I would not go that far yet.Replace the ignition module in the distributor first.It is the most likely problem.It is common on these models to do this.

1995 trans sport van new fuel pump, won't start


If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.

I have a 1993 Pontiac transport van and it will start up and run for 5 or 10 seconds and die


You may want to do a fuel pressure test to start. The pump could be defective. The fuel pressure should hold steadily and not decline with the pump off. If the fuel pressure falls, you either have a fuel leak, stuck injector, faulty fuel pressure regulator, or a bad fuel pump check valve. If the pressure holds at the correct spec, note the pressure as the engine runs and then dies. If the guage shows correct pressure, you can then move on ruling out the fuel system.

1989 chevy van won't run.


Check the air filter (may be very dirty), carburetor may need thorough cleaning, or, if fuel-injected, the injectors may need cleaning. The fuel pump may also be malfunctioning....remove the outlet hose from the pump, place another hose onto the pump and drain it into a container so you don't lose the gas, and have a friend crank over the engine while you watch to see if gas spurts out quickly and abundantly into the container. IF NOT, then you will have to fix the fuel pump, or replace it.

MY GIRLFRIENDS 89 CHEVY CELEBRITY DIES WHEN TURNING


Try replacing the fuel pump relay, or you may have a PCM (computer) and prom failing. Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there.
Inspect that area for any corrosion or loose wire (bad ground) Good luck and here is a link for you to retrieve your DTC codes and that may help you resolve the car's issue.

How to rmove fuel from fuel tank of 2000 chevy express van?


Some fuel tanks have a drain **** that will allow you to drain all of the gas neatly. If you have a drain ****, it will be located at the lowest point on the tank. Loosen the valve and allow the gas to completely drain.
If your tank has no drain ****, you'll have to drain it by removing one of the fuel lines. The rubber hose that exits the tank at its lowest point will drain the tank fully. It will either be connected to an electric fuel pump, fuel filter, or to a hard fuel line that goes to the front of the car. Loosen the clamp on the end of the line that connects to the gas tank. Pull the hose off and allow the gas to run out of the tank into your container until it is drained completely.
