Question about Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

I just bought a 1998 Plymouth Voyager minivan from my in-law's. They had warned us about an oil leak, but his dad had always kept the vehicles in good running condition. Now she has white smoke coming from her tailpipe, and an oil leak that drains so quickly, the engine will "grumble/knock" cause it's reaction to NOT having hardly any oil in it. My husband found one of the leaks and clamped it off which helped, but it seems the leak is getting worse. We just moved from Ft.Drum,NY to San Antonio,Tx and we REALLY need this van to stay working!!! Especially since my husband will be going back to school really soon. ANY help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

You are giving every indication of a blown head gasket, white smoke is coolant finding its way into the combustion chamber, you will probable need a new head by now, if not you will destroy the rest of the engine sorry

Can I run ethynol (e85) fuel in my 1998 grand voyager. Have always used unleaded 89 octane. Has 200,00 miles.

98 was the first year chrysler introduced an E85 compliant minivan. This only applies to the 3.3 liter engine. The 3.8 liter is NOT compatible.

We have a 99 and this is what we found. It ends up costing us more to run E85 than regular fuel. E85 is less efficient and will decrease your fuel economy 25-30%. Currently the price offset does compensate for this and as a result you will fill up more often and will not see a significant savings after the math is done.

Chrysler also recommended, at the time, to use a special E85 compliant oil which also costs more money. You can check with your local chrysler dealer to see if this is still true.

I have a code on my minivan its 1698 what do this main i just got the van i had it for about a week should i try to get my money back in if so do you know how i can og about getting my money back

A code 1698 means that one or more of the vehicles' computers is not communicating with the others. Have this repaired and the computer(s) reset (engine, transmission, and body) before any other diagnostics. Did you gadges stop working?? As for getting your money back, check you local anti-lemon laws, or if its from a dealer, generaly you can return the car with in 14-30 days with no penelties. Good luck.
