Occasionally, about 5 times over 3 months, the van will not start
properly, twice in the last week. After it has been sitting for a
period of time, usually an hour or two, it turns over, fires, but dies
within a second or two of starting. None of the instruments function
when this happens, not even the gas guage. After sitting for an hour
or overnight, then it will start and stay running, like the problem
never happened. So far the problem has not occured for the mechanic,
and so the diagnostic is not helpful for a specific diagnosis. This
is my parents van, and I am very concerned about them being left
stranded, as my dad is a paraplegic and can’t take a look at it
himself. If you have any knowledge on this, please let me know.
Thanks so much.
