1991 plymouth voyager 6 clyinder
i was wondering if the asd could be the problem if it is i need to know where it is so i can change or fix
thanks for the info. Was the repair done right after the car stopped running or had the original problem or did the car sit for a while before the repair was done?
sat for about a week and a half and has sat a little longer now trying to find out what is wrong
we parked it and went to use the van and it would not start changed the fuel pump because the pressure was down and not no power to it
ok, so you diagnosed the problem as no fuel pressure or had someone check it for you. Also has the battery gone dead or was it disconnected during this time?
after fuel pump and relay replaced the battery had to be charged
we checked the pressure ourselves
and the fuel pump is not running now no power getting to it or relay
OK, so does the engine turn over?
it tryes to crank but just wont
I should ask does the engine turn over for a short time and then stop turning over?
It will try to crank till the battery goes dead but will not start
OK, the engine needs , as you know, not only fuel but power to the plugs to fire, it also needs the injector to pulse or inject fuel in the cylinders. Sometimes its a good idea to check for fire to the sparkplugs. Have you checked?
getting fire to plugs
Once you check that and you have fire then There could be a problem with the connections or wiring going to the fuelpump. I would check to make sure all connection are good including the grounds is so required.
I will check the connections also is there a automatic shut down i need to know about and if so where would i locate it
If the connections are good making sure there is power to the fuel pump.
Some of these car also have a antitheft system which is what I believe you are speaking of. The ignition key will have a chip made into it which has to be programmed to the vehicle if it has a lose of power it my prevent the car from starting.
please let me know what you find. Thanks.
this model does not have a chip in key this is a new key which we have been using 6 months new ignition and key
ok , so I would recheck the repair that was done to check for a possible cause.
we will check connections and if i need to chat again i will get back to you thanks you
