Hi. I had a 2004 Voyager that wouldn't start on a cold morning, or it had started and wouldn't start after a short drive and stop to drop the kids off. After some time and much difficulty in diagnosing the problem, it was suggested that the sensor under the battery was the issue. With a little adjustment of the battery it has never happened again. I thought we had bought a lemon, but the answer to a trouble free 6 years was that simple. Hope this helps.

<quoted text>Hello , dunno if u got sorted yet but i had the same and got it fixed. First attempt was my trusty diesel specialist who diagnosed a leaking injector (£250+vat fitted). However because they and my next mechanic couldnt pull it even with a 14 tonne load applied overnight,i almost had to have head off to have it pressed out OUCH££££££££. But behold there is a god,the second mech being particularly superb looked closer than a replacement and fixed the leak with a homebrew diesel treatment applied directly to the injector......starts every time since early Feb. Cost £40 plus homebrew £a bevvy.
have you got the number for you mechanic because i can't get the injecters out

I have a Chrysler Grand Voyager 2006 2.8CRD and it won't start. When i attempt to turn the car on, the dashboard lights up but the engine doesnt turn over or attempt it even, just this clicking noise. Initially i disconnected the battery a couple of times and reconnected it and it worked. Not this time though, and it is parked at our local hospital and i can't get it shifted. Is there anyone that cvan advisde or help me ASAP ??

sounds like a bad earth or poor connection to battery or worst case ie the starter try cleaning the battery terminals and make sure they are tight

Hi, we have a 2002 Voyager Crd (2.5 turbo diesel). 150,000miles. It has developed a very annoying fault. It refuses to start on the key. It makes no difference to engine or outside temperature. However we live on a hill and it starts instantly when ignition on and clutch let out when in gear. It has had a new battery, engine service new fule filter and injector seals. Even a battery booster pack will not help. Once started the car drives perfectly with plenty of power. It does not blow smoke (except when first firing up ,bluish colour).i suspect it can only be a fuel problem. Does my car have a "water trap" in the fule line.
Hope someone can help > Regards

We have also had 2 new starter motors. Any ideas?????

I have a 2005 model and there is a switch on the sterring column
Sit in the driving seat lean forward and look behind the steering wheel on the streeling column. ie between the dash board and the streeling wheel (on the right hand side)

Hi Graeme, yes they are known for the engine noise, you do get to love it eventually, its even written in the handbooks, as for the judder, thats the all American transmission for you, takes a bit of getting used to, but just enjoy, they are good fun and soooo comfortable on long runs.
If you have the manual gearbox, it takes Automatic transmission fluid, not normal gear oil, and the gears are stiff/tight until it warms up, again thats normal, you will get the hang of it.

You possibly have air getting into the fuel system and allowing the fuel to back syphon to the tank, if its been standing all night and cooled down thats a possibility, once started it does tend to draw the fuel through more easily, also it will put pressure back into the tank assisting the fuel delivery process.
Just a thought as I had the same trouble, and it was air leaking into a finely cracked joint.
You wont always see fuel showing at a bad joint, but its worth having a look especially around the fuel filter and where the feed lines exit the tank and meet the pump.

We have a 1999 G/V at the moment it is overheating, we have checked the oil for water and thats ok, no oil in the water either. there is rusty water/stains on the head by the water fill bottle. The heater fan is not working. Someone told me the head gasket or head has gone how do i find out other than taking it to a garage ?

Hi I have a Chrysler grand voyager 2.8crd 2005 and have had problems over the last few winters. The car struggles to start when it's cold I replaced glow plugs in Dec last yr but that didn't help someone has suggested glow plug relay but don't know if that will help. Also where can I get one other than £45 from Chrysler.
It does smoke a little on first start of the day but then it's fine.
In summer it starts fine.
If I charge the battery every week it helps but when I've had battery tested its ok!
If it was injectors wouldn't I have problems all the time?
Any help appreciated.

Would that happen all year or just in cold weather?

I have starting problems with my 5 year old Grand Voyageur 2.8 CRD - a local London dealership diagnosed cause as fuel filter housing burnt out , connector burnt, egr pipe split and replacement parts include replacement egr valve coming to approx £500 plus vat and labour at £300 plus vat(total just below 1k) No mention of replacement glowplugs
and I wonder whether a replacement egr valve is necessary ? Or what it does- since they are charging £234plus vat for the valve and £55 plus vat for cost of putting it in. Any advice please ?

hi. ive got a 2002 grand voyager diesel 2.5 manual. the trouble im having is that it wont start, only with easy start... its like the fuel is backing up to the tank when engine off. i have to use easy start every time. when its started it runs fine and doesnt miss a beat, but when i turn the engine off and leave it only 2 minutes it will not start... any suggestions greatfully received.. i have had the m-prop valve removed and the car started fine for a few weeks, it said suspect air lock on the diagnosis carried out by chrysler... but now im back to it not startin at all without the easy start. thethankyou...

I have a Grand Voyager 2.5crd 2002 model. An injector 'popped' out when the stud holding it in place snapped. We have put it back and we have no fuel leaks but the car will not start. Turns over OK with no strange noise. The wiring was stretched....any ideas please anyone?
