It is most likely the fuel regulator. It is near fuel rail and is disc shaped with a fuel line in and out. Remove the fuel line in to verify fuel getting to that point- take precautions, there will be a few pounds of fuel pressure stored. Have someone turn key on holding fuel line in a can. It should spray immediately, if so your fuel pump and filter are good. Do same thing on out line from regulator. if nothing the regulator is bad. If gas does come out, regulator good. If regulator is good you may have a spark issue. Is this a 2.4? If it is, the distributor packs are known to go bad in them and that is under center shroud over engine. Let me know and I can walk you through this fix if need be?!!? Check out my blog http://wecanfixanything.blogspot.com/. Good Luck

2002 chrysler voyager turns over but wont start where do i begin to look for the problem i was just driving n it shut down


DOES THIS UNIT HAVE A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. REMOVE AIR FILTER, IS IT BADLY PLUGGED? I LIKE TO SPRAY A SMALL AMOUNT OF EITHER IN THE INTAKE. IF IT SPUTTERS GENERALLY YOU HAVE SPARK. OR YOU CAN GET A SPARK TESTER AT YOUR LOCAL PARTS HOUSE AND PUT IT INLINE OF EACH PLUG AND TEST FOR SPARK AT EACH CYLINDER. NEXT DO YOU HAVE FUEL? CHECK ALL FUSES. ESPECIALLY THE FUEL PUMP FUSE. CHECK FOR POWER AT FUSES. IF ALL GOOD THERE WHEN KEY IS TURNED ON (INITIAL KEY ON) DOES THE FEUL PUMP TURN ON) IF GOOD THERE I WOULD REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER IF IT HASENT BEEN DONE IN LONG TIME, THEN CYCLE THE KEY IN 1 MINUTE INCREMENT S SEVERAL TIMES TO PRIME SYSTEM SEE IF UNIT STARTS. DID IT SPUTTER TO A STOP OR COMPLETE INSTANT SHUT DOWN?

Truck is sluggish and runs out of gas early


Hi Ktyson,

Hope you will not be offended but this sounds like possibly a poor maintenance issue. Filters can seriously damage performance and consumption on most engines. Might be good to have them checked out or if you air capable change them yourself. Good Luck,

dear friend: i think that your terracan is actually running out of fuel even if the guage shows quater,you can also put the old fuel filter back and try it,we did discover some of the new filters sucking air.

check the feul filter loacted under the car and put your key in the ignition and have someone listen at the rear of the car for the feul pump to prime. it sounds like a humm or buzzing if there is nothing that means you need a pump which will cost about a 150-175 dollars at your local parts store.
