Default Will Not Start!!

Anyone have suggestions ...

2000 dodge ram sport 1500 4x4 5.9 v8

Will turn over until the end of time, but will not fire - spark plugs look fine, spark plug wires look great - and I have no clue what else to look at.

It started when it got fairly cold quickly (-10) and wont start since (has been moist out since too)

First, do you have spark? Do you have fuel pressure? Find those answers and you can begin to figure out the problem.

Give your gas tank some good hard kicks toward the front where the fuel pump is and then try to start it. Try this a few times and if it starts up you'll need to drop the tank and replace your fuel pump.

Better yet, buy a coupla 12 packs, invite some buds over, and slide the bed back and R2 the pump, dropping tanks is a nasty job, particularly if it has any fuel in it!!

put your battery on a charger for a few hours
then do a spark check first
