According to Google, there are two spots around Central Pattaya road and Sukhumvit.

On spot is on Central Pattaya road, just before the off ramp leading onto the Suk (Northbound).
 https://www.google.co.th/maps/@12.9321152,100.8995666,3a,75y,59.31h,84.87t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1seZRSwHF5uZIMJjuu_yHPQw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en

The other one is on the Suk, just down from the Central Pattaya rd intersection, in the Bangchak Gas station

https://www.google.co.th/maps/@12.933486,100.9010215,3a,90y,272.08h,98.6t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sphqUlAiCRAmhbtYSqKvu4A!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en

If you are looking for an online website for those minivans, can't help you. 

The regular bus service from North Pattaya to Ekkamai is 119 baht: http://pattayabus.com/V2/en/from-pattaya/

It would be surprising that Rueng Ruen would allow competition to use their Nua facilities. The large buses are convenient and regular. I have seen some minibus services depart from Klang but I think they were heading to The Victory Monument. I also expect services are much reduced of late too.

hi, on central/klang just before sukumvit is one of the places i went to,

but they arent ending up in ekkamai.

 

on the other place on sukumvit at the gas station just after klang,

is that place on the same side as klang road or dark side ? and is it between klang and gas station or closer to nua ?

According to the map link, it is IN the gas station that is on the Northbound side of the Suk (Pattaya side of the highway). 

I've never tried using those minivans myself. It seems though that you'd be better off just taking the normal bus.

so i went to the gas station next to intersection central pattaya rd & sukumvit,

the girl in the hut pointed me to sukumvit outside gas station,

and the guy there at the entrance of gas station told me they head for ekkamai,

now i just hope he didnt just want to be helpful but actually meant what he said to the letter.

the minivan just stops at the side between sukumvit and the gas station

I find quite a few of the minibus seats are small and uncomfortable too , especially the single ones down the nearside. The trip is usually only 90 mins and I often get off before Ekamai to get on the Skytrain.

i am aware of it, its such exciting times to find out if the back support will be bearable or not

Take a small cushion or maybe could use one of those inflatable jobs. Adapt or die

the back support is too short, nothing can be done about it.

 

...and i think i found another location better suited for me,

on sukumvit from pattaya tai its a gas station 40 meters later,

and right before that gas station on soi 48 is a minivan station,

i asked repeatedly if it was really going to ekkamai, and i got a confirmatory YES every time
