FIRST HAVE A SCAN DONE TO CHECK FOR CODES, IF CODES ARE PRESENT FIX FIRST. IF YOU HAVE NO CODES CHECK FOR FUEL AND SPARK. CHECK FUSES FOR ECM, FUEL PUMP, INJECTORS ECT.

If its a diesel first thing id check is smell fuel if it smells like gasoline that will do it, or your pump solenoid wire came off there's two of them on mine,( I have a Dodge 92 D250 PU), or it could be sucking air in the line, (lose fittings?), just go through the process of elimination

I had a similar problem and believe it or not it was the CAT. An easy way to test for this is to remove the O2 sensor right in front of the CAT. Once you removed it, plug it back in while unscrewed from the exhaust pipe and start up the truck. If it runs fine, the CAT is your problem. This is just a guess and it would be an easy and very cheap($0) test. You did not say if the truck was diesel or gas. Mine is gas that was exhibiting the same problem as yours...good luck!

SOURCE: 1998 dodge durango running fine when parked. next

Go to AutoBeef.com and you will see there is a problem with th 98 & 99
Durangos. I took the advice to buy a refurbished PCM "Brain" from an online Florida company and my car has worked great ever since. Google for refurbished PCMs my cost <$300.00 and only 3 screws to change out. CAll the PCM company and tell they staff about your problem -- see if they think it is the brain. Sounds like same problem I had.

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

I have a 93 altima that will crank but will not start...about a couple months ago i went to my work and shut off my car. it was running fine when i shut it off.. when i came back out and started my car...


this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power
