Was running really rough, got new plugs, rotaet and wires now runs great but idles so slow it threatens to die.
I recently replaced the starter in my van. After doing so I started it and began to drive. About 5 miles later I list 100% power (lights, engine, EVERYTHING) while driving. After pulling to the side of the road I tried to start it but all I get is a click. I checked the the grounds, the alternator, replaced the battery, the starter solenoid and relay, and checked all fuses. Why did I loose all power and now I can't start it? Oh and no the motor did seize.
I want to change my oil pan and wondering how long it takes and what is needed tool wise. Also which other parts need to be removed.
I changed the fuel filter and still having trouble with it boging out at 50 and 60 miles per hour. I like the van it only has 70000 on it just need alittle help.
I cannot find the brake filler cap. I see the oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, window washing fluid and power steering but I do not see the cap to fill brake fluid. Can you tell me where to fide it?
When I accellerate the engines just starts working as if i am reving it and when i let go of gas for a few seconds and then give some gas again goes back to normal.

Oil sending unit seems ok; I apply gas w/ brake to maintain a steady gauge at stops. I have added "no leak" to oil, and it helps for a while. I thought this May be vacuum problem with regulator valve on side of transmission ( an oil diaphragm inside), and have the part, but no tools/ equip to replace it. Before I send it to a shop, I would truly appreciate some insight as to whether this is advisable.
To clarify my previous questions, I want to say that 1 time when I was on the frwy, I had to gun it to get on and after that , the engine made some noise. Then , something started bouncing off the ground in the back and making a metal sound on the concrete for a few sec. Esp. when I went over a bridge. It got worse and worse, then the brakes started to lock for a few sec. then release. Lock again and for a few more sec. and then again for a min. and now they won't release.
Should I just junk it or is it be repaired at a cost less than the value of the van?
I didn't get to finish from my earlier question. With frozen brakes, rear end busted, I Have to tow it.
