The van has an issue with stalling. Have replaced the fuel pump, coil pack and it still will not run. If left to sit for awhile, it will start and drive, but only for a very short distance, then stall again. I would apprieciate any ideas or suggestions you may have on this problem.

Try cleaning the throttle body. remove the big black air hose and with the engine OFF, hold the throttle open and see how the throttle plate is black. it should be a smooth transition. Carbon ring starves the engine for air at idle, especially when it is warm outside.

Car runs perfect then starts missing real bad then stalls


Not unusual for fuel pumps to begin to fail once they are heated up from running. First thing in the morning pump is cool, then as you drive, it heats up and begins to lose pressure. After sitting a 1/2hr-1hr, it may start again and run fine for a short time and start to act up again. Had similar problem and found good fuel pressure when tank and pump cool, but lost pressure once vehicle driven a distance and pump heated up. The hotter the weather, the shorter the distance I could drive. If you can somehow set it up to have fuel pressure checked when it starts to act up, that would certainly help confirm if fuel pressure is the culprit.

Stalling


As with any no start issue, you will have to figure out if you are dealing with a spark or fuel problem to proceed.
Either problem could be a faulty relay.
If it is a no spark problem, check to see if you are getting voltage to the coil.
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

The van stalls and dies when its hot outside.


try this it may work as i dont know your area, as im in uk but remove the air temp sensor on the filter box and see if that works, if it does it could just need replacing or you need a remap to the ecu as its reading the wrong signal. could even be a bad connection to the ecu so might just need a good clean on the ecu connector.

sounds like it could be a coil issue after its been sitting for awhile it starts again correct? when its running the coil will warm up and if there is a small crack in it anywhere it will seperate and loose its contact therefore interupting the spark for the engine and it will die. or it could be a bad fuel pump or even cheeper yet check the fuel filter.

1993 astro van wont start when van has been sitting for awhile. spray intake clean into throttle body and van starts and runs.


depends how long its been sitting if starts with easy start then its a fuel pump problem like the fuel has gone bad or the pump has gummed itself up ,so take it out and check that the pump still works as i suspect that its gummed up and good clean will cure it for you

HAD CORE PACK REPLACED IN JUNE 09. EVERY SINCE CAR


Maybe the fuel pump is going out have the fuel pressure checked. Or you have a defective coil pack. You should have taken it back to who ever put the coil pack on, right away when you first started having trouble.
