I am sorry but it doesnt sound like a blown head gasket a blown head gasket would be blowing out blue smoke out the exhaust. This sounds more like fouled spark plugs as plugs can be triky 1 minute there fine next you try to start it and there bad. This is where i would start though.

I would suggest to check the battery first, normally the votage should be above 12V. You can try boost from another car, if the van starts, then replace the battery.
