I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.

If you have a front wheel drive and not a AWD montana, it could be a bad wheel bearing or a brake shoe that may have broken loose.
Most likely it's going to be a bad rear wheel bearing and it takes less then 2 hours to replace. You can pick up the wheel bearing at Auto Zone or Parts Source for around $170.00 and they have all the instructions for you to do thew job your self if you like.
Tool's you will need: Jack Stand Ratchet with a 1/2 socket and extention Large screw driver 5 pound hammer Lock tight
To check if it is your bearing, try shaking the van from Side to side from the wheel. Listen and feel for any play, the bearing it self is sealed and the bearing my have gone dry.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh you do not have to remove the brakes to do this job and use the screw driver from the top to split the bearing from the brake housing after you hammer it free from the Axle.

On many cars, if the battery is dead, it locks the key in the ignition. Put a battery charger on the car or replace the battery and give it a shot.

Good luck.

Bad ignition switch. I have seen lots of these go bad. Also check starter relay. What happened was for some reason the starter relay was activated and sent a signal to the starter to start the car even though the car was running

Why is it that after diving my 06 bmw 528i about 5 min cut car off it restartes drive again for about 15 min cut car off if I try to restart the car I have nothing no start but if I wait for half hour


Have the wiring to the starter checked and tightened. Seems as though the starter has become heat soaked, binds and does not start until it has cooled down..did you install it correctly replace any heat shield that may have been in place? Be sure you have the correct starter...Some will fit but if the torque if not correct it can put strain on the starter.

Dodges have a gear reduction in the starter, usually. It could be wearing out. Have it checked out at a rebuild shop.

My 1997 chevy lumina will not start it just makes a clicking sound when i tr to turn te key


Sounds as if you have a bad starter. The vehicle running differently when cold is a whole different issue that has nothing to do with the starter. Below is a picture of the starter and its location. You can have someone turn the key as if to start the car while you actually touch the starter. If it is bad you will feel it trying to enguage or click inside. I'm guessing that's the clicking noise you hear. If the vehicle is in a bad location and you need to move it in order to replace the starter, again while someone is turning the key to start the car you can tap on it with a small hammer or something and GM starters are pretty good about loosening up and starting while you are tapping on it. This doesn't fix the problem it just will get you going so you can move it. This "tapping" works about 85 percent of the time on GM starters. Either way if you feel the starter trying to go with somebody turning the key, more than likely you are dealing with a bad starter. Hope this helps.

2006 Torrent driven without any problem this AM. Left home again drive to store. come out of store approx. 3 minutes later, car not start, just clicking sound. Was able to get a battery boost. car drove...


Sounds like the starter.If you can locate it,tap on it with a hammer 3 or 4 times and try to restart.It may take several tries but should eventually start because starters don't quite fail 100%,they just kind of get stuck.If you can't find the starter,call a couple of parts stores or a dealer,someone is always willing to tell you for free to attract your business.It should work and you need a new starter.I put in a used one a couple of years ago and no problems yet,but the decision is yours.Good luck!
