When I first started my van, it hesitated on starting, after a couple of cranks, it started, later while driving it, it stalled and now it won't start at all, it has a new battery, full tank of gas, and it turns over but won't start. Any Ideas?

There could be a few things wrong....

Failing ignition coil.
Failing/Failed fuel pump.
ECM Malfunction - or bad crank/cam sensor.

Fist thing you can do is have the error codes read. Most autoparts stores will read the OBD codes and then you can re-post your findings. Even if the check engine light is not lit - it may be burned out or removed.

This will help narrow down the list of suspects.

Next - verify there is spark at the sparkplugs - this would indicate a problem with the ignition system. if there is spark - your culprit is the fuel system

have the codes read and we'll be glad to help you further.

THanks!!

My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

92 grand caravan starts poorly, then runs ok when warmed up, then poorly after 30 min. to 1 hr. of driving. Then stalls and won't start till 30 min. or so later.


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
