Put 2 coil packs on because was missing fixed it, drove the van 60 miles turned it off and would not restart, had it towed home. Can hear the fuel pump and I checked fuel pressure has 40 lbs, van sounds like it trying to start just wont go, battery fully charged, has occasionall back fire, motor sounds good when turning over not like it out of time?Put code reader on it showed no codes
Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, Do you hear the fuel pump come On when you turn key on? If not check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay if okay-check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs,coil's resistances,cap and rotor,distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing

You could consider trading it in or selling as long as it's driving ok? Or buy major repair insurance?
