First check tire pressure.
Then your air filter.
Then come back here if that doesn't help

Our van has 197,000 on it and we had to replace the O2 Sensor 3 times in the last 50,000 mile, now it again is smelling like bad/hot exhaust and the fuel is not properly burning and using a lot of gas....

My guess would be the vehicle is running very rich, dumping too much fuel. I would check for injectors that are leaking. Does the van have the 3.0L mitsu engine?

Same Problem

Hi there. First thing I'd look at is the fuel supply to the engine - I mean the pipework and in particular all rubber fuel lines. When the ambient temperture is hot, any trapped rubber/plastic fuel lines are more likely to become restricted thus starving your engine of fuel. Of course, during the winter months the flexible/rubber/plastic fuel lines are more rigid and therefore less likely to be squeezed closed or cause a restriction. You may need to use the services of a Dealer or Fast Fit Centre to raise the vehicle and check all the fuel lines under the vehicle and around the fuel tank too. Hope this helps. Scottech.

Car turned off while driving will not start now

If you know how to check the fuel pressure check that first if you dont know how, have someone try starting the van while someone hits the bottom of the gas tank with a hammer, if the van starters the fuel pump is the problem

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.
