2500 STARTS AND RUNS FINE UNTIL ITS WARM AND WHEN YOU SHUT IT OFF IT WONT START AGAIN, UNTIL IT COOLS DOWN THEN IT STARTS RIGHT UP.

Never heard of that size engine in a full-size van, but your description sounds exactly like the way crankshaft position sensors typically fail. They become heat-sensitive and fail when the lack of air flow allows engine heat to migrate into the sensor. Normally the Check Engine light will also turn on and a related fault code will be set.
