my van will run for a while then act like it is not getting gas and die. If you wait about 5-10 min it will start back up. Can not find a gas filter other than the one in the tank. Need ideas about repairing it please.

    Verify if you have spark when it's a no-start, it may have a failing crankshaft position sensor , or a failing coil.
