Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
I had to replace the dist. cap and rotor and had it apart too long to remember where the plug wirs go. Please help. Replaced the distro cap, rotor and plugs, started her up and she runs rough, like she's not hitting on all cylinders. My wires are connected as follows: #1 cyl to term 1 on distro cap #3 cyl to term 4 #5 to 6 #7 to 7 #2 to 8 #4 to 3 #6 to 2 #8 to 5 This is the way they came off (to the best of my knowledge). If this is incorrect, please tell me correct cylinder to distro cap config. I tried 1 to 1, 2 to 2, etc... and motor would not crank.
Okay remove your driverside sparkplug the one closes to the front this should be #1 piston put a screw driver in the hole but dont let it bind, slowly click the starter until the srew driver come up all the way up this is top dead center TDC now look at the rotor and where the cap lines up this #1 second is#8 piston on the pass side closes to the fire wall or cab so, on the engine #1 piston234 onthe driver side 5678 on the pass side and in order on the cap it should be 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2 also make sure you didnt drop the dist in wrong and hav it 180 degrees backwards dont get frustated stop and try again later also make sure this is the right firing order for your dodge i gave you a chevy fire order but i am almost positve this is the order for all v8s
