Question about 1991 Plymouth Laser

2 Answers

I was driving on the freeway and my 1991 Plymouth Laser RS just died with no warnings. The starter spins and turns the crank but it just doesnt seem to have any spark. all I hear is a whizzing sound. It has a brand new battery and alternator and all of the lights work inside and out. Where do I start to look for the problem?

Doesn't seem to have spark?? did you use a tester?? basic needs, spark tester(in line works best) fuel pressure guage, injector signal tester(noid light) and finally compression guage, rad tester optional, check spark and injector signal, the remove spark plugs and note their color, do a compression test, all cylinders should read within 10 percent, lo compression on one or two indicate head gasket, no compression timing belt, have fun

Hi Teresa thats ththhe sign of a battery going bad, how old is the battery? You might want to have it load tested so you can trouble shoot further, there could be more than 1 issue.

Engine died while driving on the freeway, now only cranks but wont turn over/


As with any no start problem, have you checked for spark at the plugs and normal fuel pressure at the injectors ?
Does it crank with normal compression ?

Engine just quit without warning. No unusual sounds. Starter turns, but engine will not fire


well if the serpetene belt if frayed when was the timing belt last changed if that belt breaks it will not run and would have shut off a sign would be the engine spins over fast on some you can see the camshaft threw the hole where you add the oil if so have someone crank it over while you watch the cam

I have a 91 Toyota pickup 4x4 and the engine died while driving at normal speed


As with any no start condition, you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a fuel problem or spark problem. If the engine is cranking normally we will assume the timing belt is ok.
You can check for spark at the plugs, and try spraying carb cleaner into the intake hose.
Also check the computer for trouble codes and the fuel pressure at the injectors.

My 1990 plymouth laser rs 2.0 liter turbo will start but dies if im not on the gas if i stay on the gas i can drive it but its slow to get up


This could be any number of things unfortunatley. I'd start with fuel pressure. Check the pressure. It could possibly be your fuel pressure regulator.

My 1991 plymouth voyager will not start the battery is good but when i turn the ignition it doesnt do anything what could be ther problem


It may lie with the ignition system but a good chance the starter has failed. If you have the ability you can jump the solenoid to check this. If the starter then engages you know to look else where. Try the starter and move on from there.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
