I had the same problem on my 2001 GMC Safari. The first thing I did was make sure the spark plug cables were good or not. The first test was quite easy and I did it in the dark. While I had a spray bottle of water in one hand, I cranked the engine with the other and sprayed water on the spark plug wires. I suddenly saw lots of tiny electrical sparks coming from the wires and jumping to anything metal or anything grounded. That told me the wires needed to be changed. So I changed them.

Another time, my car would not start at all. I checked to see if there was the smell of gas when I cranked it and also put the ignition in the before crank position and listed to see if I can hear my fule pump. It makes a whiny noise. Since I didn't hear it, I next checked my fuel pressure. I wore safety glasses for this. I turned the key and pushed the nozzle on the fuel line to see if fuel would squirt out continuously while covering it with a rag. I found out there was no pressure. So I changed the fuel pump and that was it.

Another time my car would stutter on rainy days like the timing was off. What I found was a defective ignition sensor that is located in the rotor laying flat with a 3 wire connectore. Once I replaced it, I never had any problem since. My car has about 160,000 miles and still running strong.
Take care of the vehicle and it will take care of you!!
Good Luck

2002 Astor Van will not start it turn over fine . I checked the fuses under the hood and the panal all where good.But I am not hearing the fuel pump on it when I turn the key to the on spot.

Did you check the fuel pump fuse? It's often all by itself, and not in the fusebox. This is the case on Chevy/GMC C/K trucks, it might be similar on the Astro van.

2000 astro van won't start

What you have to do is check and see if you have fuel pressure.You have to remove the engine cover to check it.If you don`t have a pressure tester then remove the air cleaner hose to the engine and spray it with carb.cleaner or brake cleaner.If it starts for a few seconds then it is more than likely a fuel pump.If it does not start then you have to check for spark at the spark plugs.Make sure you check more than one plug.If no spark then you have to check the distributor cap and rotor.Make sure the rotor is good and cap also.Things that can cause no spark are the ignition module,coil,and cap and rotor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 1990 Chevy Astro van that stopped running on me while I was driving it. I towed it home. I replaced the fuel pump and it ran for a little while and started running very rough. So I bought another...

You say you replaced the fuel pump, what about the filter? If the filter is clogged it can cause this as can ignition. Since the car started for you after the fuel pump was changed the original problem was the fuel pump. But you should never change the pump without installing a new filter.
