First thing, and it costs nothing, is clean the throttle body interior thoroughly. Lift the throttle plate with your fingers and make that interior spotless, pay special attention to the rim of the throttle plate too. OK check out how it runs. If the problem is still there have a garage or Autozone do a code read from on the on-board diagnostics (OBD). If the car is exhibiting rough engine running I would check spark plug condition and the efficiency of the spark plug holders/leads. If when the car stalls does it start up directly or is it reluctant. If the former, change the cam sensor and if the latter, change the crank sensor. Both sensors when faulty also give rise to intermittent misfire events. At the age of your vehicle I would replace both as an insurance policy as they both have finite life. If no codes show on OBD replace the O2 sensor on the exhaust manifold. O2 sensors deteriorate with age and often give problems before the on OBD can detect them. The fact that you have a CEL also indicates an emission fault which points to an O2 sensor signal outside of normal range.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

I have a 1996 Plym. Grand Voyager, hesitation & stalling.


If it works well at speed and acts up when slowing or stopped it doesn't sound like fuel filter or pump. You can try running injector cleaner through the engine to clean the carborator injectors or fuel injectors if you have those. Look at replacing the plugs and wires on the motor.

93 plymoth voyager mini van keeps stalling when climbing hills or high temps. i have picked up an oxygen sensor have not instaled yet wondering if anyone has encountered anything simulare?


Oxygen sensor won't help you have a bad fuel filter or fuel pump is not pumping under load which colud be casue by the maf sensor or the furel regulater is bad, to know which one it is you would have to rent a fuel pressure tester and see if the pump is within specks These problems are expensive so I won't tell you wich one it is except change the filter firs, could even be needing a tune up but you have not stated if it had been tuned up or not. Leave more information and I will try to help or someone will try.

my suspect would be the alternator at this point. an alternator can cause sudden stall out while driving. did the lights(headlight/dash light) dim out when you stalled? do they dim when you try to start it. the belts and fan is intact? i dont think it will show a code if its not getting any juice from alternator. it also could be ignition switch but i need this info first.
let me know

I have a 1994 plymouth voyager and it stalls.


I had the same problem with mine. It ended up being the catalytic converter was clogged.

Have someone get under the van and rattle (kick, hit with hammer or something) the catalytic converter. If you hear a "rattleing" sound - then that's your problem.

1996 plymouth voyager mini van engine stays on, 500.00 complete tune has been done engine light went off but came back on less then a mile from Pep Boys.


A tune up in most cases has nothinf to do with a check engine light, unless the engine is missing, go to Autozone or Kragen auto and ask to have the OBD system checked for trouble codes, then post them here and we will look at them, the test by the way is free.
