My van will start, run for a few minutes then die. When I try to start it, it just cranks and doesn't seem to have any spark. Changed the coil, same thing happens. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Any codes? And how did you test the spark?

Mine (E250 same year and motor) does that. I think it initially runs lean, perhaps because the automatic choke is sticky . Until it warms up a little won’t idle unless I pump the throttle even couple of seconds. After I drive it just a couple hundred yards it idles fine.
