I cannot check the oil reliably because one of the former mechanics broke the tube that the oil dipstick goes into. It broke off a piece about 8 inches long.

Was driving home van running normal suddenly van just shuts off. Put it in nuetral tried cranking it and turns over doesn't start. Pulled in driveway let it sit a min or so and tried it again ran for about 10 sec. then shut off. Let it sit about 5 min. then started it ran for about 30 sec. took it up to 2,500 rpm ran for about 10 more seconds and then just shut off. Let it sit about an hour until it cooled off, tried it again and now it won't start at all.
When I turn the key to the run position I can hear the fuel pump continually running. The relay for the fuel pump is clicking and one of the other relays when the key is on, (pulsating) Van has about 105,000 miles, and I've only owned it for a month so I don't know the history really. ALso it has more then 3/4 of a tank of gas.

I was in drive when I came up to a yield sign where I had to stop because of so much traffic... Once I tried to accelerate, nothing happened but I could still switch my shifter into any gear (supposedly what my dash showed). So I tried going back intro drive but again I could not move forward or backward. I'm thinking it's my linkage cable but not too sure about the look of it. If it is what I'm looking at, it is connected and could it be further problems, maybe even a blown transmission?
The shop that we've always trusted says $800.00 but from what I've researched it doesn't seem to be that involved.
when I put the key in on the relay go crazy
I have an '89 CRX HF and in the past week my car has stared to surge while in idle. I noticed that it only happens when the clutch is not engaged, and the battery light has come on. When I first start my car it will rev up to 2000 rpm without touching the gas, then it falls to a more normal idle speed and surges between 1000 and 15000 rpm. Also, battery light will turn off when I'm at Rpm's above 2000
I replaced the right rear blinker bulb and socket. The light works now, but the blinker is not. I don't know what else it could be.
Is it something I can change myself?
