Ok First lets check the spark. Go in Steps first check to see if you have spark from the ignition coil TO the distributor cap by carefully pulling the coil wire out of the distributor cap, always grab by the boot not the wire never by the wire and wtist gently and pull slowly . once out hold the coil wire close to a ground and have someone crank the engine you will be ok as long as you do not put your hand over the end of the coil wire! Ok if there is Spark there Great, now reinstall the coil wire in the cap. Now go to a spark plug wire and do the same procedure but the plug wires are a bit different on the plug end than the coil wire so you may ned to put a phillips screwdriver in the end of the wire and hold the screwdriver close to a ground be careful of any moving parts like the fan! If you hve spark Great if not you need a distributor cap and rotor (USE ONLY FACTORY GM PARTS) it's very very common in the Astro van

Put the car in gear without the keys being in it, and push it forward until you feel the engine make a rotation, it wont be easy to push so put it in 3rd gear if its a manual? cant do this with an auto
hit the starter motor with a hammer to see if it free's up.
