my van starts fine, but when I put it in drive and excellerate, it dies. It takes several times before it starts and I have to let it run for a while before it will go. It also has a light miss at idle.

    Is that like when it's cold blooded? Does it only run rough when the engine is cold?
    Do you have any warning lights illuminated like your check engine light?
    There might be a temperature sensor that is giving the computer false information when it's cold causing it to run rough. This could also be ignition related. Do you see any black smoke from the tail pipe when it's running rough?
