Have you had the fuel tank inspected/cleaned? This may have been done whent he fuel pump was being replaced and there was access to your tank interior.
If you have crud in your tank, especially if it's leaves, paper or flakes of old coating/paint, then it can float around and slosh in your tank and at the most inopportune time get sucked over the fuel intake for the pump and choke off or restrict supply. This can give the symptoms you describe, where there are spells of repeated weird symptoms, and then it changes symptoms or appears to dissappear for a while when the crud floats away from the pump. As soon as the fluid motion of the tank brings it back over to the fuel intake, the restriction starts again. Then when you stop the car, and the suction stops and lets it drift off and fall to the bottom of the tank, it seems to be fine again until fuel flow again sucks the offending item back against the intake. I've seen this on three occasions in the past with the same symptoms as you describe and it also foxxed repair shops to no end. On one occasiosn a guy's solution to a rusty tank was to use a tank coating kit. However, if you don't prep the tank and follow the instructions precisely (which he did not) the coating doesn't bond and can pull away from the tank walls and break up into small sheets that can cause the issues I describe above.
Hope this helps

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?

mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

Welcome to Fixya
Try to check first the istributor. Is the distibutor rotor turning when you crank the engine? It may be the drive gear on the distributor is bad. They are nylon and do tend to get brittle and break overtime.
Thank you for using Fixya!
