check the water level in your batteries-- after i took off the alternator (which was a job) i had it checked and it was ok-- then i filled the batteries water level it ran fineAnswer
A good thing is there is nothing too tricky under the lid. A bad thing is the time it might take to find the fault. It's a process of elimination. If it cranks the problem is probably not electrical but check the cleanliness and security of all the ground wires in the engine bay especially those between the battery and chassis and the battery/chassis to the engine block and manifold (if fitted). And, once the engine dies, check for a strong spark at the plugs. Coils are known to breakdown when hot.
Rocking the van would suggest fuel. Check there is good airflow around the carb and that any heat shielding for the carb or fuel lines is in place. When the van dies, take off the fuel filler cap. If there is a hiss the cap vent is blocked causing a vacuum. The engine dying as it does can also be a symptom of a partially blocked fuel filter or fuel line, insufficient delivery from the pump or a build up of crud in the carb float chamber. A good trick (if not one already) is to fit, where you can see it, either a clear piece of fuel line or a clear plastic in-line fuel filter. They cost pennies. When the engine dies, a quick check will tell whether there is fuel getting to there at least. Other things to check for are a dirty/blocked air filter. And the outside chance of a failed inlet manifold gasket/ carb to manifold gasket.
It may be the fan belt.
Could be low on ATF. Check it.
3000-5000 miles depending on driving situations
I have a 2000 Plymouth voyager with the check oil light on and the chimes keep going off driving me crazy. I need to know how to reset this also. I haven't found the answer yet, but when I do I will share with you. Please keep me informed also. Thanks!
One cause why a Plymouth Voyager sputters is because the driver may be holding the gear shift button, unnecessary for going through drives 1 to 4. The gear shift button is a safety feature that keeps from reversing while driving.
Same as the Caravan...
The computer detected a malfunction, set a code, and went into limp mode.
I have one with the 3.8 engine. I get about 15-16 mpg. Mostly city /urban driving, heavily loaded with tools and parts.
Check the strut mountings Check springs and shocks they may be worn out
The driving distance from Cambridge, Massachusetts to Plymouth, Massachusetts is 43 miles / 69 km
Sure you can but I would highly recommend against it if you want this engine to last. That is not the correct weight oil for your Plymouth. You should use SAE 5w30 weight. Your Plymouth will get very little lubrication at startup using this heavy oil. This will cause premature engine wear and hard starting in cold temperatures. You are not driving a race car you are driving a van.
Assuming you mean Plymouth, Massachusetts, Google Maps estimates a driving time of about 45 minutes.
Fuel delivery problems such as a dirty fuel filter, a fuel pump going bad, a faulty fuel pressure regulator.
still havent figured out the chugging but the instrument panel issue can be fixed by reheating all of the solder points on the back of the cluster again.
The driving distance from Plymouth, MN, USA to Minneapolis, MN, USA is 13.2 miles.
EPA rated about 19/25 when it was new. Expect about 21 mpg from a good used one with mixed city and highway driving. It is a great combination of room and MPG!
water will splash on the belts [power steering, alternator, etc.], causing them to slip, as if greasy, not turning the pulleys. get new belts.
If someone or something is driving you completely bananas, it is annoying or frustrating you to a very high degree. Another phrase would be that "It's making you crasy" or driving you up a wall."
The shortest time is 3 hours and 12 minutes.
from experience it's 1 of 2 items, 1st is bent half shaft. or 2. tire is starting to separate. this has come from 20 years of driving and having repaired tons of cars over the last 20 yrs its a safe bet.
Why engine stalls on 1993 Chrysler Intrepid while driving and sometimes at stops?
Given is the calculated distance as well as the driving travel time, which does not take into account driving conditions, traffic, changes in speed, etc. The distance between Chicago, Illinois and Plymouth, Massachusetts is about 1,018 miles. The resulting travel time is approximately 16 hours and 30 minutes.
ours does that too, fuel pump wiring apparenty is faulty. sometimes fuse blows, sometimes just dies. check wire from tank back to relay. good luck
The driving distance is about 490 road miles and total driving time is approximately 8.5 hours.
