the car cranking over has nothing to do with the fuel pump
The car will crank all day(with a good battery and no fuel pump
If the cranks one time and then quits you need to be looking at the starting system NOT fuel system
it might be the cam shaft sensor it might be the crank shaft sensor the best thing to do is replace them bolth. but it does sound like it may be either one because if one goes out the other will still work but when starting the car it will take longer for it to read from either or the one sensor that is still working because they work together to tell the system to deliver the gas. im pretty positive that it is either the cam or crank shaft sensor
could be a lot of things from spark plugs to crank sensors. id check the spark plugs first but dodge has a big problem with crank sensors going out though. but it could b a number of things other than that
The coils only power up during cranking check that first. If it sounds funny cranking,ie. cranks faster or slower than usual,then he's probably right about the timing belt. If it jumped the heads need to be replaced or rebuilt,both costly. Would be cheaper to put a used engine in.
you need to ck some basics you could have a vacuum leak which would hide during warm up but cause havoc when hot,the leak would cause high idle then your pcm would try to lower idle to spec thru use of idle control motor causing surging idle ,also fuel pressure needs to be checked while acting up,may be more cost effective to pay for an hour of diagnostic.
