Question From Carr on troubleshooting Chrysler mini van 2003

2003 Chrysler mini van. 3.3 ltr 133600 mi
while driving, engine light came on battery light came on, temperature gauge went off, shifting became sluggish, idle speed went up. It still ran. I turned it off and restarted it. at first engine light only was onand the temperature gauge was working.within 30 seconds temperature gauge went off and the battery light came back on

Response From Carr

Can a PCM be replaced by anyone or is it too technical for the average guy?

Response From Discretesignals

Physically replacing it isn't really hard. Programming it is something that most DIY can't do. You would have to find someone local to program it.

Response From Carr

Ok, i took to mechanic. He replaced two sensors and then the alternator. 750 dollars later still not fixed. So I got a PCM from computer exchange place. Programmed to my vehicle. Followed instructions and installed it. Ran a little rough at first then smoothed out. Drove fine all day. Went to work next day and it happened again. Exactly like before when problem first happened. Any thoughts?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Arggh. Right away when picked up at the mechanic's and did the same thing why didn't you bring it up right then and there before leaving?


Clearly problem not fixed and has run poorly enough for new things to be the issue. IDK what to suggest except get codes again now as if running poorly there are and if not a problem not communicating with the vehicle,


T

Response From Carr

Lol. When picked up at mechanics, I had spent 750 and he still had no clue. He guessed computer which most would have tried at the beginning but quoted me another 750 to fix that. No thank you. I did computer myself

Response From Carr

So I got the codes again. Four this time. 0106, 0118, 1478, and a new one: 1496. I am guessing that the wiring harness has a short, or that five volt reference thing is off. I don't know how to check it or fix it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Poor communication so do think wires and vacuum issues to bad grounds? IDK from here. It worked for a while so on comes the guessing that something in that area just being bumped has the problem.


From some older threads not witnessed was that battery placement was or could be a spot under it with assorted items that could be harmed by location or possible acids from battery? A place to look.


Dang - lotta cooks in this kitchen and no chef seems to be an issue as well,


T

Response From Discretesignals

If you have a P1478 code popping up, it appears you'll need to replace the PCM. You should definitely make sure the PCM has good powers and grounds and that your 5 volt reference isn't being pulled down before replacing the PCM though. Just to be on the safe side.

I guess no one verified 5 volt ref when the problem was happening??

Yes, you should really focus on the 5 volt reference circuit. You might need a DSO to monitor the 5 volt reference to see if it drops out when the problem occurs. Might be able to catch it with a volt meter if the 5 volt ref is down long enough for you to start unplugging sensors one at a time to see if it comes back up. Your going to need a wiring schematic and connector pin out. The fun part is going to be finding the problem with the circuit because many sensors uses that 5 volt reference.

While your monitoring the 5 volt ref, wiggle wiring harness around to see if you can duplicate the problem. Hopefully your replacement PCM doesn't have the same issue as the old one.

Even though this video is of a Caddy with a shorted 5 volt ref, the procedure is the same. :

Response From Carr

So I sent in both computers to have them checked. Turns out neither one was bad. It's not the computer. So much for that idea. Lol. Now I'm guessing it's a short. So where would the short be, and how to find it? That's the question. I am still thinking that the battery light coming on and the temp gauge becoming inoperable is a clue. Wish I personally knew a mechanic worth his salt

Response From Carr

So I just drove it to get gas. Ran fine. Temp gauge worked fine too. Shifted normal. Idle speed correct. Turned it off. Got gas. Turned back on and temp gauge quit, idle increased, shift became sluggish again. Lol. It definitely has something weird going on with that gauge. Gauge working van working, gauge not working van has problems.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Did NOT reread whole now old and long thread but when you have an intermittent much of anything and if when checked all is fine you are in trouble.


Problem must show itself while happening if not something in memory of something which may be lost when checked. Now if you have the most info, tools, equipment and know how and everything works fine when checked what would you do?


I did see that a whole cluster was a common issue was a clue and other than parts tossing at some point you need to or find someone to actually chase wiring one end to the other all over.


Just general on electric snags is that grounds that make whole metal of body grounded lose or break straps here or there and can be the problem for intermittent electrical or any connection of a harness for that matter. This isn't fun work and can use a lot of luck sometimes to know you've actually found and fixed something of the sort,


T

Response From Carr

So I have fixed my problem. No it was nothing that any code showed. It was a short in the wiring harness. The codes made the mechanic I took it to change things that were fine. That is what I was afraid of in the first place. Today's mechanics are typically code driven. Find the code then change out a part. I solved the problem through research. I found others with the same problem who told me where they found their short. Anyway, there is part of the harness that is close to exhaust pipe. It's located behind the power steering reservoir. Turns out that it is common for the wires to melt there. Sure enough. Fixed the insulation which fixed the problem. Hopefully this can help others fix their problems.

