Mike:
If the battery starts the car, chances are it's good. Here is what I need you to do. Take the van to a nationally recognized parts store and have them scan the computer for trouble codes. Most stores will do it for free, so at least I'll have a starting point. To me it sounds like a sensor problem (MAP) but I need to be sure.

Let me know what you find.
