WONT START NOT SURE WERE TO LOOK FIRST

1996 Dodge Truck

1996 Dodge Truck V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 225xxx miles

i was running errands on luch break and as soon as I pulled out of the bank parking lot my truck died on me. It started right back up then died again 2x then it was done for good and just turned over. Thought I was out of gas so got more and still nothing. Think maybe a fuel problem because I had a small gas leak coming from somewere on top of my tank. Only seen it running down the front of tank and frame when it was parked on a steep angle. Thanks for any advice

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
