mine was doing the same thing this winter really really hard to start if it wasn't plugged in. I had a tune-up done plugs, wires, cap, rotor, starts great now and getting 100km more per tank of gas too. :)

david,thanks for your suggestion.Idid the above repairs twice,no change.WE hve had 30 days of rain in N.S.and Ihave had the VAN plugged into block heater every night. YOU can boost by tow truck and it will not start.A mechanic thought maybe all 2000 vans experienced same problem.ON three rainy days Ihave seen 3 vans being towed .
