    When you turn on the key the fuel pump turns on for about 3 seconds to prime the fuel system which is normal. It may be a little shorter. It sounds like one of your sensors are not communicating with the PCM causing no fuel delivery. Possible problem with crankshaft position sensor which is used more for spark but info is also used by PCM for fuel, or problem with camshaft position sensor which is used for fuel. Be shure everything is plugged in and advice of codes if possible so we could be of more help.

    assuming crankshaft position sensor is on rear of engine above flywheel..correct? where is cam postion sensor located? i do have a plug that was under radiator and found a hole beside lincence plate that looks as if it would go there but not sure..looked under van up front and couldn't find anywhere else it may plug into but could it be the camshaft sensor plug?
