    I was driving it and stopped at a light then it felt like someone hit me and hesitated and died then its cranking too really fast. I just changed the motor and replaced everything.

You likely have a bad cap and rotor when the weather gets humid and or very cold moisture can get into the cap and cause a crossfire condition(firing on mulitple/wrong sparkplugs) and will prevent it from starting.My 1996 chev silverado has done this to me 2 years in a row on one of the coldest nite of the season and both times a cap and rotor fixed the problem.(the first time i bought the cheapest one I could find...not so cheap now though!)
Hope this helps!

2004 astro van.started fine in the morning put rear brakes on now won't start.fuel pump works.when cranking over backfires through intake.didn't touch any wires when putting on rear br


Backfiring from intake usually indicates a timing problem. The brake job has not effect on the engine, unless you accidentally disconnected some wires in the engine compartment, but highly unlikely. More likely the timing belt/chain may have jumped a few teeth. If you have an access hole to see the timing belt and marks have a look. If you need more specific info most libraries have subscriptions to online automotive service manuals for almost any year, make and model of car, motorcycle, or whatever. If you have a library card, some will give you the u/n and p/w so you can access them from your home computer, if not then you will have to go to your local branch to get access, but it is free!
