20 Most Recent 1998 Plymouth Voyager Questions & Answers

This is one of theose questions that I had to research over and over again for the same problem I had. I had a 1998 voyager and a 1998 caravan ,same van right? The voyagers belts would always come off when I hit a puddle of water hard enough or a fair amount of snow. The caravan was fine never had a problem. What I found out by researhing the problem is that the bottom crank wheel is the problem. For some reason they used two different types for the caravan and voyager. the crank wheel on the caravan actually has deeper grooves on it so the belt does not slip off the wheel as easy. I had to replace the wheel with one from a caravan and it fixed the problem. Another solution is to make sure the plastic housing on the bottom of the engine (splash guard) is intact and is tight to keep the water out. If you have a spot where the water can spray up and hit the belt on the bottom wheel seal it so it cannot hit it anymore. Make sure your belt is tight with the correct amount of play and replace the tentioner if needed.

Best of luck

Can you provide a bit of history on what occurred prior to the light coming on? Did you get your brakes replaced recently? Have you had any other work done on the vehicle, especially any electrical work? Have you had any other dash lights/gauge problems, particularly intermittent operation? Is there any specific event you think might have caused this to occur? Any further info would be of significant help in determining the problem. Thanks.

Any misfiring while its running? Codes? I did have a dodge once that did this and sometimes wouldnt start back up for an hour or so. After throwing lots of $$$ at it turns out map sensor. Good luck.

You could try cycling the key several times before you crank/start it. If that helps, check your fuel system.
Also, check and clean anything to do with idle air system.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

What are the trouble codes? Can be a lot of things, but still sounds like an ignition problem (bad coil pack?).

The reverse plates in the transmission are burned up. There's a coating on the plates that cause them to catch on each other and the gears to function correctly. In your case for some reason the coating has come off and the plates are slipping causing the squeal.

Just disconnect the battery (either side) for a couple of minutes to clear the codes.

I would start by checking fuel pressure to the fuel rail. Just because the pump is running, does not mean that it has enough pressure to fire the injectors. You should have over 40# at the rail.

You simply need to reset light. Go-to autozone or similar and have them turn light off. Then see if light comes back on
