While driving home a few weeks ago my van died. I was accelerating from a stop when it quit. It has good power and rolls over without a problem. I pulled the coil wire to check for spark, none. I took the coil to the local parts store and it tested fine. Before it quit there was a code for the EGR valve (had a rough idle). Now I can not get any codes with the OBDII and the check engine light is off (comes on with the key then goes off). I have gotten multiple votes on the computer being bad but would like another opinion.
Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks for the direction! Distributor is NOT turning. I assume this is bringing me closer to a resolution. Looking forward to more great advice.

THANKS! I found the broken timing belt shortly after you raised the question of the rotor turning. I am a dad in a family of six and your advice led me to a resolution that will get us back on track soon, can't thank you enough. I will definitely make a donation! Once I pay for all the replacement parts :).

Thanks so much for the well wishes! I am going to/did do it myself (finished last night). Actually a bit of a funny story. Got it all back together and it wouldn't start, decided to take a fresh approach in the morning. A few hours later I decide that I am going to do a "once over" to make sure I didn't miss anything, sure enough the coil was unplugged! You can imagine my excitement when that engine fired up, all of the kids came running out to the garage as if Christmas had came early. :)

Thanks again!
