To replace the power window motor:
1. Remove inside door panel, and locate the motor.
2 Unplug the motor, drill out the rivets that hold it in, then you can remove it.
3. the new motor may come with fasteners to install it, otherwise use 1/4 - 20 nuts and bolts to attach the new motor.

Testimonial: "Thanks Guru. When I saw those rivets, I thought it wouldn't be possible. Thanks brother."
Check to see if the fuel pump is kicking in,
when you turn the key on without starting the van you should hear it kick on for about 2 seconds,
It could be...
A clogged fuel filter...
Blown fuse for the pump..or bad pump relay..
Bad fuel pump

if your mini van has a 4.3 litre engine v6, when you turn the key on you should be able to hear the electric fuel pump start. the fuel pump is inside the gas tank,if you hear the pump you might want to change the fuel filter. The thing about computerized engines and a throttlebody is that you need a fully charged battery to start work with.

There was a recall on the throttle body blade on the 4.3 a few years back for the throttle body to stick in the close position. Yours being 9 years old makes me think that there not going to do anything for it but give you the solution to the sticky throttle blade.
The solution was to change the blade. You can try cleaning the throttle body blade by spraying throttle body cleaner in to the barrel of the throttle body. If you look down, you'll see the carbon build up and it may just need and good cleaning.
If that does not work, you can buy a new Throttle body blade which is only held on by two screws on the throttle blade shaft.
Start with cleaning the blade and throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Just follow the instruction and you'll be fine.
Keep me posted and good luck.

Yes it could but also check under the hood because it is a very common problem for a vaccumm line to come unhooked causing this problem. Hope this helps, Allen, swiftautorepairs.com
