like she wants to jumps out of her skin, the kids
live it and I cannot take it, I am a female with
limited resources, I just replaced the alternator and
repaired my windshield wipers. But I have no clue

It has nothing to do with alternator . But it could be many things .ill start with easiest and most likely the issue . 1. Check for vacuum leaks . 2. TUNEUP : it’s a pain in the ass but, replace the plugs and coils . (COILS r cheap online ) . 3. REPLACE EGR VALVE, AIR FILTER, FUEL FILTER.

Thanks, I replaced the alternator because the previous one died. I will try, I have tennis elbow and at the moment the pain it too much to work on my van. Thank you though!
