Hello: If your engine is a V/6 3800, check the connections of the spark plug wires to the coils, if you have rust or corrosion on the wires or coil replace the wires and the affected coils. If there is rust and corrosion on the connection to the spark plugs replace the spark plugs also.

Also, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r7427423-fix_poor_idle_high_idle_stalling_fuel . These are generic instructions.

Sounds like the intake manifold gasket. The original is defective, you can get one at a parts store for <$50 and have it installed by a mechanic.

Van will run and over nite it will not crank in the morning..it trys to turn over but doesnt


Does it start if you jump it? It sounds like the battery is going dead overnight. Check to make sure that there are no lights staying on (interior, trunk, glove box, etc.) that would drain the battery. If the battery is more than two or three years old, it may have a dead cell. It will take a charge and appear to be okay, but runs down very quickly. Most auto parts stores will be happy to check your charging system and battery at no cost.
