Yeah, yikes. A good reason for a plastic tank.

A couple guys have replaced their metal tanks with, I think, Dorman metal tanks. Pretty sure they bought them at their LAPS. I think.

So after all this.... Van still turned off.

Feels like the idle went so low and it just cut off.
Might need to replace the IAC

By the time you are done, all the wear parts will have been replaced.

Is it only shutting down at idle? Randomly?

Random engine shutdown sounds likes coil going bad, A common issue with GM.
Should be considered a service item.

It only shut one once so far at Idle, Since the New Spider and Fuel Pump it's only done it once now. Although I did feel the idle drop really low and the engine struggled a bit to stay on then it cut out.

Was that directly after the replacement?

I would give it some time, could have been trying to adjust fuel/air based on the old values.

made a slight adjustment but nothing really changed on the idle.
the only key thing I have is that runs better with a load on the engine (ac running)
I might have to clean the throttle butterfly and see if maybe some gunk is stuck or causing a strange idle.
