Did you check the timing belt to see if it broke? It ha a 2.5 and it has belt. Remove timing cover at the front of the engine and have someone crank it while you watch the cam to see if it turns. If it doesn't turn, replace the belt.

Hi brought 1989 for daughter driving to her place started overheating on freeway...notice that the fan wasnt working...?once cooled down filled with coolant start ok..but still no fan. 2nd.problem...

for the fan, wire the small fans directly to the positive terminal of the battery. when after driving and finished driving disconnect to save battery. use a spark plug tester, (can be found in walmart) plug at the end of the plug and connect to a nearest ground e.g., valve cover screw or body. if still not working, check fuel pump if it receives electricity or if you hear it run at "ON" position. or try sanding off your distributor. (if it is EFi.) it is a common case of 80's to 90's cars was the distributor.

Durango won't start. turns over fast and tries to

Thats what mine is doing right now.

This sucks alot but here are steps to take.

1. Check fuel pressure to make sure its not the fuel pump
Should have a valve on the fuel line to press make sure gas comes out when the key is in the ignition in the on position
if there is gas then...

2. check to see if you have spark coming out of your coil.
if there is replace distributor cap and roter, should not be more than 20 bucks, then try the ignition module (60sih dollars) then Crank sensor if its a 99 5.9 Liter

After that i am unsure those are the things that usually go wrong, it could also be the spark plug cables, if it just stopped working like mine did randomly i would check the distributor cap and roter then the sensors first though. Cause the chances of 8 sparkplug cables going out at once are slim

Also make sure the roter inside the distributor is turning.
As if its not turning that is the issue,...

Won't start turns over but thats it

If you can't hear the fuel pump when you first turn the key to "on", then it's not working. ANd if you have spark, then your problem is gas. Change fuel pump.

There is no test for module in distributor, but they often cause this kind of problem. Also while in there, check the pickup coil wires to make sure they are intact.

Won't start!

the spark from the starter is a loose wiring or short starter,but the main thing is you can crank it,check it, you have a spark at plugs if yes check if your pump is working
