Then I Noticed That The Ignition Switch If I Turned The Key Off,Pull It Out, Put It Back In Start It The Check Engine Light Was Out And The Trans. Shifted Fine. The AC Still Blows Hot Air. This Is My Sisters Car, And She Told Me That She Was Listening To A CD And When She Ejected It The CD Was Hot.. I Took It To Parts Store They Ran The Codes. And Told Me He Wouldn't Clear The Codes. And To Take It To A Trans Shop... I'm Thinking It's The Computer On It..
Hard To Explain... The Engine Is Not In A Pull.. And It's Not Slowing The Van Down. It's Like When Your Using The Cruise Control, And When It Kicks Out At The Speed It's Set At. But
It Goes Out,Then In,Then Out. I Have Been Told It Was A Random Misfire On No. 1 / 3 Cylinders. And Random Misfire Depends On Who Run The Computer On It.. And About A Week Ago While Driving Home At 45 mph The Trans. Went To Growling/Squealing Then It Quit, Next Day It Did The Same Thing, But It Stopped Pulling.. I Still Think It's Electrical.. Anyone Got Any Ideas?? Or Needs A Parts Van?? Lots Of New Parts..

All parts have been replaced, even the ECM a couple years ago. O2 sensor has been replaced 3 x's in 2 yrs. Ignition coil 2 x, crank sensor, plugs, complete fuel tank and filter change, some other type of sensors and still the problem continues. Just paid shop yesterday, problem was supposed to be fixed with another ignition coil and plugs, on the way home and work today, stalls while driving. Takes a few times to get it going again. Had Autozone last week say it was missing on 1, 3 and 5 and ignition coil issue. Just do not understand this. It is our only vehicle and we need it for work.
