    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? It is and EFI system- so no cleaner can
    be injected.
    I do not see a spark in the cylinder when the wire is out.
    I changed plugs/wires/ distributer cap/rotor and still won't kick
    over. Oh and I have gasoline in the tank :)

    Could it be what's called an O2 Sensor-would a vehicle act like
    that...or something simple like coil wire?
    Can anyone give me more suggestions? Thank you for your help.

    I had a 2001 have a something close to what you had. My issue begain with
    misfires and stall. Took a few good tries to start it back up. The common
    item that was often failing was the crank pickup sensor (behind valve cover
    pass. side. on the bell housing.) These are known to fail. simple bolt to
    loosen and cable plug. It was a arm reach with me with a extension and
    socket. Problem never came back after I replaced it. **Crankshaft position
    sensor fault code**
