Van starts holds idle for about 5 min than dies off and if I feed fuel it just dies off faster, what can be the problem? The vans fuel pump packed up and the van was standing for about 5years, about a month back I put in a after market fuel pump for the van and changed the spark plugs. Your response will be highly appreciated

thank you :Brandon

Check the pressure first. The tank may be full of crap that is causing the pump to fail.

I cleaned up the tank before putting the new pump in, could it be the fuel filter? That needs to be changed?

Could be but doubt it as it has a bypass when it is clogged.
