I just bought this van, after driving for a few minutes and want to take a turn it stalls, immediately I put it in park and starts again it picks up. I also observed it when I apply brakes on rough roads it stops suddenly. I have changed the fuel pump three times but no change in the condition. What could be this problem? Please I need good advice because it has cost me a lot.

Hello,

While the engine is running grasp the engine wiring harnesses and move them around. If the engine dies there is a short nearby where you have moved the harness.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken
