The most common cause is usually the crank sensor, but at this point I would not jump to conclusions without testing it as well as all electrical connections pertaining to the ignition system etc anyone can fix a problem by just changing everything but thats not the best way to go!

99 Dodge Durango v8 5.2 L crank no start changed Distributor cap & rooter, spark plugs, and ignition coil and still won't start


It still sounds to me like you are not getting spark. Re check the spark plugs that they are properly tightened and that the plug wires are connected. I am thinking this is from the distributor cap to the spark plug where the problem is.

I wouldn't think catalytic converter, without it giving some indication that it was going bad, but without testing it is hard to say.
When it cranks and won't start, check for battery voltage to the coil on the dark green wire, with key ON. If you have power at the coil, it might be a bad coil. If no power to the coil, it could be a Crank Position Sensor or the Cam Position Sensor inside the distributor. If one of those is bad, it can stop the computer from sending power to the coil.
Good luck.

The crankshaft position sensor was seriously problematic in those old jeeps. It's located towards the top of the bell housing slightly to the driver's side I think.
