Maybe you have a bad battery or the spark plugs are faulty. It could also be that you have a low fuel level or your fuel filter has clogged. You need to have your van checked by a mechanic or an authorized dealer so that the problem can be identified and fixed.

cheers guys. Sadly due to problems with towing it last night, i have no starter motor. There is fuel in there so will also check the fuel filter. The smoke out of exhaust i guess is due to the oil in turbo, and the noise maybe down to low oil level due to being sucked into turbo.
Concerned it may have caused damage to engine? will look at what you have suggested. man thanks
