sounds like a possible broken motor mount. when the engine torques, something else shorts out and it dies.

Get OEM engine mounts, not the aftermarket ones. Try oemfordparts.com replace right front and rear mounts, you van will drive as well as a brand new one. These mounts are notorious for going bad.
