You might check the fuel pressure regulator to make sure it is allowing fuel to reach the two throttle body injectors and not just stopping at the external ports on the TB.

Car stereo short circuit. Won't start.

Worse case, fried body ground. Which will feed fuel pump. And surrounding circuits. Check every point for a good ground to body. Then check fuse panel for blown fuses.

My 1991 dodge caravan is having issues. I thought it was in the fuel system so i changed my fuel filter,fuel pump relay and fuel pump. my van starts and runs but seems to stall out in 5 to 10 min. like its...

theres a few things to check for this problem. the throttle body needs a good cleaning, especially around throttle plate. I fixed a 95 caravan a while ago, and it would stall for no reason, cleaned out throttle body and now its fine. also a bad cam sensor will cause this as well as a bad idle air tcontrol sensor ( IAC ) try cleaning throttle body good. do this first ok ! do you have a check engine light on, if so have it scanned to find problem code. its very hard to tell by not being there but try above.

1993 astro van wont start when van has been sitting for awhile. spray intake clean into throttle body and van starts and runs.

depends how long its been sitting if starts with easy start then its a fuel pump problem like the fuel has gone bad or the pump has gummed itself up ,so take it out and check that the pump still works as i suspect that its gummed up and good clean will cure it for you

You must have a leak or one of the lines are clogged. The reason it stays running when your on the gas is because it keeps the fuel pressure up. Then when it shuts off it loses all pressure in the line and the pump cant handle the initial start with the leak in the line.

94 Lumina van will not start UNLESS...

At the carb fuel intake there is a fine screen to keep the debris that might form in the fuel tank out of the carb. It sounds like that might be the problem.

Vehicle will start & run then will quit

What engine? When was fuel filter changed last, and have you by any chance has fuel pressure tested, preferably when no start?
Tried spraying WD-40 into intake at front of throttle body, with plate open, and then try to start.? Sounds a lot like fuel pump going but lets be sure.
