you did not state engine size....and I assume you are referencing your spark plugs.....if the TPS or IAC(throttle position sensor,Idle air controls ) are faulty these will cause performance problems

The load range refers to what used to be ply ratings, it is now the grade for holding pressure at load, a "D" range is equal to 8 ply, and the load index for this tire is approx 2300lbs/tire, the "E" rating is equal to 10 ply, and the load index is approx 2700lbs/tire. If you are hauling 12 passengers at 200lbs/passenger plus driver total is 2600lbs. I would say the "E" rated tire is better for that application. If you need more info you can go to google and type in understanding tire markings or ratings, and there are several sites that will cover all tire markings in depth, I hope this helps, let me know

I used a screwdriver and hammer to break loose the pads from the bracket they slide onto. Must have been subjected to a lot of heat. Seemed like the pads were almost welded to the brackets. As for the rotor, once you remove the caliper, you have to remove the bracket that holds the caliper. There are two bolts on the back side that secure it. Takes a strong arm and a cheater pipe for more leverage. After this bracket is removed the rotor will slide off.

Continually push the brake pedal to set the brakes. (With park brake off). Brakes are self adjusting and will adjust to correct position.

Instructions too long to write here. you can find them in any cheap manual such as haynes. Most important part of job is to make sure you remove ALL of the old gasket on block before replacing with new, and to re-check all hose connections after you run it for a while to prevent leaks. Make sure you can remember where belt routing is so that you're not stumped when you go to put it back on.If it overheated, it's wise to replace thermostat...they get weird after overheating.

Yes that is correct.There is also a coil that fires the spark plug for each cylinder.There are specific tests for each component so you can find out which part is bad.compression could also be an isue not likely if the problem came all the sudden.

You have a cylinder misfire. That is the only thing that will flash the check engine light. With the van running spray the plug wires with water. Watch and listen for arcing. If there is, replace that or all the wires. It is possible for new wires to be bad. Next check the cap and rotor buy spraying them with water, than removing and looking inside for signs of burning or anything that will hinder the spark. Last check the spark plugs for carbon tracking (small black lines in the porcelin), caused buy hair line cracks. If you dont find any thing, check it again. With no other codes it is very unlikley that anything else is causing the misfire.

I have the same problem with the side doors of my 04 express. I put penetrating oil on the hinge pin with a hypodermic needle (hard to find). It is important that the oil gets into the hinge. I bent one set of hinges and broke a hinge because I waited too long to oil the hinge. The door may not close correctly because the hinge may be slightly bent. Keep all other hinges well lubed especially during the winter months when the hinges can be exposed to road salt. Fixing a bent hinge is difficult at best.
