still would not start, so seems more likely to be an electrical problem, i know right after i bought it there was a recall for the "clock spring" wiring harness at the base of the steering column,
could there be a problem there??

    i'll check the fuel pressure this weekend, probably need to put new filter on anyway, have a friend with a mits montero with the same 3.0 engine that is having the same problem, her is in the shop now,
    when hers would not crank i pulled the coil wire and there was fire there, took off a vacuum line on the fuel body and sprayed fluid in there with her holding the foot feed down and it still didn't crank, would this also be the sensor flaky??

1997 voyager will start sometimes and wont sometimes

I suspect you have a failing electric fuel pump inside the fuel tank. To confirm this is the problem get a can of spray starting fluid from the auto parts store, when you experience the next no start spray the starting fluid into the air intake hose to the engine while a friend cranks it over with the starter, if it starts right up you likely have a defective fuel pump.

My 1990 plymouth voyager will not start at times, other times it starts just fine, I have replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter but that has not helped , we have taken it to the plymouth dealer in two...

to clarify, are you getting spark (even when it doesn't start?) My vehicle (1990 grand voyager 3.3L) does the same thing. Sometimes starts, sometimes not but may (or may not) in a few minutes or hours, etc.. Always has spark. So I have a "fails to start" of about 33% which means it is unreliable to drive and not be stranded somewhere. I've been chasing this problem for months, but my workaround is to carry ether/starting fluid. Squirting a little into the intake (open the air filter box) and it ALWAYS starts when cranked. Otherwise the van runs fine (strong performance, good milage, etc.) It's just starting without help that's unreliable.

I know the ballast resistor is bypassed when cranking to start (and in the circuit for regular operation). This could be my problem and I'll look into it. The ether is easier to ignite than gasoline fumes.

My 97 lasabre periodically stops running at any speed or even stopped. It will not start back up until a few minutes later. It will turn over but not fire off. sometimes it take 10 minutes and sometimes it...

when the problem is happening, you need to check to see if you've lost spark or fuel. when you try to restart the car,can you smell gas? if you can,you need to pull off a spark plug wire and put a screwdriver into the end of the wire. set it down 1/4" or so from a metal ground. have someone crank the engine, see if there is a nice strong spark. if so, you're fuel pump is probably faulty. it's inside the gas tank

Sounds like the ECM is bad. This is a common problem, when the ECM gets hot there is a solder joint that seperates, it makes contact again once it cools down

Think it's time to have it scanned & find out for sure, it will probably save you money in the long run if you have it checked now. Sometimes it's a simple as removing the wiring plugs and cleaning them thoroughly & re-installing them, but the longer you leave it, the more chance of worse damage.

02 pontiac sunfire won't crank at random times

Hi, I had the same problem with my girlfriend's 97' sunfire, it wouldn't start so I jumped the starter terminals which I think screwed it up even more (causing the theftlock light to come on). It turns out this is a common problem that can be solved by hooking up a GM Tech2 scanner, going under "body" codes, and following the instructions for bypassing the PASS LOCK SOLENOID. Hope you find this helpful, Byron

My '95 Thunderbird wil turn over but randomly will not start.

Your crank sensor may be really dirty and can't get a good signal from the reluctor near the balancer. Check the wiring harness to it as well. You may need a new crank sensor.
