    yes i replaced the pressure switch, it has about 160k miles and its not leaking. funny thing is that this didnt start happening untill i changed the oil, i did use all the correct parts, i did use the right oil, i also added zmaxx engine treatment. since the problem wasnt solved, i used a higher viscus oil and still have issue. so i really hope its just a simple cleaning it needs.

The Oil Pump is behind the Crankshaft Sprocket which does involve the Timing Chain.
You will have to remove the: Timing Chain Cover, Timing Chain and Crankshaft Sprocket to gain access.

Let me know if this helped...

    My adding a Comment had a technical issue on this website. I'm posting it again on this Page.



    Click on the following two (2) direct, FREE Links. (You may have to copy & paste the link-sorry)



    This 1st Link is the Photo of the Oil Pump that you will be replacing:

    http://contentinfo.autozone.com/znetcs/p..." target="_blank" rel="nofollow" http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog...



    This 2nd Link are several Diagrams for the 2.5L and 3.0L. Yours' is the 3.0L. Go to Diagram G96l14801.
    http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_infor...

    As you can tell from these two Links - the Crankshaft Sprocket will have to be removed to gain access to the Pump. You will also have to remove the Timing Belt Tensioner as well. Once these two are off: the old Oil Pump is unbolted and removed. The new Oil Pump is installed.

    If you have any additional information or questions: feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!

    Well the reason I'm replacing it is because, my oil pressure guage keep going down to nothing as soon as I make a turn, but is fine as long as I don't turn and my foot is on the gas. I already replaced the sending unit. So now I think it's a bad pump or clogged intake tube screen. What do u think?

    Timmy;
    Based on your Year (1992), you are on the right path. How many miles on this??
    I am assuming there are no leaks from the Oil Pan, Valve Covers, Crankshaft Seal or Front Gaskets??
    BUT, before jumping to the Oil Pump ($100 ) and Gaskets ($$)::
    The Oil Intake Screen is where I would start to keep down cost.
    Even though you hace changed the Oil regularly, when was the last time you cleaned the inside of the Oil Pan? If you have not done this for a while - literally sludge will build-up on the bottom of the Pan - restricting flow.
    Remove the Oil Intake and clean with spray Carb Cleaner.
    You state you replaced the "sending unit". Are you referring to the Oil Pressure Switch? IF NOT: This Switch or their wiring harness often malfunction.
    Keep me Posted on your progress...

Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
Add fresh oil to the new pump to prime it. Check the alignment on the new oil pump drive with the crankshaft/intermediate crankshaft timing.

  • Step 2 Install the new pump carefully, rotating it back and forth a little to make sure it has full surface contact between the pump and the engine block.
  • Step 3 Hold the pump in its sealed position and put in the pump mounting bolts, tightening them to 15 ft-lb.
  • Step 4 Put the engine oil pan back in and refill the crankcase. Start the engine and check for leaks on the parts you replaced

    Is there any way i could start my 1998 voyager if fuel pump needs to be replaced?


    yes, put in a temparary electric fuel pump and it will start and go, it only has to be wired to the battery with two wires and petrol hoses, you can probably get one from any wrecker.

    How do I remove oil pump on 2000 Plymouth voyger


    The oil pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
    A oil pump is usually located in the oil pan. If you want to change the oil pump and replace it with a new one, roll up your sleeves and get ready for some dirty work.
    The procedure to remove oil pump is as follows:--
    • Drive your vehicle up onto ramps or lifts so you have room to work as you pull out the oil pump. You could also use a jack, but make sure you brace the front wheels so they don't roll. In addition, set the emergency break firmly into position so the car doesn't roll.
    • Remove the engine front cover then drain the engine oil and take out the oil pan. It is under the engine and looks like the bottom of the motor.
    • Unscrew the oil pump mounting bolts with a wrench and proceed to remove the oil pump itself by pulling it down and out of the engine. Avoid getting any contaminants into the oil pump assembly while removing.
    The Water pump removal procedure for Plymouth Voyager 2000.
    The water pump is the heart of the Plymouth Voyager's cooling system, circulating the coolant. When the water pump is faulty, it can cause serious damage to the engine of your Plymouth Voyager.
    • Disconnect the negative battery cable.Place a drain pan underneath the radiator. When the engine is cool, drain the cooling system from the radiator into the pan.
    • Remove the right inner splash shield and the accessory drive belts. Support the engine underneath and remove the right motor mount with the bracket.
    • Take off the front cover and remove the timing belt along with the timing belt idler pulley. Also remove the camshaft sprockets, the rear cover to the timing belt and the alternator with its bracket.
    • Loosen and remove the bolts to the water pump and remove it from the engine.Install the new water pump after inserting a new o-ring gasket. Tighten the bolts to 105-inch lbs. Make sure that the pump can move freely by rotating it by hand.
    • Replace all components in reverse order. Tighten the camshaft sprocket bolts to 75 foot pounds and the timing belt idler pulley to 45 foot pounds.
    • Refill the cooling system with coolant and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks when it reaches normal operating temperatures.

    Loud noises coming from the cooling system could be a sign that your water pump needs replacing. A leak in the coolant may also be an indicator. You can expect that a water pump will need to be changed every 70 to 100 thousand miles or so in a Plymouth Voyager vehicle.
    Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    92 voyager check gage light


    That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

    yes check your fuel pump itself, if your fuse/relay is good then your fuel pump might be going out, especially if its your original being a 92 god bless
