Yeah, that's what I meant. Just trying to avoid driving there, failing and driving back home to post "It didn't work so it must be some other obscure thing I haven't thought of so whats next?"


Thanks everybody for the quick replies. You guys are the shit!

Bruce, just saw your from franklin. My best friend was just up there for his sisters wedding the weekend of the snowmageddon but I couldn't afford to attend. He said it wasn't nearly as bad up there as it was here when he came back. Have you guys got hit since then? I had to go buy some chains for my 92 ranger 4x2 it got so bad here . . .

The gas dyer is exactly my suggestion also, in Wisconsin i would have this problem every year when didnt run a vehice during the winter. You most likey (in my opinion) have contaminated fuel ,sour gas, it can turn like shelac even. If bad enough you may have to drain the tank . If you add gas dryer (is like racing alcohol i think) rock the van and mix it best you can (3 mins at least). The fuel inside the lines and fuel pump will NOT be dry but as you try try try to start it will get better. Keep gas dryer in tank thru out the cold season. Condensation and water in gas from station causes this and it is normal.

Sounds just like my first winter in Wisconsin ! GAS dyer thru out the cold season will prevent this next time. If the vehicle sat thru a winter unused FOR SURE it will gan moisture in the tank if fuel is present. Add gay dry (like racing alcohol) then ROCK that van for a solid 3 mins. Then crank it, it will not have dry fuel in the fuel pump or lines yet , so be patient, you may have to recharge the battery if cranking doesn't run the gas dryed fuel thru into cylinders. Rechange or jump it TRY TRY TRY else drain the tank so instead TRY again that gas dry WILL finally reach home plate!

Its looking like its the wires, its been acting up when it rains again. Took it in to the stealership to have them replaced, we'll see if that does the trick. I mean seriously, have you seen the wires on this engine? It's worse than the 2.3L in my ranger....
