There is a notice on your car. It states that customers have complained of either a high idle, hard start, or no start situation. The repair has to do with the Idle Speed Control Valve. This may or may not be the solution but It is what I have found.
On this car you cant just go ahead and replace the valve. You need to bring it to a shop or dealer to have the relearn program performed. If you don't it won't run right or at all. Good-luck.

Try bleeding the fuel line to the injectors by cracking them loose on the injector turn engine over until it cranks fuel should come out of the lines where you cracked them loose at when it starts snug them back up dont completely loosen the lines just a little bout three quarters of a turn if you get no fuel you probably have a injector pump problem

Hi, sounds like your temperature sender unit is not the correct one, three quarters on any vehicle is too high, i would get it looked at as soon as possible or change it, most sender units have a rating on them so change it to a "cooler" unit

Car will not start. it cranks but won't turnover. have lights so thinking it's not the battery. could it be the starter?

If your cranks, the starter is working. If the engine doesn't start, then you are either not getting spark or fuel.

If you can borrow a fuel pressure guage, that would tell you if your fuel pump circuit is working. You can check for spark by inserting a spare spark plug into one of your connected spark plug wires, and ground it to a metal part of your engine.
Good luck on your hunt.

Van dormant for three years. installed new battery,started and ran good for two hours, died, fuel guage malfunctioned(still),radio stopped working(still),i.e.,no 12 volts to orange wire. installed new...

The fuel gauge is probably fine, its the sending unit that is probably bad. As far as the radio I would run another power wire from 1 of the accessory ports on the fuse box. Just make sure you test the port so it goes on and off with your ignition. Just test the port with a light tester. Please rate answer!! Thank you

My truck did this after I replaced the fuel pump. Turned out to Fuel Pressure Regulator. It would crank and crank but never start. It's located underneath the black plastic manifold on the side of the injectors.

Fuel Guage registering improperly!

remove float assembly and reposition it facing the oposite direction. Sometimes the float installation positioning makes a difference on how the fuel gage reads.
