#3395 of 4276 98 voyager stalling
Nov 09, 2005 (7:17 am)
I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager and it stalls going down the road sometimes. When it stalls, sometimes it will start right up and sometimes it wont. When it wont start, you can turn the key off, turn back on, but it doesnt recognize the last two positions. The oil lite,check engine lite, etc. wont come on and the fuel pump wont run. After a couple of times it will turn over and run.Sometimes it wont start first thing in the morning. Sometimes it will go for days and not act up at all. Ive already replaced the ignition switch. Help.

Hope I can get some help with this. Have 155,775 on original 303 v-6 & 55,775 on tranny. Keep car in top shape--except for peeling paint but that's another matter!
Since last week, car, after 3-5 miles of driving, hesitates, bucks, shudders on acceleration, with engine sounding like its weezing
Had complete tune-up within last 2000 mi & had CAT, MAP sensor & TSA(?) sensor replaced to combat problem but to no avail.
BTW, engine is quiet & still gets great mileage

Have you had your fuel pressure checked? Sounds like either a pump failure or filter problem to me.

I have a 2001 T&C LXI; same thing is happening with it as with your Dodge GC. I saw something about a module. I also read something in Popular Mechanics about a Doge p/u truck with the same problem. A burned out module under the dash on the passenger side.
That is all I know at this time as well. If I hear, I'll let you know. I hope someone has a solution!

Thanks for the imput!!
ORIGINAL FUEL PUMP lasted 13 yrs, 1 mo. 2nd PUMP lasted 16 mos. 3rd PUMP lasted 6 wks. Now 4 wks into 4th PUMP.
TODAY, went back to my local GOODYEAR Service Center which has done majority of recent repairs including FUEL PUMP, CAT, SENSORS, etc. They put in NEW IAC MOTOR.
Car was fine after repair for most of day NOW SAME DAMN PROBLEM again but Hesitation, Back-fire, etc is much less than before.
Any other ideas??
This is getting frustrating with a vehicle that until now, 14 yrs, 8 mos, has been extremely realiable

Some further info
Back to GOODYEAR today-- discovered that coil not putting out proper voltage & 2 cylinders misfiring.
After replacing coil & MAP Sensor again still same problem
CONCLUSION-- bad computer. Outside badly corroded & electrical harness connection not in great shape either
Seems computer is mounted on firewall in such a position as to get constantly soaked in rain or snow
What the hell were the design engineers thinking on this one?
At least the computer is supposed to be less costly than the fuel pump

My 1998 Dodge Van from Canada has had 2 rotted brake lines in the last 5 weeks. no crash, but scary brake failure. Now the mechanic tells me that 13 more lines are at risk. time for a honda.

2001 T&C Limited/80,00kms-I occasionally have the same problem with my ignition key. So far I have been able to just remove the key and insert it with the opposite side of the key. This has not happened for a few months now.

2001 T&C LImited-You are exactly right. Without that longer drain tube installed the condensate is forced back against the firewall where it penitrates the drain opening around the tube and leaks inside on the passenger carpet area. Mine did the same thing until DC techs put the extension tube on the factory drain tube. There is a TSB regaurding this problem and your DC techs should be consulting these factory buletins before trying to make any repairs. I am certain that I won't have the wet carpet issue again.
