SOURCE: no spark

Could be your crank sensor or the distributor. Do you have a check engine light if not chang the distributor.

SOURCE: van quit unexpectedly while driving it- it appears

No shut offs, these are none for fuel pumps,depending on the engine it may be a bad timing belt, the belt may have poped or jumped, start by checking the fuel preasure,if there preasure about 50-60 psi them the next step would be the belt, a compression test on the cylinder should tell you or removing the cover and checking the timing marks. i would say its one of the two a fuelpump or the timing belt, i checked and the 96 caravan does have a timing belt in the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. hope this helps.

Pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with gas. If it is wet, then the fuel is ok. Assuming that you are getting fuel, my suggestion is to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Let me know the results.

Hello Heath.

I see you have gone to a lot of work to solve your problem.
The ignition system on your Chev is normally quite reliable.
The computer will rarely cause a no start as all it does is change the timing through a wire to the ignition module on the distributor. All ignition is done on the engine.
Power is applied to the coil from the ignition switch and the module grounds it to fire the coil.
The most common no start issue on this system, besides the coil, is the pick-up coil and module on the distributor.
The module is pretty easy to replace but the pick-up coil requires the distributor be disassembled.
Often it's better to purchase a rebuilt distributor unit at your favorite auto supplier. They are not too expensive and it makes the job easier.
But if you are a pretty handy guy you could replace those parts yourself.
Make sure you mark the position of the distributor rotor when you take off the cap to make it easier when you put it back together. Keep in mind when you pull it out the rotor will rotate slightly, that is where you will need to position the rotor to begin on installation.
You will also need to set the timing afterward. You will need a timing light to do this.
After it is started and warmed up the computed timing connector will need to be unplugged and the timing set at 0 degrees. Then reconnect the computed timing connector.
The timing connector is a single wire sealed connector that has a tan with black stripe lead. This connector breaks out of the wiring harness below the heater case in the passenger compartment.

There you are, I hope this leads you to a repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Honda 2213 no spark turns over but has no spark

The distributor is a weak point on a Honda. Make sure you have power going to the coil, if so I would think that changing the distributor will solve your problem. Usually the ignition module corrodes and quits sending the signal to the coil.

Cylinder Misfires

It could be your spark plugs or a coil. To see if it's a coil move the coil from #5 to #6 the miss will change to that cylinder with code p0306 and change #1 to #3 and see if it changes to p0303. If it does replace all the coils. You change all coil because if one or two go you know the rest are not far behind

91 Honda Accord No spark

If the timing belt is damaged(broken or missing teeth) you will get no spark. One easy way to tell is that many times the engine will sound different as it turns over, than it used to.

2001 Honda Odyssey 3000cc engine gave me the "shakes". Turns out one of the Ignition Coils failed rendering the spark plug useless. Change with part number 30520-p8e-a01and now runs normally.
