1997 Dodge Dakota Sport, V6. Truck died while driving and won't start.

You need to know if it is getting spark to the plugs and fuel pressure before you start replacing parts.
It could be as simple as the ASD relay.

1997 Dodge Dakota Fuel pump not running and there is no fire to the coil

Pull out the auto shutdown relay. Try substituting another relay thst is not needed to run the engine, such as the horn relay. If that works, replace the relay. If not, probe the relay socket with a volt/ohmmeter. With the meter set to vdc, connect the black lead to body ground and probe the socket. Thete shou.d be one hot terminal with the key off and two hot terminals with the key on or turned to start.
If those are good, leave your red probe in the terminal that is hot with the key on, keep yhe key on, and probe the other two terminals with your black lead. One of those terminals should read battery voltage, as it is the ground signal from the pcm. The other terminal should also show some voltzge, as it goes to the coil and other loads. After running these tests, let me know the rexults and I will try to diagnose.

Check the Auto Shutdown Relay (ASD) in engine power distribution box (left inner fender-under hood)
You should hear fuel pump for 15 sec after you turn on key

Wont start turned off truck while in parking lot restarted but no throttle response and it wouldnt continue to run,now it wont start at all,and no oder of gasoline while trying to start the engine

a clogged fuel system? check the fuel filter, fuel pump...try to start at full throttle opened. Your carb might need cleaning. Check also the ignition system.

Engine turns over but does not start, no fuel going into engine, what should i check?

Check at tank fuel pump connector for power. If you have power to the pump and do not hear it running you will need to replace fuel pump. If no power, check the fuel pump relay.

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.
