The chip in your ignition key is bad or most-likely the computer that controls the anti-theft part of your van, called PATS. Not an easy fix unless your mechanically inclined and know how to operate a multimeter...write back if you are...otherwise, find a mechanic good in electrics and tell him what I said (so he doesn't waste YOUR time).

I have a '98 Astro van that starts fine when cold but is hard to start win hot. It idle and runs fine. After it cools down completely, it will start OK. I was told it could be a fuel pressure problem and...


I agree, replace the Coolant temp sensor, it will have 2 wires going to it, Not 1. Usually located just behind the breather near the thermostat outlet.

This sensor controlles your timing and fuel to air ratio.
