My van will crank over but just will not start. It has gas, battery and alternator are brand new. The fuel reset button is in the down position(this will not move up or down), It acts like is out of gas, but has gas in it. This has happened three times before but it usually would start after about 20-60 minutes of letting it set, now it will not start. Do you have any ideas?

Do you
