Thanks Bruce, that will help me in my search for a spare. But, it looks like I have worse problems. I bought the van with a severe oil leak, and so I towed it home on a trailer. I was able to drive it off the trailer into the garage, although the engine ran pretty rough. so, I replaced the plugs, which were shot (88k miles), and fixed the oil leak, which was a loose camshaft cap. I then drove the van about 3 mile to the car wash, to wash off some of the oil, which was caked under the van all the way to the rear bumper.
The van ran, but had no power on acceleration. if I babied the throttle, I could get in to accelerate, and i made it to the carwash.
Washed off the some of the grime, and headed back home. Got the engine up to 4 grand, and about 45 mph on the way home, let off the throttle, and suddenly the engine died. No noises, but it would not turn over after that, acted like the engine was semi locked up.
the only code i have are for misfire random, and misfire on 2,4 and 6. which I didn't have before I changed the plugs!
I towed it home, and after it cooled off, the engine turns over freely, but will no longer start. I haven't had a chance to troubleshoot any further.
so, any ideas what's happening?
