when I start my 2008 e250 van and then slowly shut off.
My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Hi - This "starts, then stalls" issue is most likely fuel system related (low fuel pressure, malfunctioning coolant temp sensor, air leak in the intake, stuck open EGR valve, but ignition problems are also possible. You don't mention the Check Engine light being on, but if it is, getting the problem codes is the first order of business to expedite diagnosis and repair. Most parts storeswill read the codes for you for free. I would recommend an inspection of the engine for start-up problems to resolve this issue. A mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs
