Custom car parts are widely available in the net so buyers will not have difficulty in choosing. Common add-on car accessories are body kits, ground effects, spoilers or wings, fenders and other body styling parts.
Auto body kits usually come together with ground effects and wings. Ground effects kit is used to achieve a muscular lowered ground look. It is done by reducing the amount of air pressure under the vehicle to allow the normal amount of pressure above the vehicle to exert a downward force on the vehicle and thus pave way to a lowered ground look and tighter grip on the road.
Spoilers or wings are also used to achieve the same purpose. For ordinary street cars like Plymouth Grand Voyager, its main function is for added sporty style and look but for racing applications, spoilers serve as an accessory and car performance part since it provides smooth and easier turning as well as greater road grip. Some types can make the car faster without changing the car's weight. The right type of spoiler must be mounted on street cars so as no to affect its performance and driving dynamics. Too big or too heavy spoilers can add weight and thus may affect the car's speed. Fender flare is the elevated portion of the area on the vehicle's side commonly known as the wheelwell. Urethane, plastic and fiberglass are the commonly used materials for Fender flares. Try these add-ons to your Plymouth Grand Voyager and see the difference that it will make.

Why does my Plymouth Grand Voyager get stuck in low gear after minutes of normal driving and start spewing out engine codes?
This kind of stop and go behavior is most likely being caused by a transmission that needs its soft parts to be rebuilt. The cost of a transmission rebuild including a valve cover gasket could be considerable, but for practicality's sake, it's still cheaper than making a payment on a new vehicle.
The timing cover in my engine is leaking. What could be the cause?
The engine has a timing chain. The oil leaks usually originate from the front crankshaft pulley seal in the timing cover (a relatively easy fix). Lastly,make sure that the valve covers are not leaking (approximately 3 hours if both gaskets need to be replaced).
My van won't crank at all. On some days, it starts but dies within seconds. Why so?
A connection on the starter that is improperly seated (coming from the battery) could be the reason the engine is not cranking or dying shortly after starting. Plastic needs to be ground off the cable terminal so it can sit flat and flush.
A Grand Voyage with the Plymouth Grand Voyager
Introduced to the market in 1987, the Plymouth Grand Voyager is the long-wheelbase version of the Plymouth Voyager. The Plymouth Voyager may refer to either two vans created by Chrysler for its Plymouth brand—first is the 1974-1983 variant. This particular Voyager was a rebadged version of the full-size Dodge Sportsman van. The other one is the 1984 minivan that was sold alongside the Dodge Caravan. Here’s a quick look at the Plymouth Grand Voyager and its transformations during its run.
First generation: 1987-1990
In 1984, Chrysler released is brand-new minivan under its S platform—the Plymouth Voyager. The S platform was derived from the K-platform, so the Voyager notably shared a lot of components with K-cars. Aside from that, they also used the same materials for the interiors, and this gave the Voyager minivan its car-like ambiance. In 1985, the Voyager was part of Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list, making it a hit among consumers. A long-wheelbase version in the form of the Plymouth Grand Voyager was made available to the market after three years in 1987. This version of the model had more cargo space it was sold in two trims—SE and LE. The Voyager minivan, on the other hand, was offered in three trim levels—base, SE, and LE. Both the Voyager and Grand Voyager were known for their standard safety features, which included three-point seatbelts for front passengers and side-impact reinforcements for both front and rear outboard positions. The Voyager was marketed through several advertisements, which featured celebrities like magician Doug Henning and singers Tina Turner and Celine Dion.
Second generation: 1990-1995
The Plymouth Voyager welcomed the 90s with major upgrades and redesigns. For instance, it was furnished with new sheet metal that gave it a more aerodynamic look. The Grand Voyager, on the other hand, was furnished with new, lower-costing powertrain. Its 3.3 L V6 engine and 4-speed automatic transmission was replaced with a 3.0 L V6 engine 3-speed automatic transmission. The 5-speed manual transmission was also paired with a new 2.5 L engine compared to the old 2.2 L engine. A few years after in 1994, a new 3.8 L V6 engine, which could churn out up to 162 hp was made available for the LE trim of Grand Voyagers while the 3.3 V6 was upgraded to make it more powerful.
Third generation: 1996-2000
The third generation of Voyagers underwent a complete makeover, making it more modern with Chrysler’s new cab-forward design. It also utilized the NS platform, which featured sliding doors at the driver’s side—a first for all minivans. This upgrade put the model once again in Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list. During this time, both Voyagers and Grand Voyagers were sold in two trim levels only—base and SE. They also featured the new Easy-Out Roller Seats system, which made folding rear seats much easier. In 1999, the Plymouth brand of Chrysler met its end, forcing the Grand Voyager to end its run.