Response From Hammer Time

Today's mechanics are typically code driven. Find the code then change out a part.

No, that's not the way it works. The computer has a self monitoring system and the codes alert the mechanic when the computer sees a malfunction. The codes do not tell anyone to change any parts. They describe a specific situation that the tech has to then troubleshoot to find the cause. A car can have a problem that doesn't set a code either so your vehicle may have had multiple issues so today's mechanic do not change parts unnecessarily. They troubleshoot known issues.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Thanks for posting the source of the problem and the fix. Locked for archives for others to view OR you may request it re-opened by any moderator, T

Response From Carr

Ok. I understand what you all are saying. I guess my main complaint was that I listed a list of problems that all occurred suddenly. It didn't seem like anyone even looked at the symptoms listed. Oh well, water under the bridge. I got the readout from O'Reilly auto. Codes are P0118 and P1478 and P0106. Also, the PCM was changed 30,000 miles ago. Just for your info. Thanks.

Response From Hammer Time

The P0118 addresses your temp gauge problem and is likely causing some serious fuel mixture problems also. There is an issue with the temp sensor. Look at the wiring and plugs before changing the sensor.

The P1478 is a problem with the battery temp sensor which is why your battery light is on.

The P0106 is an issue with the MAP sensor. Again, look at the wiring and connectors and the vacuum supply.


See how much help those codes were. They are all likely unrelated too although a damaged wiring harness could effect all 3.

Response From Discretesignals

If you have a P1478 code popping up, it appears you'll need to replace the PCM. You should definitely make sure the PCM has good powers and grounds and that your 5 volt reference isn't being pulled down before replacing the PCM though. Just to be on the safe side.

The PCM incorporates a Battery Temperature Sensor (BTS) on its circuit board.

The PCM uses the temperature of the battery area to control the charge system voltage. This temperature, along with data from monitored line voltage, is used by the PCM to vary the battery charging rate. The system voltage is higher at cold temperatures and is gradually reduced as temperature around the battery increases.

The ambient temperature sensor is used to control the battery voltage based upon ambient temperature (approximation of battery temperature). The PCM maintains the optimal output of the generator by monitoring battery voltage and controlling it to a range of 13.5 - 14.7 volts based on battery temperature.

The battery temperature sensor is also used for OBD II diagnostics. Certain faults and OBD II monitors are either enabled or disabled depending upon the battery temperature sensor input (example: disable purge and EGR, enable LDP). Most OBD II monitors are disabled below 20 °F.

Response From Carr

Not ticked off. I know to get it read. Was hopeful somebody might have a clue before a read out. But hey, who am I to get in the way of everyone's sarcastic wit. Once I have the reading done, well let's see, I know, I can just ask the mechanic who did the read out. Hmmm. Wonder why this site is even up and running? Gee what would we do without computers to tell us what's wrong? Lol. It's funny, cause my brother could at least offer a diagnosis based on vehicles he's had before. That would be sharing experience, but oh well, thanks for the tips. .. get a read out. ..

Response From GC

Your thread title refers to troubleshooting. Taking WAGs is not troubleshooting. Cant even offer a suggestion without some data. Once you get codes read, that MIGHT offer a starting point for diagnosis. Anyone who offers you a guess does not value your time or money. You can have similar symptoms caused by a large number of different issues (refer to DSs guess), thats why testing is required to narrow it down. Parts stores are real good at guessing, good techs are not.

Response From kev2

CARR if you are still following here -
Thiis is the misconception we as technicians face daily - the misunderstanding that a DTC is the corrective action - the 'code' will tell us what to change. That ]is not the case, NO code says change a part- the people at part stores that do the FREE service say buy this part.

If the vehicle overheats, sets a code* for temp sensor high - flawed part store laymen logic-code says temp sensor SO the sensor needs replaced.
It is just the messenger- example- the technician knows to look for the leaking hose


* p011x, P111x etc

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Sorry. It's just that 99.9% of vehicles can't tell you more than a trouble code has been set. Takes reading what it sees and interpreting that info to continue on for the fix.


It monitors so much to do with how the engine runs, emissions, transmission and shifting and another 100 things not at the tip of my tongue. Owner's manuals that NOBODY EVER READS would tell you just what to do if that light is lit.


