Won't start, help! 1999 5.2 Durango
Wife tried to leave for work this morning, and the 1999 5.2 Durango won’t start. Cranks over strong, and sometimes after trying to start it grumbles like it wants to start and the engine turns over a few more times before it quits. I squirted some starting fluid directly into the throttle body and tried to fire it up, with no change. So I'm guessing its not the fuel pump or filter. I used jumper cables from the Dak just to give it some extra amperage while cranking and still no go.
It is due for a plug change, I will get to that after work tomorrow (Friday) just to eliminate it as a problem. Any thoughts or suggestions? Of course it is pouring rain, and my water proof winter jacket could only take so much rain; it now looks like a soggy diaper.
