It wont start at all and we put jumper cables and


You might want to have then check the alternator. Sometimes an alternator will test ok but once it has been running for a while, the dilinoids (not sure about the spelling), will basically cause a short circuit in the electrical system and the alternator is no longer charging the battery which drains the battery.

Alternator? Van has been draining batteries and now wont start


Jump start your van, with a volt meter check voltage at battery with engine running and jumper cable disconnected, you will be checking alternator out put voltage there, should have a reading of not less then 13.5 volt's, if less replace alternator, alternator is not hard to replace. two or three bolts is all that holds it in place, don't forget to disconnect battery before removing alternator.

Put new battery ran for 5 mins and now wont stard


It sure sounds like a bad bearing in the alternator by your description. Back off the tensioner pulley just enough to remove the belt from the alternator. Hang the belt to the side with a piace of twine or a bungi cord. Turn the pulley on the alternator, it should turn freely and quietly. If it makes ANY sound at all or feels hard to turn it must be replaced. While you've got the belt loose turn the remainig pulleys and wiggle them to check for play. Change any idler or tensioner pulley that makes any noise or has play.