Codes at some parts outlets can be read for free - chains like Autozone and many others but write #s down not just what it might suggest the exact fix is.


If the vehicle isn't running perfectly it's possible to cause damage to wait. I'm not thrilled with putting too high of techno stuff in a moving machine exposed to the elements that controls the whole show much either as they get older that can be the problem but when it all works right it gives the most accurate adjustments for the temps and loads on a vehicle, the least pollution and best fuel economy too.


This could be as silly as a missing or loose gas cap or who knows till codes are read and the fix determined with that info,


T

Response From Discretesignals

I'd like to invite someone to our shop that believes a scan tool or code reader tells you what exactly is wrong and which part needs replacing. If I popped the datastream up for the BCM or MIC on that thing and told the visitor to tell me what is going on, they would shit their pants.

Response From Hammer Time

Just give them a factory flow chart for a code, any code.

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Listen friend, cars don't talk to people and say, "Ouch my muffler has a boo boo." Scanners and scan tools are not magical devices that tell you what to replace. Being a modern day technician is a cross between a detective, network technician, and electronics engineer. Cars are no where near as easy to diagnose as back in the old days with points and a carbs.

We don't guess because when you guess 80% of the time you'll be wrong. We can't afford to be wrong when we are responsible for repairing other people's vehicles for a living. Heck, the wrong diagnosis could get someone killed in extreme cases.

If your here to troll the forum, your not going to be here very long. If your here looking for good advice and pointers on which direction to go to solve your problem, this is a great place.

Response From Hammer Time

This is one of those guys that thinks that magic little box that you plug into the car tells you exactly how to fix everything. Don't need a mechanic if you got one of the magic boxes.

Response From Hammer Time

Probably a bad dash cluster. they have a lot of problems.

Response From kev2

scan for codes EVEN if the CEL now is off

Response From Carr

First of all. Check engine light is on and stayed on, second, anyone can say scan codes. I was looking for an experienced mechanic who might have an idea what would cause the symptoms. Wow

Response From kev2

Checking for codes is the first step in troubleshooting.
GUESSING is NOT the way professionals approach an issue- that would be the crystal ball, psychic type.
I will add the collective experience is likely 25years PLUS per site contributor.

So you are unsure why/how the Dash cluster could cause rough shifting and high idle?

In laymans terms the PCM (computer) is seeing an issue and acting accordingly.
So how do we determine WHAT the PCM is seeing/reacting to ?
THAT would be getting the DTC's -
Need ideas on doing that?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Quote"First of all. Check engine light is on and stayed on, second, anyone can say scan codes. I was looking for an experienced mechanic who might have an idea what would cause the symptoms. Wow "


Gee - you sound ticked off that the vehicle is warning you to CHECK CODES and upset about it. 100s of areas possible and reading them narrows it down so that is the professional response to you inquiry or just give up and send you down the road,

Response From Discretesignals

Hell, I take a guess. Faulty BCM, faulty MIC, wiring problem, terminal tension issue, faulty ignition switch, loose fuse, faulty power distribution box, poor grounds, EMI, excessive alternator AC ripple, communication bus problem .... Take your pick and let us know what you figure out.

Response From Carr

Dash cluster? How could that cause rough shifting and high idle?

Need help asap...major oil leak,possible bad cat/converter

Question From dolejaly on Need help asap...major oil leak,possible bad cat/converter

1996 Chrysler Sebring jxi-2.5......I have 2 questions, but will start with the first problem.(they might run hand in hand, not for sure) I had a slight oil leak for over a year, maybe added a quart in every 2 months...Now I noticed when the car was in the garage a spot on the floor about 6x6 inch, which seemed to be towards the front of the motor(judging by where the car was sitting)...for the past week...I noticed this, now I am having some other issues possibly catalytic converter plugged or gone bad...We have torn down to a certain point trying to find why the car was having no power when accelerated issues, which was checking all plugs/wires which one spark plug was fouling out due to oil covered, then cleaned and put the motor back together, now there is a trail of oil leaking, majorly, could we have blown the rear seal if the cat/converter was bad or plugged? Was told to add bars leak to stop the leak, but leary on that...also could the valve cover gaskets be leaking and got worse as well due to the same issues of cat/converter/.

My main reason all of this started was when I accelerated from a dead stop the car didn't have hardly any power(tranny is fine) Best way to describe this is somewhere between the motor and tranny wasn't getting a good connection. My Car in the past month has been getting louder, which I did have a water hole incident with the car a little over a month ago as well as the drain plugs on the car inside didn't drain and the floor boards did fill up with water about 2 inches when it rained(got drains unplugged)...since trying to narrow down the no power issue is where we now have the major oil coming out from somewhere...

