1997 areostar
I'm having issues idling my areostar. It seems to have spark and fuel. But stalls right after the key is turned. Fuel pump and filter has been replaced along with spark plugs and ignition wires. I believe the current orientation of the wires is 1-5 2-6 3-4. I could have the order on wrong but I've not gotten a definitive order online. If anyone has the order or any other suggestions.. fuses are all good. I'm starting to suspect the coil.

Your coil pack is not in order possibly. The plugs are like the diagram, but the coil pack is switched one position. Other than that, crank position sensor?
