I have a '99 Dodge Dakota 4x4 with a 3.9 it was mine then I gave it to my son he doesn't want it anymore he doesn't want to put money into it so give it back to me. So I started doing some of the work that it needs. One of the things was it hasn't had a tune-up and sometime and I know one of the spark plug wires was loose so I put a new cap, rotor, plugs and wires. And yes it ran before just not very good. Now it cranks over it has spark at the coil I even took the coil off of my 01 to double check it that didn't do any good I re-replaced the cap and rotor because as it turns out the little button on the bottom of the cap was missing and I didn't notice it at first still cranking won't start. Definitely getting gas. I even had a brand new spare pickup coil that I replaced I thought what else do I have to lose still won't start. I'm out of answers and I need help ASAP if anyone has any ideas I would much appreciate anything and everything. I'm having back surgery in 10 days and I can't have this sitting under my carport. I just don't know what else to look at and just for the record the distributor is turning as it needs to be. Thanks in advance. I look forward to some ideas.
