Default 2000 durango cranks but wont start

hello all, i've been reading through these forums and can't find my issue so here goes.

changed plugs,wires and distributer about 2 mo's ago and truck ran great. about 1 month ago out of the blue my truck would crank but not start, if i crank for like 2 min's and hold my foot on gas the truck starts real hard and then runs like theyres no problem. a friend told me to change the battery, that didnt do it, changed tps and that didnt do it, cleaned iac and still no luck. 2000 durango 5.9l slt. sorry if this is long and rambling. also pulled plugs and they were all junked up so i changed them again and still same problem.it is starting to get a little cold here not sure if that has anything to do with it.....

the connection for the ckp is towards the back on the top of the engine, it's not very difficult to get to. check to make sure it has good contact

Electrical taped? Did you buy this truck used? If so, I hope they didn't cut the wires and splice them! Thats not horrible, but can cause you trouble down the road if they are just spliced, I would take the electrical tape off and take a look!

If that doesn't work, I plug up the OBD II scanner to the truck and see if any stored codes are on it.

Well duh, you can't get a 1st generation Durango that is not used?????


Anyway,

Change the Crank sensor, and it also could be the pickup sensor under the distributor, as well as a coil, and also fuel pressure (fuel pump).
