Hi:
Has the check engine light come on? You may want to take the van to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer for codes. Most will do it for free.

If nothing is found, have the fuel pressure tested. Again, you can rent or borrow the gauge from many parts stores and all you need to do is hook it to the fuel rail to test the pressure.

Let me know what you decide.
