Question about Chrysler Town and Country
Van drove fine when I parked it in my driveway. Haven't driven it for several months. Now turns over fine but will not start. Tried starter fluid and it catches and starts but dies when I press accelerator. Any ideas out there?? Poor disabled girl here, trying to sort this out.
You started fluid to get it running what is running it may start sucking fuel on its own otherwise you'll need to get your fuel system flushed

I had the same problem with my 2000 GMC Safari two years ago....drove me CRAZY!
Sometimes it would start right up...other times it just would crank and not start.
It turned out to be a cracked coil....I found it by using a spray bottle with water in it, and "misting" the engine, at night....with the engine running. (On a night when it DID start!)
It took a while, but finally the hairline crack let in some water and the electrical short showed by a spark coming out of the coil.
I replaced the coil with a new one, and it has never "not started" since.
Evidently the coil cover gets brittle and develops small, hairline cracks due to heat from the engine.
Oh...by the way....I tested the coil it showed that it was fine!....but it took the "misting" at night...in the dark...to find the spark "leaking" out.
