OK this is a very common problem. there is a 4 pin connector on the trans. (just below the air box area sometimes blue or grey)(in a shape of a box) that is your TCC soleniod switch connector. just dissconnect that and see what happens. if your problem stops then you need a TCC solenoid. what that does is it locks up your converter at 40mph+ or HWY speeds to save on gas. another way to test it is when your slowing down and it feels like your driving a stick shift and it wont get out of gear and stalls. if that is what is happing thats your problem. just dissconnect it if you want but i remomend getting it fixed. DO NOT REBUILD TRANS. many trans shops try and pull a rebuild on this.

Start great runs 10 min. Dies will not start again


It sounds like a clogged fuel filter. Can you tell me about the vehicles history? The more information the better. When was the last tune-up. Were there any resent repairs performed? Have you done any tests? Like a fuel line pressure test? anything small that you may have noticed while looking over the engine and/or the rest of the car? I hope this helps, Please let me know if you have more details or questions.

One of your intake manifold gaskets went bad and it is sucking in air where it should'nt be. This problem is very common on this motor. I'm 100% sure that is what it is. But no ofense if you can't figure out how to get your radiator cap off , then this job is probably a little much for you.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump

Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start


Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

Van runs great until it heats up. generally about 15-20 min.


i would check to see if your fuel pump is working properly maybe first try replacing the fuel filter and running a fuel treatment.
