Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Turns over fine i can hear the fuel pump kick in and i changed the spark plugs and the distributer cap was corroded so i changed that but nothing seems to help. any ideas?
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.
