Question about 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab
Something is keeping it from starting im sure its in the electrical but i dont know how to check, it has plenty of gas, i can even smell it trying to flood out, and the battery is real strong, but it has no sounds of firing, just cranking.
I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS). Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start. Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).

Very possible the crank sensor went out or the timing is off
