98 astro van will not start. The problem started about a year ago in cold weather car began to struggle and code came up with multiple misfire I replaced the distributor, cap and rotor. It ran then started having problems again and wouldn't start I replaced the coil. It then came up with p0420 bank 1 catailyst inefficient I replace catalytic converter and it ran great for about a year. Then in the cold again it started misfiring and stalling I found that the year old coil was arcing so I replaced it and the coil wire. Ran fine with what seemed to be occasional misfire one day but next day it would run fine. THen the p0420 code began to appear again if I reset the engine lighe and warmed the car up or it was warm out it would not come on but then if it was cold and not warmed up before driving it would reappear, then 2 days ago it wouldn't start at all. I have spark from coil to rotor and to the plugs appears. I have 60psi on fuel line. I sprayed starting fluid in intake to see if it would fire and nothing happened. Im lost on what it could be or what to do.
have the same problem?
