2005 safari loss of power and no roll over please help

Postby Mattcleg [OP] » November 20th 2014, 6:36pm

My 2005 safari is HAUNTING me. It's started with the common no start in wet weather. Eventually even while driving the van began losing power. Then quit. Sit for a few minutes then start and go again. Then it wouldn't start at all. So I have checked the fuel pump pressure it's 60lbs at the rail. I have replaced plugs,wires,ignition modual,map sensor,throttle position sensor,a full distributor, cap and coil. Crank sensor. I finally got frustrated and drilled holes in the catalytic converters to try and see if they were plugged. It would crank over but not start. Plenty of fuel, I have spark and air. I got frustrated and cut the exhaust where the Y pipe meets. Still no go. I took it tithe dealer and they replaced the pins in the ignition and cut me a new key. The van fired right up I drove it home twenty minutes loud as heck and not running perfect but I made it home. So I repaired the exhaust and I noticed it would hesitate more and more before allowing the starter to engage but no clicking. I drove it and guess what same loss of power I had right from the start. Then the van quit. Now I have that same problem and now it has lots of battery power but won't roll over. When I turn the key to the on position the security light flashes then goes out. The battery light stays on as well as the engine light but that has always been on. I have checked both fuse boxes all good. I have checked and cleaned an re connected all my grounds and wires. I don't know where to go from here frustrated. Please help. Thanks .

Could be a problem with passlock with the new ignition and key. I'd look into doing a passlock relearn. It's lengthy, but that's so someone can't just cut a key and run away with your van. I'd start there first. Loss of power, if it's a plugged converter is easy to test for. Get a vacuum gauge and run the engine to 2500 rpm. If you start seeing the vacuum drop, then you have a restricted exhaust.
A temporary fix usually becomes a permanent solution, therefore it does not exist.
