    My van starts fine. But it seems to idle rough. As soon as you put it into gear it dies. Any suggestions on what could be going on?

If it is standerd then it is most likely your lutch try to keep your r.p.ms at the owest point you can before shifting if it is automatic it could be the pressure plate but im not an expert with automatics{yet again the change them so often that nobody really is}

Could be a faulty torque converter but that would not explain having to use a jumper. Have you let the engine run for 5 or 10 min before shifting into gear ?

Have you tried cycling key for fault codes? Turn ignition to on (not start) then off, then on, then off, then on, leave it on, and count flashes of check engine light.
flash,flash,pause, flash flash, is code 22. 3 flashes, pause, then 5 flashes, would be code 35, etc. See what you get, & get back to us with them if you need more help.
