Chrysler Voyager SE: , I've a problem with my Chrysler Voyager

Customer Question

Hi, I've a problem with my Chrysler Voyager. My car has lost power so it's difficult to accelerate from stop starts etc. Plus I find I have to constantly drive in 3rd gear as there's not enough power when using the top two gears.

Hello and Welcome!
I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry.
Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.

Do you have the check engine light on? or any other faults displayed on the instrument cluster?
Did this problem start suddenly, or gradually?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The only light on is the ABS light which has been checked has been found to be an electrical fault. The problem just happened, it wasn't a gradual thing.

Hello Ben,

Do you have any other symptoms? (rough idle, hard to start, hesitation)?
or only the poor engine performance?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Just poor engine performance.

Hello Ben,

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

I would start by checking the spark plugs. Then i would clean the crankcase breather valve, and i would clean the EGR valve. As all these would cause poor performance.
However, if the problem persists, i would check the data from the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor, and the oxygen sensors. As these can also cause this, but they usually trigger a fault code (and the check engine warning light). But these require a scan tool to check.

Kindly get back to me with your findings, so we proceed accordingly.
