there could be several reasons for this type of problem. the engine is controled through main computer(ECM) and the sensors assocciated with it. most often times a hesitation is commonly a idle issue and that would be monitored by the TPS ( throttle position sensor) if this is beginning to fail it sends faulty reradings to the computer and the computer tries to compensate and sometimes either leans or richens the fuel air mixture cause and effect is a engine stall or a hesitation. another factor is your (O2) sensors these monitor your exaust and tell the ECM to adjust accordingly the fuel mixture also. a sure fire way to tell if one ore more sensors are faulty is to either have your check engine light come on or if there is a rough start. if the check engine light isn't on then i would think there is a timing issue involved and a tune up is in order. the tune up is simple by just changing plugs and wires, however the timing is computer controled and can only be adjusted by a certified tech with the proper equipment. try and change the plugs and wires first this is the least expensive way to solve your problem. if the problem persists then take it to a shop and have a tech hook up diagnostic tools to check the ecm for fault codes to narrow down whatsensors if any are faulty.

It sound to me like the starter solenoid is bad. If you can remove the starter yourself you should be able to repair the problem. You will need to remove the terminal cover from the solenoid(be careful because there are wires connected to the underside of those terminals so do not force it.) If you look at the back of the terminals you will probably see that the inside part of the bolt is burned. loosen the nuts that hold the terminals and rotate them so that the burned sections are to the outside then tighten the nuts back. (not too tight because you can break the plastic) You can test the starter before you put it back in the van (after reassembling the starter itself of course) by connecting a set of jumper cables from the battery to the starter. Negative gets clipped to any good metal tab (usually where the mounting bolts go is a good spot) and the Positive cable goes to the big terminal where you first removed the cable from. touch a screwdriver to the smaller terminal and then touch the screw driver shaft to the + CABLE CLIP (not the terminal because you can damage the threads if it arcs) Be sure to have a good grip on the starter because if it works then it will jump. And keep your fingers out of the hole where the gear (Bendix) is because when you bridge the contacts the Bendix will pop forward and will shred your fingertips.

Is the check engine light on? If it is you will need a code reader to plug into the OBDII port under the dash near the steering column. But that may not keep the light off. Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be repaired. Hope this helps.
