Turn crankshaft pulley until TDC mark aligns with engine block pointer. Remove rocker cover and check that cylinder 1's valves are closed (not compressed). This is cylinder 1 TDC firing position.

yes the speed sensor on the top of the diferencial controls the speedometer, milage, and the ABS breaking system. that light should be on as well, I had the same problem for about a year until I got myself a diagnostic computer, plugged it in and there I got all my codes.

Dodge dakota 3.9 v6 year 2000 where should rotor point to on cap when cam gear dot at6 and crank gear dot at 12 and on tdc compression stroke it points to number 4 on cap when cam dot at 6 o clock


Make sure you are on the compression stroke. At TDC of compression stroke, the rotor should be pointing to number 1 on the cap. Either you are on the exhaust stroke, or the distributor is 180 degrees off and needs to be reset.

You'll have to put the timing cover and balancer on to find out if the mark on the balancer is pointing to the mark on the cover. If it is, the rotor should be pointing to cyl 1 plug wire.

1998 dodge dakota 3.9 v6


Pull the number one sparkplug, and hold your finger or thumb over the hole while the crank is being turned. As the crankshaft comes around to the zero mark, you will feel a slight pressure buildup on the compression stroke. If you are on the exhaust stroke and approaching TDC, there will be no pressure buildup. But even turning the crank by hand, you will feel a slight pressire on your finger on the compression stroke. When at tdc of compression stroke, rotor will be pointing to number one plugwire tower-if you have a distributor, that is. But feel for the compression on number one as the crank approaches the zero mark (tdc).
