    As well as the fuseable link, it could also be a blown ballast resistor, these are bypassed for cranking and reduce voltage across the coil primary when the engine is running.

Check your fuseable link, it is normally a secondary 140Amp lead coming off the +ve terminal of the battery. If this is unplugged or blown the engine may OR MAY NOT fire when cranking and die when the key is released.

Do Your headlights work ?

Is it sparking ? You don't have to take out a plug to check spark, you can use a spare plug on one of the leads.

Is gas coming through the exhaust ? (smell).

My 1998 dodge 1500 laramie (5.9 liter) won't


hi,

no,

check to see if its getting fuel. find the fuel rail service valve(it looks like a bicycle tire valve on the fuel line and has a cap on it)
hold it open while you crank it to see if fuel is present. if no fuel then its time for a fuel pump. if theres fuel pressure there during cranking then I would suggest taking it in to a shop to have the codes pulled on it rather than trying to diagnose anything else further...jm

Hi, I have a problem with a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 series 5.2 Liter. It will crank over but won't start every once in a while it will start and run for about 20 seconds, then it dies and won't start...


check all your vacuum lines. if there is a vacuum leak, the truck will crank, but not start. if you need a vacuum diagram, go to www.autozone.com create a profile it's free, add vehicle. put in the info of your dodge ram. then from the main screen, where it says select a category, select vehicle repair guide. on the next screen select emission controls. on the next screen where it says select a chapter, select vacuum diagrams. as you scroll down just click on the diagram for your engine. hope it helps. good luck.
