Check the wiring harness at the coil,sometimes that plug will get loose or dirty resulting in a no spark.
The only ign system parts are the crank sensor,cam sensor,dist,dist cap,rotor,spark plugs,wires,and coil,and the ecm which controls all of these,is there a check engine light on?
run a scan tool to check for stored codes or system events stored in the ecm.

98 Durango 4x4 5.2 Get code crank-cam lose

Could be in the wiring, then, for those 2 sensors. I think they would both share the same 5 volt reference signal from the computer. When it stalls or goes into popcorn phase, a digital voltmeter (multi-meter) might help catch the missing signal, or it could be a poor connection for the ground for those two sensors, also. The ground connection would be known as an engine wire harness ground. But you can check the ground wire integrity at the sensor connector also.

To check the reference signal, ground voltmeter black lead to negative batt. terminal, and voltmeter red lead to sensor connector on the reference wire terminal (there's only 3 wires: reference (5 volt) wire, ground wire, and sensor signal wire to computer). Then turn key to ON. You should see very close to 5 volts at one of those terminals. If it had stalled and you had no signal, you would have to trace that wire back to the computer. By and by, you will probably need a wiring diagram.

Replaced engine in 1999 dodge durango 5.2 and it wont start, will crank but not start.

Hi Wilson,
Check all your computer connections....If the engine is diesel make sure all air is removed from the fuel system. the crank shaft sensor and the cam shaft sensor are critical....Check the the cables are not broken and nothing has been trapped between two components which have been tightened.

1998 avenger crank no start!

I don't have experience with the avenger itself, but i've been wrenching on cars for longer then i care to admit and age myself... LOL.... but from what your describing i would almost suspect a ECU problem, but that doesn't make sense since you have injector pulses and spark. If you have fuel, air, and spark... The only thing i could suggest is recheck all electrical connections and possibly do a compression test to rule out anything that might have failed with the relearn test drive. A quick google search through some dodge forums didn't really turn up any common avenger issues, sounds like a hair pulling problem!