Could a bad Cat/Converter cause no power when accelerating from dead stop?
Can a bad cat/converter cause to blow the main rear seal?
Should I attempt the bars leak for the oil leak?
Running no cat/converter do any harm to the motor(02 sensor before cat/converter)?
If the original oil leak was from the valve covers could it made it worse due to bad cat/convert?

Response From Discretesignals

Could a bad Cat/Converter cause no power when accelerating from dead stop?

It could, but you would also have lack of power anytime you accelerate from any speed. You need to check for excessive exhaust back pressure.

Can a bad cat/converter cause to blow the main rear seal?

To blow a seal out there would have to be excessive crankcase pressure. Check the operation of your PCV system and make sure you don't have excessive crank case pressures. A restricted catalyst affects engine manifold pressure, so that could affect the operation of the PCV system.

Should I attempt the bars leak for the oil leak?

Absolutely not. You need to determine the source of the leak. You may need to get the vehicle in the air and clean off the underside if it is really oiled up. Watch to see where the leak is originating from. Leak sealer won't seal rotating parts.

Running no cat/converter do any harm to the motor(02 sensor before cat/converter)?

It won't harm post or pre cat sensors. It is against federal law to remove a catalyst from a vehicle. If you live in an emission inspection state, you'll fail. The check engine light will be on for catalyst efficiency codes.


If the original oil leak was from the valve covers could it made it worse due to bad cat/convert?


Once again you need to check for excessive crankcase pressures and be sure the PCV system is operating correctly.

Response From dolejaly

We had changed the pcv valve, cleaned fuel injectors(actually my nephew is the one working on my car for me).

How it all started. a week a half ago I noticed the car was using more gas than usual, then while going up hill it would have a hesitant, didn't have the normal power as usual. The car had also been increasingly sounding louder and kind of a rattle sound from exhaust. Then a few days ago, while at a stop sign it was bogging down and the rpms was a little higher in between shifting into its gears. Once in drive it was fine...then 2 days ago, went to leave and it hardly had any power it was really bogged down(severe motor oil leak was not present yet)...It did have a funny smell to it and there was smoke coming off the motor at this time...

I was told it could be the cat/converter....But, checked other things first, plugs, wires, sensors, vacuum leaks, etc....Noticed oil puddle on garage floor approx(6x6 in)....was told to tap on converter sometimes they are just plugged, done that and started the car(has always started fine and idles, just not much power when in gear)...ran the car down the road, it seemed fine for a couple of minutes then done it again with the bog down. Pulled back into garage and noticed a trail of oil following...Now its leaking major oil and still having no power problem. Was told to use bars leak which should seal any leaks, also recommended "Lucas"...

Which I am wondering there doesn't seem to be much air pressure out the exhaust now since tapped on it, actually some rattling from the cat/convert now....could pressure caused to back up and blow a seal?

Although the puddle was towards the front of car motor, I guess it looks like it initioated from rear part. I'm still wondering valve covers, being I think that is where the small leak has always been. I also was told that my oil sending unit 2 yrs ago was why my oil light would come on and off, usually on while at a stop sign and once moving the light would go off....

Should we try removing the cat/converter first before doing anything with the leak in case pressure is what caused the leak to go so severe?

Response From Discretesignals

Check the operation of the PCV system. Even though you replaced the PCV valve, that doesn't mean the system is working or you have excessive crank case pressures from ring problems going on.


Connect a vacuum/pressure gauge to the dipstick tube. With the engine running there shouldn't be any pressure building up in the crankcase.
Plug off the vent for the PCV system and make sure you have vacuum building up in the crankcase with the engine running.

To check for a restricted catalyst look at the information in this article:

You may want to check the fuel pressure regulator, if bad it can allow fuel into the crankcase and thin the oil and caure a increase in leakage . It also affects fuel presssure to the injectors causuing prefomace problems.Pull dip stick and see if oil smells like gas .

Response From dolejaly

No gas smell in the oil, checking on a couple of things right now....I will keep you guys updated...I'm still wondering why the motor would bog down so bad, then now have a major oil leak...if it is thecat/converter....

Response From dolejaly

can the resinator on the down pipe go bad ?

Response From Discretesignals

It's a possibility, but rare. If you read the article is states how to check for exhaust restrictions. Do some testing and maybe the "what ifs" will be answered.

UPDATE: Well what my nephew thought was the cat/converter and removed it and took it to the auto place, come to find out whom ever had this car before me already removed the cat/converter..and that was another muffler....So now that theory is ruled out, but this muffler did have some small holes in it....

