I think there is a terminology problem.
Let me go back. IT didn't start was the reason it was replaced?
Hesitation to me is that you press on the pedal and the van doesn't move as fast as expected.
Maybe both was happening?
Or maybe I didn't read carefully ;-)
I see what you meant now.
Long crank is what I mis-interpreted. Did it ever not start though?
If the fuel pump replacement did not change anything then we know that was not the problem, although it may make it more complicated if something went wrong during the replacement, such as faulty pump, wiring, etc.
I'm not familiar with the CARMD. Should check them anyways.
During the tune up, what exactly was done. See tune-up a term that has evolved over the years and it's meaning has been mis-used.
Cap, rotor, wires, plugs air induction service
A weak fuel pump would surely be a suspect for a long crank. Checking fuel pressure may have helped to confirm it. Another check is to turn the key to the on position and back off, waiting for 5 secs or so between cycles. After doing this 3-4 times, you can then try cranking and see if it starts. What happens is the fuel the is in the line may drain back into the tank. By cycling the key, it bring the fuel back to the engine before you crank it.
Might be worth pulling the plug wires off and getting a look into the spark plug holes for any oil contamination. Checking fuel pressure would help if this is fuel related.
