#4063 of 4276 Noisy Chrysler Grand Voyager
Jun 23, 2006 (1:14 pm)
I a proud owner of a 2000 Chrysler Gr.Voyager 2.5 turbo-diesel since new. It's popular in Europe diesel versions. The engine is a noisy Italian V.M. unit. I say noisy because I think it is not normal even for a diesel. I know all Turbo-diesel 1996/2000 models make such noise. However 2001 CRD and later models are much more quiet. Is it because of common-rail injection or the noise is due to other system eg. gearbox?Any suggestions?

Well we changed the fuel pump, not that, and my brother put fuel in something on top of the engine, to see if it would start then, and no luck. He said it was getting fuel. Could it be the timing belt? This van studdered when it would idle for about a month before it finally died and wouldn't start. link title Any suggestions??? Thanks, Leisa

On wednesday went out to try starting the minivan and it would turn over and run for a second and then immediately shutoff - also noticed that dashboard lights were out and that speedometer and fule gauge would not work either. Took vehicle to repair shop, they couldn't determine the issue of the problem, but after messing around have the vehicle running(not for sure how long), but all dashboard lights remain out as well as fuel gauge and speedometer. Any thoughts on what could be wrong and a possible solution to fix?

Does your caravan have a security system?
I have a 98 Town and Country LXI w/ 137,000 miles
(2nd owner). After three attempts,( the car starts but shuts itself off after a half-second... ) the security system needs to reset. IF left for an undetermined time...maybe an hour, maybe 12 to 14 hours ( my last couple of experiences) it will miraculously, restart. It appears to be associated with locking the vehicle. Hitting the switch from the inside to lock the car causes or appears to be the culprit. I was advised if the key is used to lock from the outside, it shouldn't activate the security system. It is very bizarre, but this has been a nuisance for me over the last 6 months or so. Replaced the starter, foolishly, but was hoping it was a fix. Not.
I still need answers.

Yes, I have a Security System - The repair shop thought that the malfunction was asociated with this, but was unable to determine where, suggested I take to dealership, but they can't fit me in for about a week, need vehicle before then!
#4068 of 4276 02 GC Check Engine Light

My 02 GC with 42K miles has a check engine light come on. My local Goodyear repair shop checked it and cleared it. It came back on after about 100 miles. Anyone have similar problem?

Yep, been there done that. The fault that is causing the light to come on is still there. Try turning the ignition to the on position, all the way till the dash warning lights come on but before it starts. Do this in the following pattern - on - off - on - off - on then watch the odometer and you will get a trouble code. It will start with a P------- tell us what you get and perhaps we can ID the source of the fault. You will have to get whatever is not working fixed inorder for the light to stay off.

Codes are P1684, P0442, and P0455. I went to Allpar.com and found they are "Driver 5 Line 4", "Evap system smalll leak detected", and "Evap system leak detected".But what do these mean?

I just had this fixed on our 2001. There was a cracked line going to the charcoal cannister. Whether this is your problem or not, the codes indicate a malfunction of the evaporative control system. There are a variety of possible sources of the problem but if you are looking to do it yourself, do a visual check from underneath to see if anything is broken, disconnected or cracked.

Where is this sensor on a "94" 3.3 DGC? My book says I have one, but I can't find it.
