Question about 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have a 2000 3.3 Plymouth Grand Voyager. It started to stall when decelerating at off ramps or at stop signs. it starts righ up and runs fine when moving at a steady rate of speed. It runs a bit rough when going slow over speed bumps....... I do not have any trouble lights on the dash, i have had two mechanics check it out and they have both said it could possibly be the fuel filter, but are grasping. Anyone got a clue?

Hi, I recommend you check the idle air control valve. If not that, maybe some of the other items I suggest in this post: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel

A quick test for operation of the IAC valve is to start the engine,
Observe the idle speed. Pull a vacuum hose (like the one leading from the brake booster to the intake manifold). The idle speed should rise, and then fall as the IAC motor tries to compensate for the vacuum leak.
Reattach the vacuum hose. The idle should drop, and then stabilize.
If the engine reacted as indicated, the circuit is probably OK.

One of the below pictures should apply to your engine.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa!

    By the way, your fuel pressure regulator is in the fuel tank, so I would not suspect that is your problem.

    Here is some info on your MAP sensor. It should be in the location shown in one of the pictures below (again close to the throttle body) and looks like the part I pasted in below.


















    Testing








    1. Visually check the connector, making sure it is attached properly and that all of the terminals are straight, tight and free of corrosion.

    2. Test the MAP sensor output voltage at the sensor connector (probe the back of the connector) between terminals B and C.

    3. With the ignition switch ON and the engine not running, the output voltage should be 4-5 volts. The voltage should fall to 1.5-2.1 volts with a hot, neutral idle speed condition. If not OK, go to Step 4.

    4. Test the MAP sensor ground circuit at the sensor connector terminal A. If OK, go to the next step. If not OK, repair as necessary.

    5. Test the MAP sensor supply voltage between the sensor connector terminals A and B with the ignition key in the ON position (not running). The voltage should be about 4.5-5.5 volts.

    6. If OK, replace the MAP sensor.

    7. If not, repair or replace the wire harness as required

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.

Try pulling idle air control motor off & cleaning it with carb cleaner or throttlebody spray cleaner & port it came out of and see if that helps. If it cures it for a while, then starts doing it again, replace the IAC motor.

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.

Grand voyager problems


I ran into this problem this past winter and after going threw everything I finally solved this problem by taking off the fast idle servo and cleaning behind it with solvant If it gunks up in their it cannot function properly causing it to stall when idiling or coming to a stop. Try this simple solution it will more than likely work for you and keep it from stalling.

Engine stalled after driving through huge puddle


it sounds as tho you might have taken some water in the air intake, take the spark plugs out and turn it over for about 20 seconds then put them back in and try it again, also some easy start through the intake whilst trying to start it after step one may assist it
