    There is no carburetor on this car, so don't have to worry about that. You may have a worn out fuel pump, because if you put in 2-3 gallons of gas the van should start up within 20-30 seconds of trying to start it.

    Thanks dandd,
    I figured out that our driveway is not level. Once van on level ground shook back bumper up and down a bit and it started right up. Went straight to gas station to fill up.
