Dirty fuel filter. There could be several other reasons. Another thing to check is the fuel pump relay. This could be going bad. It is in the power distribution box in your engine compartment. If the van is starting to over heat the computer should be shutting off the van until it cools to prevent engine damage. This condition should be giving a check engine light. If it is try having the code read and see what it says. Good luck.

Yes that denial would be an impairment to driving, especially if your bad driving habits risk a serious collision.

It is very important to not be distracted while driving. If a baby is driving a car, it would be very distracting to the baby if he was also being held. Please don't hold a baby while the baby is trying to drive. How would you like it if someone was trying to hold you while you were driving? Not very fun, now is it?

It could be your connection to your battery. If its bumped loose, you would lose all power, even while driving.

Numbers that one person would text are not numbers that another would. They are specific to individuals. With that said, texting while driving is not a wise thing to do.

A driving license and insurance would be the most important things to have.

There are 2 fans that would be running while you are driving and that is normal... the compressor fan if you have the air conditioner running and the radiator fan runs to help keep the radiator cool while the engine is on.

I would say that banning text would be a conservative idea. Texting is considered to be a liberal and free idea, so banning it while driving would be conservative.

It is important to maintain speed while driving, unless coming to a stop. A car would decelerate if there was not enough fuel or electricity to keep the car running.

My 99 Ford Windstar was doing that; as well as hestitating to shift when driving. It was diagnosed with a bad torque converter.

If one of my tires suddenly lost pressure while I was driving, I would pull over as soon as possible and replace that tire with my spare tire.
