SOURCE: 1998 dodge ram pickup 318 eng.

If the engine seems to run fine over 1450 RPM maybe there is a vacuum hose leaking or EGR valve is slightly stuck open. Any help from the OBD II trouble codes? Or is there simply no MIL and no stored information in the OBD II computer read at the local parts store through the connector by the drivers knee?

I keep asking the same question for a 1971 dodge 318-1 v8 engine and get every year but what im asking


The firing order for a Dodge 318cid/5.2L is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise rotation.
Cylinders are numbered like this.
Pass side 2-4-6-8 front to rear.
Driver side 1-3-5-7 front to rear.
The firing order is probably forged into the intake manifold. Number one tower on the distributor cap is the one facing the number one plug or the driver-side headlight.
Distributor rotor at Number 1 plug terminal points to front intake bolt on left side of engine.

Diagram or picture of where the spark plug wires go into the distributer on a engine number 318-1


For this you have to determine when the #1 cylinder is at TDC (Top Dead Center) - when it would be firing. Take the distributor cap off and look at the rotor - it would be pointing at the #1 spark plug wire on the distributor. The wires would be connected it order around the distributor cap starting at 1. The sequence is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 in a clockwise fashion.

Need spark plug and distributor wire diagram for dodge ram van 1994 with 318 engine


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.

Ignition coil isn't getting any electricity, so it wont send a signal to the distributor cap, therefore not sending elecricity to the sparkplugs..... This is on a 1992 Dodge Ram 150, 2 Wheel drive, with a...


Hi, Hope I can help you.
I do not know how you have checked for spark, but lets start from the beginning.
Lets start with an ignition systems check.
1. I want you to remove the high voltage coil wire. ( That's the wire in the center of the distributor cap.) Using a good pair of insulated pliers. I want you to hold it about 1/4 inch from a good engine ground. Now you will need a bit of help from a partner. Get them to turn the key and crank the engine. You should see a bright blue and well defined spark. Ok, If you have spark I want you to slowly move the coil wire away from the engine ground. As you do this I want you to pay attention to the coil tower. (The coil tower is where the other end of the coil wire is attached.) What your looking for is arcing and sparking at the coil tower. If this happens then you need to replace the coil with a new one. If this does not happen then your coil is working fine, and we will have to move on.
Note if you do not get spark from the coil wire replace the coil.

2. Ok if you have spark now we have find out if the spark is making it to the spark plugs. How are we going to do this? By checking the rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs.First lets remove the distributor cap. This will allow use to inspected the rotor and the distributor cap. What your looking for is, cracks, carbon tracks and wear at the tip of the rotor. On the distributor ,look inside the cap for cracks, carbon tracks and wear on the terminals. If you find any of this replace the distributor cap and rotor. ( Note if you have any doubt of the condition of the rotor or the cap replace them.) Next lets check your spark plug wires. Lets pull off one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug side. Now inspect the wire connection for a white crusty powder. If you find crust replace your wires. Now you should check all of them the same way, but if even one has corrosion replace them all. You are going to have to inspect the wire its self . Going down the whole length of the wire. Holes cracks burn Marks and other damage. Once again if you find any damage replace them all.
I hope this will help you and good luck to all the read this FixYa

Have a 91 dodge ram 3500 van and have no spark. tried new coil cap and rotor plug wires can anyone help?


Sounds like a bad distributor. Make sure the distributor has not sheared the shaft. Remove the cap and rotor, and make sure there is some tension on the shaft in rotation.

If it does, using a voltmeter, check that power is reach the coil.

Also ensure you have the correct firing order on the cap and the cap is installed properly and sealed.
