You need to check the cowl pack that sit on stop of the spark plugs its around $65.00 dollars for the whole thing but only $12.00 dollars for just the boot give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your van wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.
