Question about 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

1997 plymouth grand voyager runs normally but shuts off when it reaches operating temperature, won't start until it cools down. There is a smell of burned rubber, but can't find anything hot or that can be pinpointed from the smell. The ECU was replaced because the van wouldn't run; it has done this since the the ECU was replaced. The check engine light sometimes comes on when the van shuts itself off, and stays on for the next two or three short trips, then doesn't come on until the next time it shuts itself off. The van belongs to a friend; I was just now talking to her and haven't been able to get a scan tool or check for stored codes. Any ideas?

First thing i would try is to carry a can of WD-40 or quick start with me and when it quits and won't start, remove air intake hose at throttle body opening, open throttle enough to give a good spray inside throttle body, release throttle, then try to start it . If it starts and runs momentarily, you have a fuel delivery problem. If not you have an ignition problem. Then you can start troubleshooting from there.
Or you can carry something to test for spark. I just find this way easier. Don't know when/if fuel pump has ever been replaced, but not uncommon for them to work when cool and quit pumping when they get warmed up, even though they sound like they are still working. That's where a fuel pressure test would also confirm, keeping in mind pressure may read good when first started but will drop later when warmed up and engine quits.

My 1997 Plymouth Voyager has air but the heat won't blow when switched on, only cold air.


Start your vehicle and let it reach normal operating temperature. Then, look for heater hoses that run into firewall. Carefully, grab both hose, they should be warm/hot. If only one is hot,could be clogged heater core, T-stat could be bad or mechanical component that allows warm coolant to run thru, is not working properly.
When you change setting inside, your heater and A/C panel, from cold to hot setting, do you hear anything ? There's a flap that opens and closes the coolant passage. This can be a mechanical or electronic operated component.

My 1997 Plymouth grand voyager is over heating.


My 1997 Plymouth Voyager with 40,000 miles on started to overheat and air was not on. Coolant level was perfect. Car hasn't been driven in 6 months, maybe that is why.

My cooling fan does not come on when car is started.both the ac and cooling fan comes on when ac is started


The cooling fan is required to operate when the engine temperature rises above the maximum operating temperature threshold.
After the car is started, it will usually take some time for this temperature to be reached.
Ensure fan runs when fan control temperature sensor switch demands.

Dashboard gauges out


There was a recall years ago on the ignition switch. Something wears and causes the switch to catch and hang a little so it doesn't spring back all the way to run position. The car runs but some of the other contacts are out of line or something. On mine it only happens occasionally and if I nudge the switch backwards just a little bit the dash lights and everything start working as it should. Or just shut it off and restart. Or go ahead and replace the switch itself.

Sounds like the ECM is bad. This is a common problem, when the ECM gets hot there is a solder joint that seperates, it makes contact again once it cools down

Appears to overheat


Have you determined that you're cooling fan is operating? If so, check to see if your coolant level is full. If not, your fan switch is not operating properly.
