computer due to moisture.

My 1999 Pontiac Montana starts fine, and then sometimes dies


The starting /keep running issue is probably a slow IAC (idle air control)Next time turn the key on,wait 3 or 4 seconds then start,if it keeps running after that wait time everytime,it most likely is the IAC,,,,,,no big deal.
How long does the van sit when it has a dead battery?

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation watch this video on fuel pump control , shows chrysler first , ford ,then gm . wait for gm an he explains the oil pressure switch . Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start .

We ran ut of gas, then it ran for a couple days ut then it started to rain and rained for 3-4 days straight. my van wouldn't start.


If it is a minivan there is a connector under the floor on the drivers side behind drivers seat under van.(by front of sliding door) Could have water in it. Or your fuel pump could have gone bad.
If you have a rubber mallet I would try tapping on the middle of the fuel tank while someone is trying
to start it. Do you hear the fuel pump run for 3 second when the key is first turned on? If not hit the tank with the mallet. What van model and year and what engine is it?

1992 Plymouth Voyager won't start after it rains


I don't know if this is the same, but I used to have a 87 Chrysler LeBaron. It ran great until you washed it or it started raining. Then it would die and it wouldn't start until 2 or 3 days later after it dried out. I took it to the shop several times, they always said it was the fuel pump. It turned out to be the wiring that runs next to the battery, had the insulation eaten away from battery acid over the years. I wrapped the wiring next to the battery in a piece of plastic and I never had another problem with it. Sounds cheesy I know, but it was ironic that several shops looked at it and couldn't figure it out. As far as white smoke that might be a differant problem.

The rain is the culprit. It studders, misses, dies. Won't start.


Check the distributor cap and rotor. A usual culprit in wet weather. The CHECK ENGINE light is most likely a side effect. Have codes checked to be sure. Hope this helps
