Well, the timing on your ram is computer controlled. is the truck in drive when this mis-fire occurs? or at idle? youve addressed part of your ignition w/the cap-rotor-plug wires. did you examine the old cap for carbon tracking? did you install the rotor properly? i know on my '97 ram the dist is feakin' buried in the engine it would be easy to rotate the rotor while installing/removing it so the timing mark is off. does your engine have the right plugs installed? your plug wires follow the correct firing order with your dist? you did not mention anything about your ignition coil. here is how to safely remove and check your ignition coil. disconnect battery-at the coil disconnect the lead wire (TOP) and primary (BOTTOM) from the coil. label your wires, or take a pic of your ign coil before you remove it so if you forget where the wires go, you have reference point. remove mounting screws and remove coil. clean coil to remove rust/dirt and wipe coil terminals off. inspect case for damage. with a multi-meter, check coil primary resistance by selecting ohm's and then place + and - leads on the pos/neg terminals on the coil, dodge used 2 brands of coils either a "diamond" or a "denso" primary resistance for the diamond mfr'd coil will be between 0.97-1.18 ohms. secondary resistance 11,300-15,300 ohms. Denso primary resistance 0.95-1.20 secondary resistance of 11,300-13,300 ohms. to measure secondary resistance place one of the leads to one the primary terminals and the other lead attatch to the large center terminal. compare your readings to the above values. if your readings are not within range of the above values, your problem is the ignition coil. other causes you may consider is faulty: speed sensor, throttle pos sensor/trans issues like bad pressure solenoid (actuates gear changes) a fault in your overdrive system. hope i have helped!

98 Dodge Ram 1500 Cant go over 25 mph or rev past 2000 rpm I changed 3 sensors and it still does it with no codes being thrown Completely stumped on what causing it or what to try to do next Any idea?


Check for any fuel leaks. Keep it parked while someone presses the gas pedal. look around for any fuel leaks. A loss of fuel pressure will give you those symptoms. Check the fuel pump too. Good luck!

In park, this could be normal. ECU does this. around 2800 to 3500 RPMs. If driving, have the codes read. No codes , could be a clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump(have the pressure checked), or clogged catalytic converter/s. With no codes, something is restricted..

My 03 wrangler will not rev past 3,500 rpm


Do you have a trouble code for the throttle position sensor ?
If you have normal fuel pressure, the TPS would be the next thing to check. Problem could be in the harness between the sensor and the computer too.

2000 ram 3500 deisel dies at 2000 rpm won't start


could be fuel elated, there are two fuel pumps, the high pressure pump to feed the injector system and the lift pump to get fuel from tank to the high pressure pump. Check fuel filter also and start there. The fuel pumps are expensive. What have you checked so far and eliminated?

The pump times out without a spark signal. Running you remove the vacuum line from regulator to get press. Like 60 to reg ,35/40 to injectors. Just an example not your veh spec. I have a 92 Dakota 5.2. So your issue is the missing? Need help Iam here
