You need to do a complete tune-up on the van. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace the battery. If not check fluid level in each cell, if low you can fill to correct level with distilled water. then you can charge the battery. Using a volt meter you can check the alternator at the positive post on battery with the van running to see if it is charging correctly. You should have 14.5 volts to 15 volts. check the air filter and replace if dirty. Check the spark plugs and replace old plugs. replace the fuel filter on van. hope this will help you.

Why wont my vehicle start?


What's missing ? Fuel , spark . What condition is the battery in ? Fully charged 12.6 volts . When you turn the key to start does the starter spin the engine ? A crank no start or nothing happens when you turn the key to start . Videos on youtube ! Crank no start or no crank no start .

Clicking sound when trying to start and no start (sometimes). I think it sounds like the starter is clicking. it is a lot like when the battery is going dead and does not supply enough power to engage...


Everything you are describing leads me to believe the battery is the culprit.Not enough storage in it after it sets,when it does start the alternator has to work at max to recover from the start making it idle rough,and the fact that it starts good warm tells me that you definitely need a battery.You can confirm this by boosting the truck the next time it starts "just clicking",if it goes with a boost then you will know for sure that the battery is done in.

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas


it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)
