My 2000 chevy express van 4.3L has never had a problem until this morning. It was a cool morning and it started funny then died. Show i cranked it over again longer and it then started and stayed running. Later on in the day I went to start it again and it wouldn't stay running. I finally got it going and got it home. Now it wont start at all anymore and the gas gauge is reading full and theres only a 1/2 tank. Please help

The battery cables or the circuits that operate your alternator are probably bad. There is also a good chance that the alternator is no good. I have gotten several bad alternators straight out of the box. Remember: NEW is not the same thing as GOO ... 2003 Ford Windstar

Is it possible that the linkage or tumbler is gone in the steering column,is it possible that it's telling the vehicle not to start. Another Question i have


I have worked on a similar problem with one of these vans. You either have spark or fuel issues if the engine turns over. I would say jugging by that it will start after long cranks that it might be fuel related and you should have the v ... 1996 Ford Windstar

Something in my fuel pump is draining my battery and the van wont start. Meaning this I charge up the battery to start the van and the van will turn over but not fire (start) I replaced the fuel pump and still no luck starting the engine. I notice that when I step on the fuel pedal it seems to put a drain on the battery. The other symptom that it had making me believe it was the fuel pump is that before the van quit working as I stepped on the gas to accelerate the van slowed down until it


Could be a bad ( tps ) sensor it registers the amount of pedal you give it so it knows how much fuel to give the engine if the starting volts are not where they should be it won't start. ... 2002 Kia Sedona

Changed fuel tank on 1993 chevy astr van and now the van wont start the pump is cycling great but van wont start......fuel is getting to the pressure check valve....its a 4.3 l engine


You might be getting fuel to the rail, but are you getting enough? Double check the installation and make sure you didn't kink the fuel lines when putting the tank back in. This could cause a reduced fuel flow resulting in a no-start condition. ... 1993 Chevrolet Astro

Well since you say you have good spark and good fuel pressure, and since the car is running (at random times) the compression is most likely good. I would recommend replacing the crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensor. These have a d ... Chevrolet Astro

I have a 1997 dodge 2500 van . When i start the vehicle it wont start unless the generator light lights up and stays on. the trouble i am having is that, i have to turn the ignition switch on and off in order for the generator light to stay on, and the vehicle will start .

How much does it costs to replace or repair a fan system in my van? My van gets cold when I am driving but the moment I am stopped at a light or in traffic the temperature gauge starts going up closer to the red line to heat and then the cold a/c turns into a sauna. As soon as I start driving again then the temperature gauge goes back to normal and then the a/c gets cold again.


Befor you replace the fan you need to check the thurmastat. Turn on heater and see if cools down the motor. Could also be your heater core going out. this supplys the water through your system to cool. as well as heat. good luck If you do have t ... 2006 Ford Freestar

My van wont start i've checked the starter it's good, i've bought a brand new battery, and an ignition switch. why wont my van start


Because you are replacing parts instead of checking if you need them or not. First you need to verify that the stater has power on the large cable. then there is a small wire on the solenoid, this should have power when trying to start, if it does, a ... 1993 Nissan Quest
