Ok, the ballast resistor was on Dodge 318's up until 1999 as far as I know. So there should be one on the vehicle. You can add a heavy gauge wire in it's place to it to see if it is bad. On vans it is located in the very front under the hood, driver's side. I dont know where it is on the pickup truck. Also, if timing jumps i do not believe it will spark. if you replaced the rotor, make sure it is in time. Some cycles of the rotor are out-of-synch with the oil pump and you may be 180degrees out. try rotating the rotor all the way around after marking it, of course, and see if you get spark. otherwise, crank sensor or ground sound like the all need checking. Dodge is notorious for loose ignition modules.

2000 Dodge Ram 1500 turns over but wont start, I've checked the air filter, and listened for the fuel pump, and checked the spark plugs for a spark, but I still haven't figured this one out.


Check your Fuel pump turn you key to the on position and remove your gas cap put your ears right up against the hole and get someone to turn the key on and off a couple of times you should hear a noise if you don't your pump is gone.

If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?

CANT FIGURE IT OUT


Is the fuel pump running? Take the gas cap off and put your ear by the filler. Now have someone turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). You should hear the fuel pump run for about 3 seconds. If you don't hear the pump run, the most likely culprit is the fuel pump itself. Second possibility is the fuel pump relay.
