Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! You may have had quite a few different things going on. A restricted catalytic converter or loss of fuel pressure will cause a drastic loss in power, if you heard a loud pounding then the noise may have been internal in the engine. A loss of fuel pressure can cause spark knock so that may have been what you heard. What year is the van and which engine do you have?Your question ended with 'AND MY SPEED CAME BACK-BUT NOW'. Was there more that got cut off?
