Default 99 1500 5.9 engine suddenly stopped running

I have a 99 ram 1500 w/5.9. About 4 months ago I did a tune up{cap, rotor, spark plugs, and wires}. Was running great then all of a sudden nothing. No spark have fuel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My father suggested the crank shaft postion sensor may have gone out. If that is the case does anyone know where that would be located and if I can access it.

I've seen this happen on other engines and the crank position sensor was one culprit. It's down low, right rear of engine, near the exhaust collector to catalytic converter flange and the bell housing bolts. Look for a wiring harness leading to it.

If you PM me your email address I can send you a picture/diagram of the location from the service manual.

Also make sure your cap didn't come loose and twist to the point where the computer can no longer adjust the timing.
