If the engine light is on you can take it to an Autozone and they will diagnose the problem for you.
I also have a 99 Quest that is now pushing 180k with no mayor problems so far.
#80 of 164 Loping idle, "missing" at speed
Jul 05, 2011 (6:38 pm)
I have a great '94 Quest GXE. Has run like a top for the 4 years I've owned it. 170k, it lopes and runs as though it's missing a few cylinders. It did this for a few blocks, then smoothed out. Again, and smoothed out. Today I started it, and it did this all the way to the dealer. Of course, they want to sell me a bill of goods I may not need. What is causing this?

Check your air filter. I was experiencing the same scenario with my Quest. Driving along and then poof I would start to lose acceleration as if gas was not getting to the engine.
The dealer explained that the engine is having difficulty breathing. He checked the air filter and it was wet and debris was blocking the air intake. He said if the engine doesn't get enough air, this can shut the engine down, activate the engine light, make car repair guys perplexed as to the problem and then they start changing spark plugs and fuel pumps when all along it was the air filter!!!!!

I have 213k miles on a 99 Quest and have never had to replace a distributor. If you are using refurbished parts, then anything is possible.

#87 of 164 97 quest heater/loosing coolant
Oct 08, 2012 (6:33 am)
hi i was wondering if you could help me out here i have a 97 quest with the 3.0,it has been leaking coolant for a year now,when it steams it comes from under the hood and wheel wells.i suspect the heater core or hose but cant get my big head in there to see anything!i have heard about plenums and such but i guess my question is this,is there an easier way to diagnose the problem myself?pressure test maybe?and just how difficult to replace the heater core in the quest?the water levels stays at a level where it will not overheat unless sitting at a light for awhile,we add some coolant about every few weeks.it does not steam every time but definiatly has a wicked smell.this is a terrific vehicle and it does have sentimental value.thanx for any tips or advice or help i may receive.

When it comes to leaks I tend to leave it all to the mechanics. These things are very difficult to trace unless the problem is right there in front of your eyes. As a matter of fact my van has had a slight oil leak for quite some time that not even my mechanic has been able to trace.
Usually a dye is added to the coolant in order to trace the leak/leaks and then take it from there.
