The van won’t start and stay running. I can start it and make it run for 2 to 5 seconds at a time by first pumping accelerator pedal a few times. With out the pumping it will not start at all.
Replaced the fuel pump last year. I can hear it running.
The van has 270,000 miles on it.
I had it parked since last November, drove it one time in January with no problems. I can’t keep it running to do any checks at all.
I have noticed a water leak through the windshield, when key is turned on / off to start the van my door locks go nuts. This issue might have some water licked on some electronics.
It back fires at times when I try to start it.
It will start for few seconds at times.
When it starts for the few seconds and I press the accelerator it dies, if I do not press the accelerator it it will die too.
Could have something freeze and break over the winter?
Could this have something to do with fuel pressure regulator?[/Quote:fe9d8308ff]
