    I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota SLT V8 5.2L. 5sp. It started to die when
    driving and after sitting for a little bit (1/2 hr) started back up
    again and
    ran for a few more days.
    Now will not even start-starter kicks over and fuel pressure is 36#.
    So fuel pump should be okay?
    I do not see a spark in the cylinder. I changed plugs/wires/
    distributer cap/rotor and still won't kick over.Can anyone give me
    more suggestions?

    Fuel pressure is supposed to be between 44-52 psi.
    If you are not sure about the pressure reading you can spray a throttle
    body cleaner into the throttle body to see if it starts, if it does you
    may have a bad fuel pump. The next thing would be is to check for fault
    codes with a scann tool.
