You can start with you ecm or points, which ever it's equipped with. Do this with a test light...switch the vehicle on, check to see if there is fire in the distributor, if not then trace your wires back to the battery. This is just a good starting point, please respond back if this isn't helpful and I'll try to go further into the vehicle. Hope this is helpful, please rate solution. Thanks

SOURCE: Location of oxygen sensor

The only thing that comes out of the exhaust with a wire coming from it, is the oxygen senser. It is right behind the manafold.

SOURCE: I have 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 gas engine and it

The problem I had with my '89 Dakota was it would suddenly stop running while driving. After from 10 minutes to an hour I could start it up and drive on. It started happening more and more often. I was in a rush to get the truck running so I replaced both the computer and the timing module in the distributor to fix the problem. However, I suspect the real problem was the timing module was failing causing the engine timing to go out of spec and computer sensed it and shut down the ignition to safeguard the engine.

Good Luck, Bob

SOURCE: 1995 dodge dakota 2wd 3.9 no spark to plugs,or coil,orfuelpump

First of all let's explain how the spark gets to the plugs. There is a crankshaft position sensor and a cam sensor. They are what determines when to fire the coils and injectors. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side on top of the bellhousing, the cam sensor is the pickup plate in the distributor. As the engin turns the send refernece pulses to the computer which grounds and ungrounds the ignition coil causing it to discharge and send voltager from the secondary coil wire to the center tower in the distributor cap. The rotor button recieves the voltage and distributes it to the 6 towers (1 for each cylinder) If you say you're getting spark from the rotor that tells me the primary side of the ignition system is working, and the secondary side is working into the distributor cap. I'd check for spark out of the plug wires at the plugs. Pull a wire and insert a #2 phillips screwdriver into it, hol the shaft of the screwdriver aprox 1/8"(no more) from the exaust manifold and observe the spark as someone turns over the engine. You should see a nice blue spark. If theres spark, spray a little gum cutter in the throttle body an crank it, if it fires you have a fuel problem. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and observe it as you crank it. If theres no fuel pressure maks sure there's fuel in the tank, if so climb underneath and beat on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer, the pump may be going bad, sometimes you can jar them and make them run.

My 88 raider did the same thing. As long as I had my foot on the gas pedal it would run but if I lifted off the gas it would die. It ended up being a vacuum line. I can't remember which one (possibly the AAP) but not sure. I did replace the AAP diaphragm and all of my vacuum lines.

86 4.3 4BC 1500 Chevy Die rolling up to light Started up and ch of fuel and it died 3 times now no start smell fuel and quit yellow spark Have replaced cap rotor plugs wires EGR coil ECM Rebuilt carb


It sounds more like a fuel problem to me then a bad coil or spark ign the spark should be blue but its hard to see in daylight
You say you rebuilt the carb are you sure your main mixture jets are at least 2 to 3 turns out off the stops .
Try pouring fuel down the barrel fill the float bowl if it runs then dies its fuel don't let it catch unfire you should have 45 sec. of run time then adjust the the mixture screws 2 turns is base but when its is running good turn them in 1 at a time and give it 30 sec. to adjust until it starts to stumble then back it out a 1/4 two 1/2 turn then repeat on bank 2

Could be a problem in the ignition circuit. Check or test coil and ignition module-one of them may be shutting down or shorting out when they get hot.
Verify by checking for spark at a plug wire immediately after it shuts off: if no spark, it is an ignition problem. Besides the coil and ignition module, other possibilities are the crank position sensor, cam position sensor, ecu, the ASD relay (automatic shuit down relay-it's in the power distribution box under hood). If that relay fails, all power is cut to coil and fuel injectors, and maybe the fuel pump also.
Good luck.

Engine won't start


If you have spark at the right time, compression, and fuel, you should have combustion.
Was it running before you had the work done ?
Is it possible the distributor timing is off ?
You know for sure the plugs are firing, not just the coil ? And the accel pump in the carb is spraying gas ? And the choke is closed ?
A major vac leak like the PCV valve hose or intake gasket could keep it from starting.

I replaced fuel pump , coil, pickup coil, rotor, distribitor cap, fuel filter, and fuel lines. why does it keep shuting down? had the same problem before,and the last thing i put in was the pickup coil.


I need to know if it has a carb or fuel injected. When it shuts down do you have spark check it with an old spark plug hooked to the wire and grounded to the engine. When it shuts down does it squirt gas down the carb when you move the linkage Or when you crank the engine can you see fuel going down the throttle body

It keeps shuting down i have replaced fuel pump, plugs,coil, when driving it will just shut down if let it set for a few min it will start back up now it will not start...


You need to figure out which one you are losing. You are either losing fuel, or spark. When the engine quits, immediately open the hood, and check for spark. Let us know what you find. Good luck!

I have a 1984 Dodge d150 4x2 truck. I was driving down off the highway and i lost all power. i thought it was the fuel pump, i replaced it and gas flowed better. i started to drive again and i lost power...


have you checked for spark? check all the leads going to the coil from the battery and from the coil to the distributor, if any are loose or faulty it will cause you to lose all power, also check the terminals.
