    fuel pump and pressure have been tested,

    no fault code comes up..

    but one garage has said two of the injectors are not pumping diesel through quite as strong as the other two..

    this is a very expensive job to replace injectors so need to make sure, can anyone advise, as we dont think this is the problem?

    Hello, i have the same problem. Only it won't start at all at the moment. Fitted a new battery as i have killed the old one by continually starting it. When it did start..... problem with idle going up and down then just cuts out. Does it at roundabouts and junctions. Its a 2002 2.5 diesel Chrysler Voyager.

    Similar issue with my 2.8CRD Voyager. Just under 3 years old and just had it serviced. On receiving it back it the engine cut out when making a left turn - restarted again without a problem. The next day the car suffered from serious power failure and would only drive very slowly. The car was recovered back to the garage who have been unable to repeat or find any fault. We had the same issues about a year or so ago and the dealer was unable to find anything then. The problem went away and obviously has only repeated it self now. The problem is the car is just coming out of warranty. Our dealer has said they will fix it as a warranty fix should they be able to find out what is causing it. They also said they hadn't heard of Voyagers causing a similar problem but it hasn't taking me very long on google to find users with similar experiences...!

    I have the same problem. 2008 Grand Voyager 2.8 CRD Ltd.Engine cut out, power to the rest of the car was OK except the steering which becomes very hard to turn (my wife could not turn the wheel).Almost crashed the car. As a result she wont drive the car anymore. Garage can't find a problem and are waiting for a response from Chrysler Europe. In the mean time it seems like they are not taking the problem seriously.

    I have recently been experiencing the same problem on my wife's 2001 Chrysler Voyager 2.5 TD. She's now very wary about driving it! I've done some basic tests to try and establish the cause of the problem and would be interested to know how my experiences compare with what you're finding.

    The engine will just cut out (sometimes with a minor splutter beforehand). It's almost as though it's run out of diesel (which it hasn't - 3/4 full!). As soon as you turn the ignition off, then on again the engine will start. I've now perfected the art of doing this while the car's coasting, but this is a little dangerous as the steering goes heavy (because there's no power steering when the engine's off) and it's certainly not something my wife would entertain!!

    It always seems to occur within a short period after setting off, and is much worse in the mornings (when everything's cold)

    Someone suggesed that it might be a Turbo Waste Gate problem. Unsure exactly what this is, I tried to test to see if it happened when the turbo cuts in. I tried to drive for a while at revs below 1500 (below where the turbo cuts in) and the problem didn't occur. As soon as I then went up to around 1800 rpm the turbo started and the engine cut out...but it doesn't happen EVERY time the turbo kicks in...and of course at this time the engine's also trying to draw more fuel.

    My instinct is that it might be a partial blockage in the fuel filter, but when the engine gets warm, the problem seems to receed. I suppose when things are warmer, the diesel's a little more viscous and might pass through a filter easier(?) Yesterday, after persevering with a journey of over half an hour, things settled down and I drove normally for a further hour without the problem occurring.

    Another explanation that I've thought of is potentially that there's an electrical problem preventing the fuel pump from pumping diesel to the injectors from the tank at the back of the car. I've tried jiggling about the ignition while the car's driving, and it doesn't replicate the problem...nor does it correct the problem once it's occurred.

    Any advice or tips on what you've done to fix your problems would be gratefully received (

    Many thanks in advance,

    I have a problem with my Chrysler 2.5 diesel 2003, the car shut down completely while my wife was driving, she managed to restart it after a short time, and there has been no problems since, but I took it to a local mechanic who tested it with the electrical diagnostic kit and it showed up low fuel pressure, which he reckons is either a problem with the fuel pump or possibly the engine management system. Anybody got any further ideas?

    I have a Chrysler voyager 2.5crd lx. 2001 year. Similar to those whos engines lost power or cuts out inseat of idleing. Yes it seamed more likely to cut out in cold weather.

    The problem went away after chrysler replaced the Airflow meter.

Hello again,

I commented yesterday that I had the same problem and had done some tests in an attempt to identify the cause.

I contacted a local mobile mechanic, and when I described the symptoms, explained the tests that I'd carried out, and told him of my theory that the fuel filter might be partially blocked he said, "Yes, I'm sure you're right. I've had to do 14 Voyagers in the last month with the same problem!" Hopeful that he was right, but still a bit sceptical because the car had a service less than a month ago in which the fuel filter was listed as one of the replaced parts, I called him out. He came, removed the old filter, commented that "The old filter is really dirty and doesn't look to have been replaced for at least 25,000 miles!" inserted a new filter and the car has been running perfectly since. There's a marked improvement in the way the engine's running (not really surprisingly!) and this reinforces my belief that most (but not all) garages are only interested in taking your money and not doing the work.

For anyone interested, the process of replacing the filter was relatively straight forward and I think (if I ever have this problem again) I will replace it myself. On my Voyager (2001 RHD UK spec 2.5l TD) The fuel filter is located in the rear fuel pump, situated just forwards of the rear axle, on the driver's side of the fuel tank. The filter is removed by using a spanner of about an inch. Note, once the new filter is inserted it's important to prime the engine well before starting it otherwise it will need to be bled (which is apparently a tricky job on the Voyager!) To prime the engine and get fuel through before starting it, you must turn the key in the ignition so that you hear the pump working (eventually the pump noise should stop), and repeat this several times (we did it about 10 times) before turning the key further to turn the engine over. This process makes sure that there's a constant stream of fuel through the new filter and up to the front where the engine is!

That's all the mechanic did, and it worked! Even my wife's happy (of course all things are relative!)

Hope this helps,

    Please Please Please, my relative is having the same problem with her car and Chrysler I believe are withholding information from the public about an underlying design fault, which personally I find abhorent and irresponsible considering these are family cars. Would you please email me with a short summary of your story and the outcome. The more people I can find with the problem, the more likely this wont happen to anyone else.

    Many thanks./

My 2001 chrysler voyager keeps cutting out

Check fuel pressure. on the fuel line you will see this tire air gauge like, turn key without car being on. then see if you have pressure. gas will come out, but make sure it's with pressure. If not that, check feul filters. May be cloged.
