How to remove a stripped out spark plug from a 1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2 liter


Pain in the rear end. but it can be done. Remove the head. and pound it out. Use a helicoil the re thread the hole. If you have to do this, redo the heads, if it has above 170,000 miles , replace the engine. Not worth the head job. But if it were mine. I'd replace it if it had anything above 130,000 miles.

Dodge ram engine smokes when stated and skips


What color smoke? Black is emissions related, blue/black your burning oil and white your burning anti-freeze. With the "skip" your REF to, you probably have a bad spark plug, wire, or bad cylinder and burning some oil or coolant. CK plugs , wires & do a compression test. Pressure test Radiator for head gasket leak.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 4.7 that overheated once. I replaced water pump thermostat fan clutch and radiator hoses. Problem was fixed and then a day later it started making a terrible ticking sound so I...


The sure sign of a blown head gasket is that white smoke along with a loss of coolant with no apparent leak. It overheated, you have white smoke, and if you are loosing coolant you for sure have a blown gasket, cracked head, or both. A compression test will verify a blown gasket or cracked head. I suspect you are on the right track and know what has to be done.

I own a 2007 dodge ram 1500 pickup with the 4.7 liter magnum engine. I am changing the spark plugs but where are they or what do I have to take off to get to them.


Well you have spark plug wires that run to them. It's a 4.7L so you will have 8 of them. They run into the engine block I will post a picture for you.

Okay so make sure when you take them off you know what wire goes where from the distributor cap. Sometimes the book isn't correct if the car has had the electronics redone. Take them out with a spark plug socket and replace but don't tighten too much. Tight but don't crank on it. Also if you're doing the plugs maybe consider doing the wires, cap, rotor while you're at it. If you have questions just ask and good luck!

My dodge ram 1500 is overheating and burning the coolant. I already changed my radiator and the thermostat, and it's not leaking but I can smell like burnt coolant, I have to be putting more cooling every...


I would defiantly check the water pump, can you feel pressure in the rad lines? when you changed the rad and thermostat out, did you run your vehicle without the rad cap for awhile to ensure that there was no air locks within the system?
Water pump is located at the front of the engine behind the fan.
Good Luck! hope this helps.
