That has gotta to be a huge relief ! Since you've now had such a positive outcome, you're allowed to take 1/2 the cost you envisioned to pay out for repairs and purchase something you've wanted to get for the Van...my current rule, and it definitely helps me recover from the initial emotional stress.

I love this rule lol. But I think the fox shocks and wheels I want to do first will be a little more than the $200 repair bill.

Fault or not I'm planning on sending them a copy of the repair invoice and crossing my fingers they reimburse me on it. Theres been a few issues over the past week I've found from a shotty wiring job on the aftermarket radio, this, the back seat not having bolts in it ect. They have been good to deal with so far. They actually dropped the purchase price by $1000 after I had bought it to compensate for the other stuff. I'll see what they say, but I dont like to let my greed exceed my need you know.

Just a follow up, got the van back and shes running great. Dealer said a "cheap" air filter was installed and had fallen apart. It apperantly broke in half a one half had flipped up to block the maf and air flow. All parts of the air filter were present and accounted for in the airbox too. Got lucky. Thanks everyone. Now back to planning next weekends adventure.

Wow, I guessed this one right! I just caught this post and as I read your plight my initial thought was bad MAF/vacuum leak. I had the same thing happen on my V10 motorhome about 1500 miles from home.

Don't overthink coils on this motor, they really aren't that common of a problem statistically. Fuel pumps do go on these vans but not until higher mileage/years.

You've bought one of the most robust and reliable trucks ever, don't get a bad taste in your mouth just yet. Glad you got it sorted, and welcome!

Yeah, great news. Glad it worked out like it did. I second 86Scotty's comments.

Regarding those AAA recommendations...not sure if their policy is the same everywhere but around here if your rig is not on pavement, they're not coming! They do not respond even if you broke down on a good smooth dirt road.

Had the same sorta thing happen last summer. Took rig in for a oil change day before leaving for baja. Got to Yuma spent the night van was really running, idling and sounding funny. Drove it around a parking lot for an hour did a bunch of googling and youtubeing. Luckily narrowed my thinking down to the air filter and that's exactly what it was. Dealer didn't put the air filter housing back on correctly. Even wrote on my invoice the van was idling strange which it was. Almost aborted the mission. The housing is difficult to close correctly that is for sure.
