I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota that I have had since 2006 and never had a single problem with it. I drove out of town an hour and a half and parked my car. I moved it the next day but then it sat for two more days. I went to leave and my truck would not crank. It turned over fine, it is getting gas to the gas line and the spark is fine. We have checked all the sensors and they are fine. We changed out the spark plugs and still will not start. Tried starter fluid and gave open air to the system and still nothing. Thought it may be the key so we tried the spare and still nothing. I have three friends who work on cars and they are all stumped right now. We have literally tried almost everything and it will not start. I have never had a single problem with this truck and it just stopped out of no where. PLEASE HELP!

Engine cranking, cranking is starter action, did you visually check for spark at the plugs? What is engine litre size? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Engine cranking, check primary voltage at ignition coil and fuel injectors, same wire, dark green wire with orange tracer, use a dmm to check for voltage, digital multimeter. Where applicable, does the distributor rotor turn when you crank engine? Check compression.
