    wash the distributor cap in petrol and wipe it dry with a clean cloth, (might be some carbon deposits in cap) also wipe the rotor arm clean

    what was wrong before that? did you put new wires if there old they could have been damaged during removal /
    did you replace the distributor or the cap and if the cap did you also replace the rotor ?
    did you replace the wires one at a time to insure proper placement?
    did you use a timing light/follow correct procedures for advancement device?
    did you disconnect anything else?
    or accidentally break another component during dis//assembly?

Check if your wires are in the right places. Had the same thing on mine and found I crossed 2 of the wires.

2000 dodge durango 318 v8 quit running while driving.cranks but won't start or fire.


Check to see if there is any spark coming to the spark plugs from the distributor,if so change out your plugs, if not check from the coil to the distibutor, if so then change distibutor cap and button( if that still dossn't get it try the entire distributor), if not than check the hot wire going into the coil and if that is hot try replacing the coil but if not then i think you may have an electronic or wireing issue

1999 Avenger runs rough. Multiple Misfires


The crankshaft position sensor may be the cause of the problem, or your timing belt skipped a tooth. Hope it's the sensor.

Dodge avenger 2008


It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.
