Done a tune up on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 liter magnums and it was running pretty good and now it's spitting and missing and sounds like Hell?? I went over everything and the plugs are tapped right.What...

It was running pretty good before you did the tune up? You changed the plugs, but did you change the wires? New plugs with old wires can cause problems - I had this same issue with my Dodge 360 many years ago. Also, check, double check, and then check again that you have the correct wire on the correct plug. Follow them all the way from the distributor cap and verify that they are in the correct firing order sequence.

We replaced the distributor cap and rotor on our Dodge Ram Van 1500, but one wire popped off as we were working and we aren't sure they are in the right order anymore. How do we find a diagram to help us...

the firing order is usually stamped on the engine itself. Take off the distributer cap and turn the ignition to see which direction the rotor is turning.

The distributer cap has the number 1 plug marked . After finding the firing order, place the wires 1 where the cap is marked then in the direction the rotor is turning (ie:clockwise or couterclockwise). Keep looking . Most every motor I have seen has the firing order maked right on the engine.Or the owners manual ?
