Without a voltmeter and a wiring diagram, you're in a bit of a fix. But I would be wondering why the ignition switch isn't sending power to the coil primary positive terminal, and why it isn't causing the fuel pump to be turned on, too.
Is your check engine light on with key on? The computer should sense ignition is on and briefly turn on the fuel pump through the fuel pump relay, on just long enough to pressurize the fuel line to the injector. But no fuel or fire-you'd better start by checking if the ignition switch has power in and power out, and work your way to the coil.

SOURCE: 1988 dodge ramcharger 5.2 liter.

Hi, sorry you've been thru a lot I guess the past couple of days. I cannot read what the other experts told you. Do you know if the ASD relay is coming on? If not, pull it out, turn the key on, and push it back in. If it clicks when you push it in, it is working. If not, I recommend you interrogate the relay socket to see why it is not getting a signal. I can provide instructions to interrogate. Do you have a 12 volt test light or voltmeter?

Firing order for 3.9 ram charger

The Ramcharger only lists a 5.2 or a 5.9 liter engine for that year, but the D-100 pickup showed a 3.9 liter engine. Here are the the diagrams for all of those engines, and the 5.2 and the 5.9 liter have the same firing orders.

3.9 liter engine.

Fuel Filter

if you have a throttle body fuel injection the filter is most likely a canister type filter inside the frame on the drivers side close to the shifter linkage.
