Under the hood, look for the fusebox (black box with lots of wires coming out).

Check in there for any blown fuses, also, that is where your relay should be.

If you have run you van with less than 1/4 tank on a regular basis, chances are high that your fuel pump will need to be replaced. It is located inside the fuel tank, so you will have to remove the tank to get to it. To check if it is the fuel pump, look at the fuel pipes on the engine, and locate what looks like a tire valve. with a rag over your hand to catch any spray, depress the valve. If no fuel comes out, replace your fuel pump.

I have a 99 Mitsubishi Eclipse, it all of a sudden died. I tried to start it again and all it would do is crank over without actually starting up. Its not fuel pump. What else could be the problem?

Many things can make it stop and not restart. Even though the gas gauge reads it may be false and the car could be out of gas. The gas tank could have water in it especially if you just got gas from a station. If you think that there is water in the tank add a bottle of "heat" or tank dryer to the tank. A bad fuel filter or low fuel pressure, bad ecm(computer), bad ignition module or ignition components(coil etc), bad fuel injectors, bad crankshaft position sensor, bad ignition switch, bad relay(s) or blown fuse(s), security system/ignition key, or bad connector(s)/wiring issues. The best place to start is checking the fuses and scanning the computer for codes.

Engine backfires and also loses power when going up hills. the check engine light is off.

Either you have ignition component problems...i.e coil pacs, ignition modules, spark plug wires and connections .....or something is wrong with the vehicles timing i.e cam problems , pcm, cam position modules...Have the vehicle put on an analyzer anyway. There may still be a code stored even thought the check engine light did not come on.

Teddydear200, I was running on 4 of 6 coils, the driving and running of the car was ridiculous, I thought my baby was dying. The mechanic suggested the ignition control module, I replaced it and am back to getting up to 90 mph easily and the car runs smoother. Since you've done all that other stuff, give the ignition control module a try as the person above me suggested. I think that really is your problem. - J

Sounds like a bad ignition module. The module does two functions. It runs the ignition coil and also delivers the signal to the ecm to run the injectors. Sounds like it isn't putting out a tach signal.

do you have a diesel or gas engine? if its gas most likely you have a grounded ignition wiring. the short may be intermittent thus it starts then stalls when the voltage supply to the ignition coil is disrupted when the wire gets in contact with earth

Check your fuel pump pressure after it dies, could be a fuel pump. Try hitting the gas tank sometimes it will make the pump start to work again. The fuel pumps are cooled by the fuel in the tank if you run your tank low alot it will overheat the pump and cause the pump to fail.

1987 Cavalier keeps stalling and i have a difficult time starting

The stalling out part makes me want to say you have a bad Torque Converter Clutch lock up solenoid. ( TCC ) They are notorious for that.
A quick and dirty fix is to simply unplug them. It wont really harm anything unplugging it but unplugging it will make the car run a tad bit warmer and your gas mileage will suffer by about 10 mpg.
( I had to do the same thing last summer )

The no spark makes me want to say check the coil pac, ignition module under the coil pac, and the crank position sensor under the coil pac / ignition module assembly which is mounted in the block. All are located centrally on the rear of the engine under the intake manifold. You will likely need to reach them from under neath.
