Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
If you have a friend to turn the engine over, little by little without starting it would help or better yet, pull the cap off the distributor leaving the rotor on, and with number one sparkplug out, cover the number one sparkplug hole with your finger but don't stick your finger in there, it'll get crushed, get your friend to bump the engine a little at a time, and when you notice a sudden whoosh of air take note of where the rotor is pointing... hello number 1, then clockwise or whichever way the rotor turns, apply the firing order... by the way it is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2... good luck.

There are 3 different engines for that year but the 5.2 and 5.9 are the same but gave you a picture of both anyway. I hope this helps and good luck.