Now comes the stranger part is...as I explained in my earlier post that it was losing oil, but as he got some things back together(exhaust) to see if it was still bogging out and he checked the oil levels and they were fine...But it is impossible being we hadn't added any oil back into it yet....How can that happen? we made sure it was defintely oil and it is...nothing else like gas or anything else in there.....He is giving it a rest tonight and working on it again tomorrow.....We are going to look into the 02 sensors, but we keep reading that it has 4, then 3 then 2....How many does it have and can they be tested first?

Response From re-tired

There is only 2 ways a crankcase can magically refill itself . water or gas . water /coolant makes the oil turn milky. only gas will blend without color change . my moneys on either t\he regulator or one or more injectors sticking open.

1997 dodge ram 1500 v6:

doesn't idle, sometimes doesrn't start, might be battery.

1985 chrysle yorker

won't idle until warmed up...black smoke when it starts, loss of power.

EDIT: ok, i was short on time earlier and was rather vague....sooooo, heres the full problems......

1997 dodge, standard:(this is for a friend of mine..need to fix asap....please help..)

alright, one day the truck just suddenly wouldn't crank when you turned the key. All it did when when turning the key was click. He had the battery tested, because this had happened once before, and they said the battery was still good. next day, he had o go to work, but when he started his truck, it wouldn't ide, he had to feather the gas to keep it running. he brought it to my house so i could try to help figure out the problem. when he got to my house, he shut off the truck and came inside. when he tried to start the truck for me to hear it....1st time he tried, it started, but it sounded real bad, like it was barely struggling to keep running, he let off the gas and it died...2nd time it made a click ing noise, after that it did nothing. My battery charger doesn''t have clips, just exposed wire. we took the battery cables off, put the wire on etc....the battery charger for some reason wouldn't turn on. we removed it and put the cable back on. he turned the key and it started without any problem and idled, and it sounded just fine. What would cause this to happen, we need to prevent this from happening, so he can get to work..thanks..



1985 chrysler new yorker, 4 cylender, 2.6l, automatic: (this is for me..not in any hurry for this one, trying o get my car running)

when i start my car and the engine is not already warmed up, it barely runs. A black and white mix of smoke comes out the muffler and white smoke with a little bit of blck smoke mix in comes from the back by the exhaust manifold. I have already checked the seal, the guy i bought it from had a new one on it so it was still good. When I put back on, i torqued it to what the manual said(don't remember..i think it was 13ftlbs?..). I have to push the gas pedal to the floor to keep the car running and it uses alot of gas. When it warms up it will idle just fine. When I drive it, it doesn't much power. I have to floor it to really start getting up to even 20-30 mph. How can I fix this problem? thanks..

For the truck:Get a voltage meter/tester ready and begin at the battery - cable from the terminal to the body mount location,visually inspect,check resistance while jiggling wire to check for internal corrosion,repeat this proccess for the battery +12v cable from the terminal to the starter sylenoid and also check the 12v capabilities of the wire(s) now follow that set of wires from your sylenoid to the power distribution box and alternator these are the wires that if damaged or corroded will cause that to happen,replace any that are bad,check the values of these wires @ idle (be very cautious of the alternator fan and other moving parts) and see if everything is getting the main 12 volt when it needs it.Also does your check engine light illuminate at any time?

Your friend’s truck I’m not sure; could be so many things and from this end they all would be just guesses. All I can say about the no crank is to clean all cable connections and not just the battery terminals but the other ends of the cables where the positive connects to the starter and the negative to the engine block. After that; without checking myself; possibly a dead spot on the starter’s armature?

For your 2.6 Mitsubishi it sounds like the choke pull-off is not functioning. The pull-off is designed to crack the choke open approximately a 1/16” as soon as the engine starts. It does this by using engine vacuum applied to a diaphragm, which pulls on the choke mechanism, overcoming choke spring tension.
This diaphragm likely has a hole in it or the vacuum passages are plugged. Replacing this diaphragm is no easy job and if not done carefully you will damage the carb. I suggest taking it to someone who is familiar with this to have it checked and replaced if need be. The main body of the carb is plastic and can crack as your removing the heat shield’s rivets and shield to gain access to the pull-off assembly housing.
This choke also uses engine coolant to heat the choke’s by-metallic spring. The passageways that feed the warmed coolant to the choke were bad for plugging up with crud, stopping the coolant flow. No hot coolant and the choke will stay on forever, causing the engine to run overly rich. (black smoke)
