I bought this van 2 years ago and have had no problems with it except for an alternator, and fuel pump.
I took it out last Saturday and came home home and parked it where I live, in an elderly complex: it was working just fine.
The next day, mthere was no power from the battery, so I calledmy firend the next day, and together we jumped it froma cold stone dead battery! And when I went to kepp it running to keep the chage, it started dragging till I got going, then it ran fine until I came to a light or stop sign, then started really dragging no matter waht gear I put it in, except reverse, where it rons perfectly.
I suspect vandalism as I had no problems and this hapend while I slept, I add that becasue there is also no fluids leaking, and I checked the tranny fluid and added one quart, so tht was a little down, but still no leaking, no pinging or any noises.
I insert that I suspect vandalisma s we havemany mentally challenged younger ep;e livinghere with time on their hands and I have had my directional signal broken over and over among other things.
I also insert the problem so that it will be known that I was not driving along, just parked and it happened while I slept. The battery is now fine, but the power locks were going on and off while the battery was dead! I dont know if anyone has a remote contol that can cause this or waht, but it has been all wekk and the car turns over as good as it always did until last Sat.
I am on a very fixed income and have no idea how to pay for htis if it is a big problem I willmake a donation when my check comes in, untill then, I jsut need an idea of what I an possible do to get back on the road and be self sufficient, al my family livesout of town and out of state.
I do appreciate anything you can do or any thought s you may have or anyone living nearby that can help, thanks again, Doreen
