What year van is this? If later model, has anyone looked at the diagnostic code(s)? Could also be the Mass Airflow Sensor...

I just had this exact problem. Wouldn't start or took 15 trys to start, but then ran smoothly. Sometimes a little rough starting on dry days, but pretty much hard starting after rain. I was thinking water in my tank/bad gas, but shooting some starter fluid in my intake didn't give me the initial blast at start up... that certainly indicated that it was electrical...
...but the next day the vehicle stalled in the middle lane of a three lane street, wouldn't restart. After pushing it to the curb, I got to the point where I was checking the wire from the coil to the distributor cap. Two thirds of the wire lifted right out. This wire was in 2 pieces! Amazing that it had been running at all, with this one wire burned down to a whisper, before it broke completely. There were signs of heat/elec damage to the wire also at a point an inch away on this wire.
Replacing the wires is absolutely the first thing to try. It's cheap and easy to do, and it should be done (or the wires inspected/tested) routinely anyway. The coil-to-distributor coil gets more engine heat and more use than any of the indiv spark plug wires and hence wears much faster.
I am betting this wire is much more likely your problem than a coil failure. Good Luck!

Testimonial: "Thank you for the quick reply. This was one of my first thoughts along with possibility of a blocked fuel filter, fuel pump, or plugs/coil connectors."
