We have a '94 Transport at around 160,000 that we have been really happy with, but recently, we've been having problems that are bringing us to the verge craziness.
It began about a month or so ago stalling occasionally. It would re-start no problem and we'd be on our way. Then it started to give us a problem re-starting; we assumed after all the re-starts, the battery was weak, and when confirmed by the garage, we replaced the battery. For the last two weeks, it been stalling when running (including once on the highway at 60mph!), Sometimes will re-start, sometimes requires towing. It's been spending more time in the garage than I can calculate.
Diagnostics have been done and the results were inconclusive but we did agree to replacing the battery, cam and crank shaft sensors, and computer (because it seemed those were the most likely culprits). The problem still exists. The garage tells us they cannot resolve it since they can't replicate it in shop (in fact, they haven't even succeeded in replicating it in a test drive although I seem to have no problem having it stall whenever I drive it off the lot!).
We could go on forever replacing parts, which is futile in a vehicle this old; the next suggestions seem to be the modules, coils, fuel pump.
Has anyone seen this before and actually been able to resolve it?
