1996 Plymouth Voyager Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1996 Plymouth Voyager based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
On higher-mileage vehicles, engine oil leaks from the valve covers and front crankshaft seal are common.
A delay in the transaxle engagement (greater than three seconds) may have multiple causes, including a defective pump, defective internal lip seals, valve body components, park-reverse-neutral-drive lever switch, and the output speed sensor. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the exact cause.
AWD equipped vehicles can show a wide range of transmission problems, often caused by using the wrong-sized and/or mismatched tires. Be sure that all the tires are the same and that all four are replaced at the same time. Dodge recommends tire rotation every 7,500 miles.
If the door lock actuators (integrated into the door latch assembly) are noisy and/or not working, the latch should be replaced. For some model years, the actuator for the sliding door is available separately from the latch.
A malfunctioning switch in the steering column can cause the front windshield wipers to self-activate or not turn off. A failed windshield switch will require replacement.
Spark plug tube seals fail, causing the tubes to fill with engine oil and the engine to misfire. As a result, the engine may run poorly and fuel economy can suffer.
Problems with the wiper parking circuit or wiper motor can cause the windshield wipers not to stop in the proper position.
