Why does my Plymouth Voyager stall and restart after it sits awhile?


Answer by  Tony07 (64)

Plymouth Voyagers are known to have this problem. Check the wiring harness that goes over top the transmission bellhousing. If you wiggle the harness while it is running it should cut the engine off. Try to support it better by applying zip strips or electrical tape to the harness and attach it to something off the transmission.

I have to use the "cause it's old" answer but this is probably the case. You may have either a bad starter or a bad spark plug.


Answer by  Advizor (230)

There is a very good chance the crank position sensor is starting to fail. When this sensor gets hot it no longer sends the correct electrical signal which shuts down the ignition system. It's a safeguard to prevent damage to the engine if the timing belt breaks or stretches.

Well this sounds like you have an overheating issue of some critical components. When you let it set it cool down and starts working again. Typically the ignition components are what suffers from this. I would check to see if anything is getting too hot under the hood.

there is a good change that is has something to do with you're oil. and maybe because you have an older model they are known to stall when they have not drove in a long time. go to a garage for a check maybe there is a bigger cause.

This can be caused by a few different things. It's most likely the fuel pump. Try tapping the gas tank when it stalls see if that makes it start.

Problem seems to be with wire harness, thats over top the transmission bellhousing. Use electrical tape to the harness and attach it to something off the transmission.

The ASD stands for Auto Shut Down, and it controls both spark and fuel.getting hot will shut down,some due to different idling times and restart at more predictable intervals.

You will have to take it in to get it checked, that would be the only way you will know what is wrong with it. There could be something wrong with the car. You should have it checked out now, before it is too late, and there is something seriously wrong with it.
