Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Here are some steps you can use to narrow down the problem to something else:
1) Turn key all the way to start but do NOT start the car and listen to see if you hear the fuel pump in the rear buzzing. If not, then thats the problem. If you hear it then proceed to step 2
2) Have someone else crank the car and open your hood and pull one of the spark plug wires, stick a piece of metal inside it do NOT touch, and aim it to any metal part on the car to see if it sparks. If it doesnt then thats the problem.
3) while NOT cranking the car, try to disconnect the rubber hose from the fuel filter to see if there is fuel in it. If there isnt, then that the problem. (pinch fuel line or clogged filter)
Usually one of those the 3 things are the issue But if all are ok, then it could be much bigger problems like timing, Crank sensors, compression, blown headgaskets etc...Good luck
