i have a 98 dodge durango with a 5.2l engine it ran out of gas a few days ago and it wouldn't start back up. after trying for 20 minutes i finally got it going. yesterday i left in it and while driving it died on me but started right back up i pulled up to a stop sign and it died and won't start again it cranks but nothing happens i thought it might be the fuel pump but you can hear the pump when you turn the key to on position you can also smell gas after about the third time you try to start it what else could it be and how can i check with out spending a ton of cash im a young mom with 6 kids the newest being 6 week old twins need my truck and need it fast
