2002 pontiac montana minivan cranks over but wont start sometimes

Robert, It is good you are going to have van scanned for trouble codes, as this could tell you the fault. This is a symptom of a failing/weak fuel pump, but it could be a few things causing starting issue. Have scanned, diagnosed and estimate for repair. Good luck.

I have a 1999 c1500 pickup rear wheel drive. I just got the knock sensor 2 done and sometimes it still has trouble turning on. It will want to turn over but when I try to add a lil gas for it to fully turn...

Yes, it could be. The best and only way to know for certain is to have the fuel pressure checked. The pressure should be higher at start up, as with key on-not starting, than when engine is running. It may drop a few psi (5?) after the engine is running.
And very critical to have that fuel pressure at the injectors, for both easy starting and good running. If you have to try giving it gas to start, then something is wrong with either fuel pressure or with the computer controls for the engine. Odd as it sounds, the accelerator pedal-the old gas pedal-actually controls the air intake into the intake manifold of the engine. The computer senses all that and knows when to shoot more gas through the injectors...for a haappy ride. Good luck-check fuel pressure, check for trouble codes.

2004 gmc sonoma why does it take 2-3 times cranking before it starts and only does it sometimes?

install pressure gauge and watch when key is turned off to see if pressure drops to zero if so bad drain back valve in fuel pump replace it or deal with it or could be cheap aftermarket pump and has hard time building unnecessary pressure to open poppet valves between before fuel injectors

Car won't keepidel1989 300e Car won't keep idel, starts up runs for a while but cutsoff

first ensure your spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor/coil packs are in good shape. once thats done check for a check engine light, sometimes they come on then go off but a code will be stored regardless. once you have made sure your getting good spark and there are no trouble codes the issue is most likely a dirty throttle body or fault IAC (idle air control) valve or throttle positioning sensor. hope this helps, good luck

I had a similar problem with a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis and it ended up being a bad fuel filter. But it could be a number of different things.My suggestion would be to check the vehicle on-board computer trouble codes and go from there. Good Luck.
