Sounds like a dry coil

coils are built with an insulation to dissipate heat
in the old days they used "oil" and you knew they were almost dead when the vehicle would do just want you mentioned... die while driving and not restart until cooled down

today's coils are much different except they use a solid insulation...when this breaks down you get the same affect

after 14 years, assuming you have the original coil its a safe bet!!!

97 plymouth grand voyager wont start changed the fuel pump and filter replaced the ecm, ignition coil and checked all fuses it started up after changing fuel pump it ran for like twenty min then died

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

Voyager dies while driving and won't start back until it sits for awile?

Hello, replace the fuel filter. Also what type of fuel are you using in this Grand Voyager? Does the fuel have alcohol additive to it and/or are you using E85 fuel?

If you are using fuel will alcohol additive at 10% or more. These type fuel is used in the winter months where it cold---very cold. They are not suppose to sell this fuel in the summer months, especially in geographical areas of the US where it gets extremely hot.

Some states make the fuel distributors to add alcohol. Now, the experts who think they know how things work will say there no way a new vehicle can get vapor lock.....I conclude they don't what they are talking about. In very hot conditions, and the very high temperature under hood around the engine compartment. This temperature can be 350-400 degrees. This will cause the alcohol in the injector fuel rail turn into vapor. The fuel injector can"t inject vapor through the fuel injectors; therefore, the engine will stall and quick running. Trying to get the Grand Voyager started is impossible because of the high temperatures in the engine compartment. One will have to wait three or four hours for the engine and the engine compartment to cool down.

FIX, carry four or five one gallon contains of water during the hot summer months, watch the stop and go traffic then you"ll need to turn the air conditioner off, don't play with all the power systems.

Now, if the Grand Voyager stalls to "vapor lock" . Raise the hood and let hot air dissipate for about 10 minutes. Then take a gallon of water and pour on the fuel rail on both side of this engine, it is a V6. Make sure you are pour the water on the fuel rail, fuel regulator (has a rubber hose attached to fuel regulator) and the fuel injectors. Once you are done pouring the water at the needed places on the engine. Try starting you Grand Voyager, Remember to turn off, AC, and any devises that use power turn them also. The Grand Voyager will start but keep everything off. Now drive it about 10 to 15 miles with all none necessary items off. This drive will help to keep the temperature down. Once the temperature comes down then turn you AC unit on.

Now, while you are cruising at 60/70 and your Grand Voyager starts to hesitate then turn off AC and other power burning options. In the hot summer months you might try higher octane fuel 89 or 91 octane. Don't add any octane booster to the fuel---it's not good stuff----

Well Katherine, I hope and pray that the information that I have given you, will really help you.

walk gently upon this earth, and she shall be good to you for eternity. GB....stewbison

Hi, I can,t seem to find a diagram of the fuel system to locate the fuel filter on my 96 plymouth grand voyager. I am not getting any fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Am i on the right track? Thank you ...

Zero fuel pressure means the pump is not functioning. Most likely the pump itself is bad. But first check all fuses, relays and wiring to the pump.

i can tell you its not the fuel pump.if you smell fuel then the pump is working right,you may have a weak crankshaft sensor though which would keep it from starting and running. but its definately not the fuel pump maybe you have water in your gas
