    When I start my van it will take a few times for it to catch so it wouldn't die out. Sometimes I would turn the corner and my van would die out.

Do a "Fuel Leak Down Test". It sounds like fuel is leaking past the fuel pressure regulator or a fuel injector when the van is off and sitting for a while. Remove the vacuum hose at the fuel pressure regulator, if you notice fuel inside the hose the regulator is bad and must be replaced.

1990 voyager some time will not turn over battery when you turn key. radio, front & rear wipers, rear gate, also. but ac, window, lights in and out horn, after 1/2 hour or so will start.

Start by removing battery terminals and scraping/cleaning the terminals and connectors thoroughly. Put it back together and try your luck. Some folks like to soak in coca cola since that is all that coke is good for.

Fuel delivery problems?

Okay this vehicle is 27 years old. It may well have out lived its usefulness. Have you thought about getting a newer vehicle that does not cause such problems?

My 1990 plymouth voyager will not start at times, other times it starts just fine, I have replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter but that has not helped , we have taken it to the plymouth dealer in two...

to clarify, are you getting spark (even when it doesn't start?) My vehicle (1990 grand voyager 3.3L) does the same thing. Sometimes starts, sometimes not but may (or may not) in a few minutes or hours, etc.. Always has spark. So I have a "fails to start" of about 33% which means it is unreliable to drive and not be stranded somewhere. I've been chasing this problem for months, but my workaround is to carry ether/starting fluid. Squirting a little into the intake (open the air filter box) and it ALWAYS starts when cranked. Otherwise the van runs fine (strong performance, good milage, etc.) It's just starting without help that's unreliable.

I know the ballast resistor is bypassed when cranking to start (and in the circuit for regular operation). This could be my problem and I'll look into it. The ether is easier to ignite than gasoline fumes.

Vehicle will start & run then will quit

What engine? When was fuel filter changed last, and have you by any chance has fuel pressure tested, preferably when no start?
Tried spraying WD-40 into intake at front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try to start.? Sounds a lot like fuel pump going but lets be sure.

1990 plymouth van will not stay running

Try replacing the Hall Effect Sensor that's underneath the Distributor. It consists of a round disk with a pick-up coil that senses rotation of the distributor shaft. The connection to the coil may become intermittent or open up completely. The engine will shut down when this happens. For a while the problem may be heat-sensitive or affected by vibration.
