Van dies right after startup

Asked by Jan 13, 2016 at 07:30 PM about the 2001 GMC Savana Cargo G2500 Cargo Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 GMC Savana 2500 V6 I use
for work it was running fine then just didn't
start at one of my customers homes. Had it
towed home replaced the fuel pump and
filter still didn't start. Replaced the
distributor, and ignition module it started
but died after 30 seconds didn't sputter
out just died like you turned the key off
then would have to wait ten minutes before
it started again then died. So Then
replaced the ignition coil now it will start
but dies seconds after then only cranks I
have to wait an hour or so before it does it
all over again. I have good fuel pressure
can anyone help with this please?

that guessin' gets expensive- doesn't it? for what you have spent, you could've had it fixed at a good garage already- folks don't seem to be able to catch up to the 21st Century- these new cars are not meant to be fixed by their owners- you have to go back in time to simpler machines to do that- like my '93 GMC

Well your right although it did have a mid fire before and now when it does start the mid fire is gone and it runs a lot better for that short minute before it dies.

Mis fire obviously not mid fire.
