1998 Dakota died, no spark

1998 Dakota, 2.5 L

Died going down the road, with a big bang. Checked, and it's still in time (thought the timing belt may have slipped), it has fuel pressure, but doesn't have any power going to the coil.

Any suggestions? We haven't had time to dig into it yet.

On the 5.9l if the crank sensor goes bad you will have no spark. Nor sure if that motor is similar.

It is, just bore difference.
Though, his description sounds more like a major failure than a simple stall out and no crank scenario.

Could someone tell me the location of the crank sensor, so we could check it at least? We have the book for my 2001 Dak, but it doesn't cover the 1998.

Thanks for the tips!

behind the passenger side head. It goes in through the bell housing.

Thanks, my dad just said he looked there...and it's not there. I didn't think to mention that it's a five speed manual, if that makes any difference.
