1991 Pontiac Tansport Problems

Hi, i got a 1991 Pontiac Transport

Van will not start unless Ether is sprayed into the carb.

When started with ether car idles high for a bit then idles lower and lower untill it eventually stalls. Van is driveable 2footed, cuz itll stall if i come to a complete stop w/o my foot on the accelerator. Car will aldo stall out if the van is driven for a long period of time.

car will stall and will start back up but when u put it into drive itll sputter and stall again.

usually hafta wait 30min to an hour before u can drive it again.

can someone please help me with this problem. Ive been trying to fix this for over a year. (tried new fuel pump/filter and didnt work)

If you haven't checked for codes yet, I would do that first. You should be able to read the codes yourself on the GM OBD-1. Check here:

Post back what you find. I'm thinking you have a problem in the idle air control system.
