Hi you all back again new question. :VHOT: First i had a missing problem in my 98 Durango so i replaced my plugs and wires and that fixed the problem every thing was fine until 2 weeks ago when my Durango won't turn over on the first crank which i have never had problem with ever so i will crank it a 2nd time it cranks and right at the end of the cranking it sounds like it's not going to start but it dose weird so i replaced my distributor cap,rotor and coil which i should have done when i replaced the plugs and wires o well but after i installed the parts and when i try ed starting it it didn't make any deference at all i was not 2 mad because i need to replace them parts any way now here is were you guys come in what is the most likely problem my dad said i might have to re set my distributor timing I am not sure if thats it or not what you all think holla back. Thanks for your time ~Got Dodge?

Check for proper gap on the plugs, and there is also an idle sensor on the side of the throttle body that may need to be pulled and cleaned.

Try this as well. Just cycle your key on for a few seconds, back off, and back on for a for seconds and then turn to start and see if it cranks up the first try. If it does then you have a fuel delivery problem of some sort, possibly with the fuel pump maintaining pressure.

Sounds like you have a fuel line leak if you smell a strong fuel smell after it starts.
