Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

My 1997 Voyager appears to be leaking gasoline. It has a 3.0 liter engine and runs fine. But I'm positive there is a leak somewhere because I put 4 gallons in the tank, go about 50 miles and the gas gauge says it's on empty. Could it be a faulty gas gauge? Do you have any suggestions?

It could be the gauge, or the sensor attached to the Fuel pump in the fuel tank. I don't remember if the Instrument cluster has a replace gauge for fuel in that year model, I know the 1994 didn't. To replace the sensor in the tank you have to replace the pump as well, they are 1 piece and run about $200 for the part. I would just start keeping track of mileage with the trip meter if it were me but the choice is yours. You can replace the Instrument cluster with a used one or refurbished one if you like. That will cost about $75 for the part. If that doesn't work it's the tank sensor.

I have a 1997 GMC Jimmy 4.3 liter V6 4 wheel drive why would it lose power and want to stall when I put it in gear


The first thing you need to do is have the engine computer control module scanned for fault codes. Autozone and O'reilly auto parts do this for free. Ask for a OBD2 fault code test.

4 cyl., 5 speed. Why is it leaking somewhere under the frame - not transmission fluid


Smell the fluid. If it smells like gasoline you have a gas leak. If it smells like antifreeze you could have a hose or a anti freeze cooler line leaking. Or could be a water pump leaking and running along the frame under the car. Get a flash light and crawl under neath the vehicle and see where the fluid is coming from.

Where is leak detection pump & cost of part,is it do it yourself fix 1997 plymouth grand voyager 3 liter engine


Sounds like either a fuel pump or throttle position sensor. Check the pressure at the port on the fuel rail. It should be at least 30 PSI while running. TPS is mounted right on the throttle body. Amazon sells them both.

Could be a freeze plug on the engine block. If you have a block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, check it for getting too loose and leaking. Pretty common problem with a block heater that's been in there a long time.

How do you remove a fuel pump on a 97 plymouth grand voyager


    • 1 Make sure the engine is completely cool. Relieve the pressure in the fuel system. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Elevate the vehicle and support the fuel tank with a jack.
    • 2 Disconnect the fuel line from the front of the tank. Remove the ground strap, the inboard side fuel tank straps and the front T-strap fastener, then lower the tank approximately six inches.
    • 3 Take the fuel lines from the fuel pump module. Plug the fuel lines with golf tees to prevent the spillage of gasoline. Remove the fuel filter.
    • 4 Install the new fuel filter. Set the bolts in place and torque them to 40 inch/pounds. Tighten the main tank straps to 40 foot/pounds and the T-strap to 250 inch lbs.
    • 5 Reconnect the fuel lines in the reverse order of their removal. Lower the vehicle. Connect the negative battery cable.
    • 6 Start the engine and let it run for several minutes. Inspect the fuel lines for any leaks.

check for vacume leaks on intake and other vacume hoses. random misfire is also usually a clogged fuel filter or pressure regulator. could also be a cam or knock sensor. are their any trouble codes.
