Question about Dodge Ram 50
Was running fine. Decided to do a tune up. Changed spark plugs, wires, cap, rotor, & air filter. Now it won't start. checked the firing order. checked all connections. Did not disconnect the ground wire from the battery prior to changing wires.
Check the neutral safety switch

Sounds like you covered everything you did. I would pull the dist. cap back off. Take a good look at your rotor. Does it screw down or push down on. If it has screws that hold it down, take it off and make sure that it isn't 180 degree out. some of the older ones will fit either way but it wont' sit just right. Let me know how you make out.

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

these jeeps are famous for the crank sensor going when the car wont run check the injector circuit it will show no voltage if you change the crank sensor make sure you hold it in when you tighten the bolt if you start the engine and start getting misfire codes loosen the crank sensor push it in just a little bit more you only have a few thousands of an inch it makes a difference . new sensors have a cardboard circle glued on them to prevent you from pushing it in so it hits the flywheel i had an issue where it had to be pushed in twice to run right auto parts store 38.00 dealer wanted 170.00 i bought the 38.00 one hope this helps
