The EGR valve was recently replaced on this vehicle along with the throttle body. That was about a week ago. Yesterday I took the van to Valvoline and had the oil changed, the transmission fluid changed along with the power train and the rear differential. The van ran fine following this. We stopped and put gas in, went to visit a friend and when I left there the van wanted to stall or run rough when I would stop. I got the vehicle home, and it was getting about 11 miles per gallon. I went out later to take it for a drive, after adding additives to remove any water in the fuel. There is no spark. Please help me with this, I need to get back to work tomorrow. Thanks, Cecelia

If you are not getting spark, have you checked to see if you have power to the coil?

The van is in the shop now. They checked the fuel pump, it works. The crank shaft sensor was out. Still no spark. Got readings all the way back to the computer, but no response from the computer. Tried the computer, no spark. Was suggested from another site to try the Auto Shut Down Relay and Fuse. They are trying that today. No idea what to do next.

They have reprogrammed the computer with no luck. They have determined that it is not the engine computer. They want to reprogram the body computer. Do you think it could be the security system? The thing I fear is a broken wire. I have started car shopping.

It could be the body control module. It is responsible for many things. Let them check that.
