DODGE DAKOTA CHECK ENGINE LIGHT PROBLEM

2000 Dodge Dakota • 107,000 miles

RUNS GREAT, WENT TO START IT AND IT WOULD NOT FIRE, JUST CRANKED. TRIED IT ABOUT 6 TIMES AND STRTED, RUNS GREAT. IT DID IT AGAIN. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WAS ON FOR ABOUT A DAY BOTH TIMES. ANY SUGGESTTIONS? CAN HEAR FUEL PUMP AND ONE TIME I PRESSED ON THE ACCELARATOR AND COULD SMELL GAS, SO MUST BE GETTING FUEL.

If the check engine light was on, have the computer scanned to identify trouble codes. Also, if it happens again, see if it will start with starting fluid. If it does, there is a fuel delivery problem. If it still won't start, chances are you lost spark to the plugs.
