I just went thru this for the second time,, check rail fuel pressure, at start should be round 60 and runs near 55 or so if choke cleaner will start it and then it runs chances are good u need new fuel pump

To clarify, the engine cranks and starts. If it cranks but won't start until 4 or 5 tries, I would check the fuel pressure before and after the first attempt. The check valve in the pump may be faulty and allowing the fuel to flow back to the tank when it is not running. The pump only gets power for the first 3 seconds during crank time until the engine starts.
hi your problem is the electric fuelpump in the tank after replaceing it try not to let the truck get below a quarter of a tank on fuel as this will cause overheating of the pump and premature failure of the pump. don
test replace the fuel pump relay, make sure the relay socket has 12 volts to 2 of it's terminal when the key is held in crank position, if not you may have a defective ignition switch or Powertrain control module (PCM)
I believe that the fuel filter for this model is located under the van on the driver's side, inside of the frame rail, just below the driver's door. The filter is connected to the fuel lines by either threaded in lines or clips. When you go to your parts dealer, get a good look at the filter so that not only will you know what your looking for to replace, but also to know what tools maybe needed to do the job. The parts guy can get you the right tools. Nothing like a good excuse to buy more tools! If this repair doesn't solve your issue, try getting under the van and have someone turn the key to start while you listen for the buzz of the fuel pump from under the fuel tank. If you don't hear it, make sure the van can't move and tap on the center, bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while they crank the engine over. If it starts, you probably need a fuel pump. A bad fuel filter and/or a bad fuel pump will not turn on your check engine light. Good luck!
check if the fuel pump is working, if you have someone near the tank and someone else crank motor you should be able to hear a bzzzzzz rom the tank from the pump. if no noise is heard then hit or thump the tank, this can make a fuel pump start to work again, if it starts, then the pump is almost dead
Hi. This is more of a fuel filter issue than a pump issue although, a bad fuel filter will eventually destroy a fuel pump. When the filter is restricted or clogged, this will tend to work the pump harder than normal. this will over heat the pump, therefore, shortening its life span. I recommend replacing the fuel pump and filter and, adding a fuel additive like techtron fuel injector cleaner/water remover as well.
It could be your fuel pump,when you turn your key just befor your engine turns over you should hear your fuel pump engage,its a very faint electrical purr or buzz and a click its a very quiet sound,so if you listen for it the less background sound the better,and a AAA tow truck driver took a miny sledg hammer and banged around my gas tank under my van and it started up and I was able to get to a garage only to replace the fuel pump.Or you can wait till its dark out-side have someone start the engine while you have the hood up and see if you notice a spark anywhere,could be shorting out,or ive heard open your gas cap and try to start it,but im not sure what that would do.
To test the circuit before removing the tank, you will need a voltmeter or cheap test light. Disconnect the connector at the fuel tank. On the harness side, locate the gray wire (fuel pump wire). Connect the test light to a good ground. Have a helper crank the engine over. While engine is cranking, the gray wire should have power. If it does, and the pump is not turning on, then the pump must be bad and need replacing. If there is no power on the gray wire with engine cranking, the circuit is the problem, not the pump. Go back and find the fuel pump fuse in the junction block (the fuse relay block where the fuel pump relay is). Check the fuse, also check if there is power going to the fuse. This fuse should be hot at all times. The circuit goes from battery to pump fuse to fuel pump relay to gas tank and the fuel pump.
