Hello Rita, There is no piece of equipment that tells you what's wrong with your van. The diagnostic gadget you rented only gives you generic OBII codes, not manufacture codes. You need to check fuel pressure and volume with a real fuel pressure gage, not just disconnect the filter to see if it flows.
