Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

My 99 Voyager won't crank. The intake valve is blowing out air instead of in. I was told that it was a bent valve, but I was also told it could be just the valves. Any advice??

Why does my chevy 350 small block keep blowing the rear seal on intake manifold?


Is the PCV valve working ? The valve opens when the engine is running and pulls fumes from the crankcase into the intake to burn them. The other valve cover has a vent cap or hose that goes to the air cleaner.

REPLACED THE 99 ISUZU3.2 TIMING BELT...FOLLOWED THE PROCEDURES IN THE HAYNES MANUAL,MARKS ARE LINED UP CORRECTLY,ENGINE STILL POPPING BACK THROUGH THE AIR INTAKE AND HAS NO POWER...IS THERE A TIMING...


There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that may apply to your situation. It is bulletin number IB00-S005.

This TSB addresses re=timing of the camshaft sub-gear in the event the timing belt was broken or the cams were rotated with the timing belt removed.

The only other thing I can suggest is to check for bent or broken valves. Popping back through the intake can only be caused by three things.
1. Camshaft timing incorrect
2. Broken or very weak valve spring.
3. Burnt or bent intake valve

I have a 99 nissan pathfinder that won't start, it has spark and fuel. I even sprayed starting fluid and still won't start, replaced the distributor, same problem. does the crank sensor has to do...


well it takes four things for an engine to start,air, fuel ,ignition and proper timing of ignition and valvetrain . if you have spark then i presume the cams are turning , fuel injection is control by the ecm based on crank and cam inputs ( if applicable been awhile since seen a 99 nissan )
if you have spark then can assume the ecm is getting a crank sensor pulse , that leaves valve timing . any codes? check light on ?
did it die suddenly or just not start one day ? i would be app to check timing belt first make sure its lined up correctly . even if fuel injs were inop it should still start on staring fluid indicating a fuel problem, i would do a compression check also if the belt jumped it may have bent some valves if its interference engine but i dont remember, and make sure its getting air through the air intake

Oil in air filter wot causes this car in qustion is a jag xj8


This issue is caused by crankcase pressure issue.
Normally filtered air enters the engine, runs through the crank case and then is pulled into the intake through the PCV valve. Durning hard acceleration, the PCV valve closes (to prevent explosion of fumes in crank case and blowing valve covers and pan off) and the PCV system reverses, with fumes coming back through the filtered intake.

Usually there is minimal oil that gets back into the air cleaner.

So, when somthing goes wrong, like excessive blow by, for example, the crankcase pressure overcomes the PCV valve and intake of fumes capability, and oily starts showing up in the air filter.

Investigate the crankcase pressure and PCV system.

99 ford running rough


If it's dead in cylinder one then it could be a burt valve to find out for sure all you do is put it up on top dead center of the compression stroke and pull the spark plug out and apply air to that cylinder, You can remove the air cleaner and the radiator cap so that where ever the air comes out thats where your problem is, if it comes out the intake its the intake valve if it's comming out the exhaust pipe its you exhaust valve if it blows bubbles out of the radatior then it's the head gasket, if it comes out of the rocker arm cover then it's the rings.

1997 plymouth grand voyager v6 3.0L broken timing belt


I had the same thing happen, No, I was told this is not one of the engines that allows the piston to contact the valves. I replaced the timing belt 2 years ago and had no valve problems.

There could be several reasons, here's a list of the most common things it could be.
  1. check the timing
  2. idle speed is to high
  3. incorrect spark plug heat range
  4. intake air vacuum leak
  5. valves sticking
  6. leaky fuel injectors

95 xr7 wont start after head gasket up replacement,got spark got fuel set timing. only thing is intake blows instead of sucks? is that normal? what could the problem be?


Do you mean the air intake? If your air intake blows and the motor doesn't run it may mean your valve timing is wrong. How did you set your valve timing after you took off the head? If you weren't careful you may have set the timing for number 1 cylinder on its exhaust stroke and not its power stroke. This will put your timing 360 degrees out.

Incorrect valve timing may produce the effect that the engine pumps air out of its intake when it is cranked.
