Default 97 Ram 1500 5.2/randomly not starting/turns though

wait for an hr or so & starts/runs like it never happened.It's my understanding that crank sensors are working or not;jumped the ASD relay toget it home trying to avoid rollbacking to the parts place & back home--other Ram owners past experience and/or knowledge would save me time and money--tyvm for your advice in advance

So it turns over but won't start. Wait an hour it might? I'm I on the rigt track? Well it only happen if its run a while? And do you have a check eng light at start up? This is why I ask . If its run a while could be a hot fuel relay or even shorted if its speratic. Now sounds like you jumped a relay start there. Another thing if its still speratic and you don't have cel at start up computer might be to bame check connection (that's only if you don't get a cel at start up) don't monkey arround where you don't have too.
