4x4 v8 1998 dodge truck won't start


well if ur not getting spark and u changed all of the ignition components lets think about the computer in order for the ignition to work you have crankshaft position sensor that fires the fuel injectors and the spark change that and if still nothing then change the camshaft postion sensor that sensor tells the computer that the 1 piston has came all the way up and it tells the crankshaft sensor to do its thing

Engine no spark


If the engine has no spark, check for voltage at the coil positive terminal when the ignition key is on.
If there is voltage, the problem is on the trigger side of the coil (pickup, crank sensor, ignition module or primary wiring circuit).
If there is NO voltage at the coil, the problem is on the supply side (the ignition switch or ignition wiring circuit).

First you need to determine if it is spark or fuel.
Try some spray starting fluid or use in inductive timing light to see if there is spark at the plugs.
Then if the problem is fuel, you would need to put a pressure gauge on the line, check the O2, air mass, and temp sensors with an ohmmeter. (bad usually are 0 or infinite)
Could also be relay or control module.
If spark, it could be fuse, ignition switch, or crank position sensor/distributor pickup.

Next time have components tested before replacing them.

you can check for spark by plugging in one of your old sparkplugs to one of the spark plug cables and letting the sparkplug lay on the bare metal of the engine. Turn over engine to see if the spark plug is producing a spark. No spark? Check under the distributor cap, take a look at the rotor for damage.

Im not getting spark to my spark plugs


Remove the distributor cap, so that the rotor is visible. Have an assistant turn the ignition to crank the engine over. If the rotor does not turn when the engine is cranking, then you need a timing belt or chain.

If the rotor does turn, then replace the coil.
