Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Most likely the fuel pump went bad. But, just in case, check for spark. Sometimes a worn out fuel pump will intermittently lose pressure or stop pumping. Fuel pressure can be checked by valve on the FUEL RAIL. The valve will look like the same size as the air you put in your tires.
Most auto-parts stores carry a fuel pressure gauge that you screw on top of the valve. Most places let you rent the tool. With the key to the ON position, the fuel pump should kick on and the pressure should go up without having to crank the engine. If the fuel pressure doesn't go up to the proper PSI, you'll know the fuel pump isn't doing it's job. Check the fuel pump relay first, then the pump.
