Terminology help....You have spark currently, that means the condition is (cranks but wont start.) or (tries but wont stay running, start/dies) Now you need a fuel pressure and volume. You can add some fuel at the throttle, to see if it wants to start. If your fuel is delivering into the cylinders but wetting the plugs? you might want to verify timing and a compression test.

Could be the purge valve for the EVAP system is stuck open. When this happens raw fuel can be sucked into the engine through the EVAP system and cause flooding. Were the old spark plugs wet and smell of gasoline? If so I suspect that's what is going on. HTH. -Jim

If you replaced plugs and verified spark happens, and you are sure fuel is delivered by the injectors, the starter cranks the engine normally, then you could have a timing or compression issue? We need more info about what it is actually doing so we arent assuming anything.

well I have a 08 Dodge Avenger and it cut off on me in the rain again today but this time it wouldn't start at all when I first bought the car it did this but I got a jump and it ran fine. but from time to time while riving it would feel like it would loose power or gas going from the break to the gas it seemed to hesitate. but never really thought anything of it I had no engine lights or anything until after the car cut off and wouldn't crank. ugh can someone help me please?
