1990 Asrto van blew aECM fuse I replaced the fuse van started but has no power and will not stay running unless gas is pushed

I would suspect the fuel pump is defective. It is located inside the gas tank, the tank must be removed from the truck to replace the pump.

I have a 2000 Mercury Villager Mini Van Sport. When I am in park I can rev the engine with no problens, when I put it in gear & push on the gas it spits & sputters & can't hardly get any...

have the fuel pressure checked if it is ok then you most likely have a bad cam or crank sensor.. is the check engine light on? that will help to pinpoint the issue. if no check engine light then most likely its a fuel pump.

Getting gas and fire but not starting

Change the gas. That gas is no good after a year of sitting,probably has water in it. Hopefully it didn't laquer the fuel pump pick-up screen.

The van starts but will not stay started

try changing the fuel filter first, that is usually the simplest fix and the most overlooked filter on a vehicle...

Van died thought it was out of gas put gas in it started drove home parked it. Went back out to leave hour later would not start. Still will not start!

Three possible issue here. One, the fuel pump may be faulty and inoperable. Two, the fuel filter may need to be changed due to clog. Last, there may be a voltage issue with the current that is directed to the fuel pump causing a weak should have 14 volts going to this fuel pump. if its lower than that, it wont pump properly.also, there can also be water in the tank or bad gas. I suspect a dirty fuel filter and faulty fuel pump possibly.

My 1995 Chevrolet Astro-van turns over but won't start

chk. fuse and relay for fuel punp. if that chks. out ok, then you will have to do a fuel pressure test. but after reading your problem, i'am almost positive its your fuel pump. make sure, do the fuel pressure test. all major auto parts stores carry the kit for pressure test, and they also will show you wear and how to hook it up, and what the pressure it should have. good luck.

Acts like it can't get gas.

Your last sentence has me wondering, did u purchase gas for both vehicles at the same gas station? How far apart did u fill them up (same day, 2 days apart...) I am wondering if you got some bad gasoline. It would explain your problems and the coincidence of both vehicles giving u this type of problem. How about draining the gas out of the vehicle w/ the least in the tank, replace the fuel filter again add fresh gas from a different station. This is of course assuming your fuel pump is ok. When the gas is removed do u see any sediment? Any water would be at the bottom of the tank (gas floats on water) so u should check for water also. Let me know what u discover. good luck!! countrycurt0
