Actually in most cases on these GMs with the 3.8, it's because they're not getting any spark, and also cause the engine to become flooded with fuel, so even harder to startup. Most 3.8s from GM had a defect with the crank pulley which caused it to come apart and loose the tooth ring and hinder the crank position sensor which is needed for the ECU to calculate when it needs to fire the plugs. I've seen this time and time again. So first place to check is the crank pulley and crank position sensor for damage and/or wear and tear. If everything seems fine on that end, message me back and we'll try a few other things.

Cranks but wont start


Whenever your car won't start, it is either fuel, spark, or air. In your case, because it died while driving and won't run very long, I think it's spark. I would guess that your alternator is no longer providing enough voltage to charge the battery, hence your battery acting like it's dead, and your car not wanting to run long when you do get it started. Use a multimeter to check the voltage coming from the alternator when the car is running. It should be 14.5V or so. If it is down around or lower than 13, replace the alternator.

1996 dakota v6 starts dies but then wont start till time has gone by


Just a thought! There is a provision where when fuel pressure drops the ignition is shut off. This is to prevent pumping when the fuel line is compromised. Monitor fuel pressure to see if it drops during normal operation.

Wont start. drove the caravan to the store then home and it hasnt started since


It could be just about anything was it driven normal before it died or was it acting up . make sure that the gas is actually getting to the engine if it is i would maybe change the spark plugs. then the computer again . but may start to get costly by guessing you may want to bring it in for test..

Fuel caps have breather holes in them - once clogged the fuel tank is sucked vacuum and the engine stalls. Check the fuel tank cap for clogged breather holes.

Died wont start turns over and trys to fire but acts like its not getting fuel?


Yep you better check for fuel. add some to the air intake and see if it starts and dies. if it does the fuel pump might not be running as the ECC relay turns the system on and also the fuel pump relay then the incheria switch may may open and theres no power to the fuel pump

Turn on the key and listen by the fuel tank for the fuel pump to hum. A common problem is low fuel pressure. It will build pressure when the key is turned, use that fuel, and then the pressure drops. Kind of like when you're using a squirt gun that's getting empty.
