Dying

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Dying

I have a 1995 Plymouth Voyager van. The van was running perfect last night. The first time I started it this afternoon the van kept dying everytime I reduced speed, stopping at a stop sign, going around a corner. I would have to stop completely and restart the car and then it would go until I reduced speed again. It is an automatic. What could be wrong?

try this.

start it up. run it at high rpms for a couple of minutes (2000), and then let off the gas and see if it stalls. if not your overdrive is probably not disengaging. did you recently have a fluid change? maybe they put the wrong tranny fluid in it, should be atf+3.

try locking it in 3rd or 2nd gear (if it is a 3 speed) and go as fast as you feel comfortable. then slow down and see if it still stalls. if it doesn't you probably have a bad lock up torque converter/solenoid or something along those lines.

Is it a 3 speed or a 4 speed, maybe i can help you out more.

Clean the throttle body & see what that yields.

2 idle air control valve is defective
3 egr valve leaking or stuck open
4 vacuum leak check vacuum hose's

lets not forget he never said there was no check engine light? where is this guy anyways, here we are eager to help and he's skipped town. i've never understood that type of person, posting their question on a forum and then vanishing "like a fart in the wind"
