Van will sometimes stop when hot, usually when idling at a stop, or won't start some times. Replaced fuel pump and checked most fuses.

How do you hookup RH front door latch to handle?

When warm, starter will engage but immediately disengage when engine fires.
This began after daily ambient temperatures began to settle in above 40 degrees. I only mention this because the engine also began to develop a backfire about the same time. The backfire would occur when I would ease off the gas pedal during low speed acceleration, or when the engine slowed following a shift to a higher gear.
I thought the change in ignition behavior may be somehow tied to the unusual starter condition.

Any answers out there? (About the starter or ignition issue)
