My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If the fuel pump pressure is lower than it should be, it may impact the vehicle’s ability to start and run efficiently. However, 3 lbs. shouldn’t be the only item that may be faulty on your Voyager. You may want to check out the mass air flow sensor, or have the fuel injectors and throttle body cleaned. You might also have an electrical issue that’s causing the lower fuel pressure, or excessive debris trapped in the fuel tank, which might be causing your engine issues. If you are continuing to have trouble, please contact one of our local professional mechanics to complete an inspection of the hard start.
