I have a 1990 Chevy Astro van that stopped running on me while I was driving it. I towed it home. I replaced the fuel pump and it ran for a little while and started running very rough.

My problem is that when I start my van cold it works fine. As I run errands and stop for 15 - 30 minutes, when I start the van it runs very rough. If I pump the gas and get moving it smooths out and runs fine. I have been told that the check valve in the fuel pump is leaking causing fuel to leak back into the tank. If that were the case wouldn't it start rough all the time?

When I try to start my Intrepid, it turns but wont turn over. If you spray starting fluid in the intake, it will turn over, and then die when the fluid runs out. If you pump the gas while starting it, after spraying starting fluid, it will run, but you have to keep pumping the gas to keep it running. After you get it running, and pump a while, it will eventually even out, and idle, but if you stop pumping too soon, it will die. Once it will idle, if you shift into gear, it will rev down, and


Keeps stalling Feels like I am running out of gas. First felt like the Rav started to "hick-up", then stalled out as I was coming to a stop. Now seems to happen almost every time I try to come to a stop or take my foot off the accelerator. I have to put in neutral and rev the gas to keep engine running. Engine light is now on since the first stall out. Fuel filter has been replaced and problem still persists. AutoZone site suggests changing the wire set and spark plugs or possibly the fuel pump.

Engine light was on and van was running rough. The local repair center says that it needs a new fuel pump (2 of 6 sensors are receiving low fuel pressure ratings). I keep getting different answers on what this involves. I thought it would just be a fuel pump and a filter, but now I'm hearing there are 3 pieces to the fuel pump system - pump, motor, filter.
