I'm talking about a 95 g20. I'd come up the hill home from work a hot hot day and park and eat dinner, when I came out, I go to start and it would turn motor like there was no gas. I'd stop, wait a minute or 2 and it would start. It began to happen once in a week or two or three weeks. The van otherwise would run fine no problems noticed ever.
One day I got gas on a hot evening went back and the same thing, turning over like it was dry of fuel or SPARK. It did start finally like it alway does not a stumble or hesitation like a switch was pulled.
A mechanic came out he said, change your ignition module, I did get one, put the heat sink compound on the back installed it and its never failed to start in 3 months. That module sits in the distributor.
I hope this helps someone.

I had what sounds like the same problem I had with the 78 Shorty I owned. Turned out to be a “crack” inside the distributor coil wire….when it got too hot (like after parking it…no air flow like when moving) it would expand and open but after it cooled down it would reconnect and be able to start it again. Drove me nuts.

Recently purchased (10-2021) a 1991 Chevy G-20 “Shorty”. Past vans are a 1976 Chevy G-10 (purchased new in 1976 & sold in 1995). A 1978 Chevy G-20 Shorty purchased in 2010 and sold in 2015.
