these vans where kind off know for haveing problems with there dist. check the dist cap for cracks, check the coil wire also. what has happened is that mosture is getting in some where and probley the cap is at fault. when s the last time the vech has had a decent tune/up cap rotor plugs wires . replace the cap and rotor and coil wire, should solve your problem . but i would recommend looking at the other tune /up parts good luck kdc744

Porous ignition wires can do that..especially when they are damp....too much power is lost to ground on the way to the plugs while cranking. as you release the key, power to the starter is cut, supplying a bit more voltage to the coil, not turning quickly enough, the spark pushes the engine backwards a bit.

Testimonial: "It was the spark plug wires but only worked for a little while"
these vehicles get moisture in the distributor cap. replace those with GM ONLY parts. When you go to install the cap, put a bead of wheel bearing grease on the outside of the cap only where it seals to the distributor base. This will keep out the moisture which causes corrosion.
