Engine Mechanical problem
1999 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles
I have only had the vehicle a short time but it ran good for the first 1000 miles I had it. The first signs of any problems were what seemed like a "hiccup" while driving on the highway. It would feel like I was going over a small bump in the road but there was no bump there. It would happen occasionally. Then it started to stall at stops. At first it would restart with no problems. Now it stalls even on the highway going 65. When I try to restart it it has a strong gas smell and I end up having to put the pedal to the floor to get it started again. At first this would start it right away but now it only occasionally works.I should mention the check engine light is sometimes on and sometimes not. I replaced the coil pack and wires and plugs. The plugs were gas soaked and black as is the tail pipe. The things is when it runs it runs good. Very smooth and plenty of power. No missing or gas smell. Any thoughts?
There is also a new problem with the engine temperature gage. It swings from nothing to running temp and sometimes goes to cold and stays there and the cooling fans are now running when the engine is first started and not even hot.
have the same problem?
