I have a Chry. 97 T/C My Chry. V6 3.8L T/C the van battery died about 5-6 months ago, I let the van sit until I replaced the battery 4 days ago. The van will start but then it will shut down after a few seconds, like there is no gas. There is fuel, I just put about 8 gal in the tank of new gas. The over head computer shows a DTE reading of zero.

    Sounds like you still may have a fuel sending unit issue, which can cause a fuel pumping issue. A fuel pressure test is in order first off.
