Having problems with the .subject were it will run for awhile then
die. Starts right back up and it doesn't seem to matter if it is hot
Background stuff you also might need to know:
This van was moose hit last spring which pushed in the Radiator,
Airconditioner Condenser and secondary tranny cooler. Battery
exploded because of the impact ( not fire and smoke ) and spewed fluid
over the top of the block and other nearby objects. I pulled the
stuff out of the fan, hooked up a new battery, provided for cooling
and the thing started immediately and ran for about 1/2 hour before I
shut her down.
Van sat for about a year after my initial stuff done ( above ). Nice
day Saturday so I decided to give the van another look. I pulled all
the broken plastic parts out that I could find, AirConditioner
condenser along with the other air conditioner stuff: heater core,
fans, and piping as they also were smashed on impact; then replaced
the radiator, added coolant and gas and fired her up. Ran for awhile
then died. Starts right back up. Runs then dies. I checked for
broken connections and vaccum lines but found none. All the wiring is
connected as before: no plugs hanging in the engine compartmnet! The
only part that might be different is the incoming air piping/tubing
and widgets for the air intake stuff. They are connected
electrically, but just hanging physically as some of the parts needed
to hold them in place are in many pieces.
I thought the we might have bad gas and put an additional 5 gals in
along with checking the fuel filters. Van runs down the road at 70,
but dies, then we wait, then runs, then dies...
thanks in advance!
