My van turns over but will not crank

HUH??? I assume you mean to say that it "cranks, but will not start".
There are MANY things that can cause this. The first thing that SHOULD be done is to scan the engine control module for possible fault codes. This can greatly speed up the diagnosis process.

Other than that, the only thing I can tell you is that an internal combution piston engine needs four basic things (components) to make it run:
(1) Air-fuel ratio
(2) Volumetric efficiency
(3) Compression
(4) Ignition

If your engine will not start and run, it is because one of these components of basic engine operation is missing.

To get the engine running again, you must:
(A) Determine which of the basic components is/are missing
(B) Perform diagnosis relative to the missing component(s) to identify the CAUSE of it/them being missing
(C) Perform repairs necessary to correct the CAUSE of the problem.

My 1989 corvette runs great but when it is just setting at a stop light it has a little miss to it i have put new injectors in new plugs wires an it still wants to miss at an idle.

you may need the fuel and or the top end(carboned valves) system serviced(cleaned) the fuel filter changed.the miss must be minor as the check engine light has not come on or you didn`t mention could also be a valve sticking just enough to cause the miss.while changing the plugs you may have closed the gap on a plug without knowing it.

Idling #5 and #7 miss fire. holding it at 2000 rpms makes all 8 miss fire. its running really rich and the only code its showing is P0300 which is engine miss fire. have replaced plugs wires cap and...

When there is an engine misfire it could be gas or spark related. Or, the oxygen sensor may not be operating correctly, which controls fuel supply.

If there is a 'random misfire' then it could be an oxygen sensor causing the problem, as well, causing a rich mixture.

Good luck on this repair.

Check engine light is on and it reads Misfire on #2 cylinder. Also oxygen sensor bank2 sensor 1 and Bank 1 sensor 3 behind the converter. Engine running rough.

the engine miss fire can cause the other codes to set. you need to repair the miss fire and clear all codes after the miss is repaired then see if the 02 sensor codes return. the miss fire is probably a bad spark plug wire a good tune-up should take care of it ........HAVE A GREAT DAY

Engine misses/hesitates on low speeds. Runs fine

is the check engine light on? have you ever serviced the injectors? if not try that first because there are many things that give the symptoms you spoke of. but this is the cheapest.

1998 corvette c5 has miss at idle. I've changed plugs and put in a new throttle positioning sensor. Put products in gas for water. Still misses.

Try cleaning your Mass air flow sensor. When the MAF sensor gets dirty, it can cause your engine to run slightly lean and make sure your engine is running at normal operating temperature with a good thermostat.
At idle, if the MAF is slightly dirty and giving the wrong signal to the PCM. There is a good chance that your engine have a lean condition enough to cause it to have a miss. It's may just be in the perimeters that it will not set a check "service engine light" on, but will cause it to miss.
Start with that and post us back, be glad to help and thank you for using fixya.

97 k1500 5.7 liter vortec misses on cylinders 3 and 5 while idling. about 1500 rpm only cylinder 3 and 4 miss then at 2000 rpm only cylinder 4 and 8 miss. what could cause this?

I have had continuous missing issues on my 1997 Silverado after i had a new engine installed 30,000 miles ago. Today I purchased a new gasket for the EGR Valve and removed it. The mechanic had re-used the old gasket when he replaced the engine and cut corners to save $2.00. I found he had installed the EGR bass-ackwards causing my check engine light to stay on and the engine always to miss. Engine runs GREAT now

Engine misses, new plugs in it today, still misses

sounds like you could have a leaky valve..

i unpluge 1 plug wire at a time and see if 1 doesnt seem to change the sound of the engin to much. then you will know what plug is doing it and check those valves "exhaust/intake"..

or even check to see if that plug may have oil on it for that could be valve seals or oil ring on piston that would cause a miss..

You need to see what is going on, have it put on an engine analyzer to see cause of miss, igntion or low cylinder compression, there is no other way.
