No CE light and no codes? First determine if you are missing spark or fuel. Listen for the pump running at the back of the van. Remove a plug wire, stick a screw driver in the end then hold the metal shaft close to metal structure (1/8 inch or less) while you crank the engine. Should see an intermittent spark

One common culprit for an "out of the blue" stall is the crankshaft sensor. They often fail without throwing a code.
