If you have electronic ignition, you could have a loose ground wire, also in the distributor models , the condensor could be weak and or not connected properly, also may check that points in distrbutor are spec, and not sticking when hot and opening and closing properly on the shaft when engine is turning over.

You are posting your reply in the wrong place but I accidentally found it. Check the ceramic resistor block (usually on the firewall, drivers side or on the fender, same side) and make sure it has continuity If that fails, ignition will not work. Also check that you have voltage to the coil.

I have a 79 New Yorker with a 318 it has a hard time starting we just replaced air filter,fuel filter and lines plugs, Roter and cap it floods real easy


The old chryslers are very touchy. It sounds like the float is stuck on the carburetor flooding the engine or it is stuck closed not allowing enough gas to get into the cylinders. Pull a spark plug and see or smell if there is gas on it.If so is there spark? You have solid state ignition I believe. Pull a spark plug wire off of a plug and hold with insulated pliers and see if you are getting spark to the plugs. The engine needs air, fuel and spark to run. Check firing order for the wires 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 is the firing order. That should get you started. Let me know if you need more troubleshooting.

Where is the ignition module located on a 1990 dodge van with a 318 motor


usually you wont have spark if you have a bad ignition module....how did you check for a good spark? And how did you check if it was getting gas? I'm just questioning your choice of words in your post because it doesnt make much sense to me, but I'm here to help.
Usually I just handle issues like this as a NO START issue and go from there. starter fluid in the throttle body......If it runs for a few seconds, we have a fuel problem. If not, I check for spark. If the car has spark plug wires, I use an old school timing light and put the clamp on all wires one at a time and check if there is signal at all plug wires while cranking the engine to start. If the timing light flashes, I pull spark plugs. sometimes one, sometimes more; each car may be different. If the timing light dont flash as I'm cranking I inspect the module or distributor or coil and go from there. If your car is running, You wont have a compression issue.
let us know how you tested for spark and fuel so we can get a better idea of what is going on. Thanks

2000 318 ram van wont start new ecm sensors got spark gas


If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?

Hi, Ok you have confirmed that it's not a fuel problem. You need to check for spark. Pull the coil wire off of the coil(secondary lead-looks like a spark plug wire) Have some one crank it over and listen for a popping sound. IF yes, spark is at the coil, that means all ignition sensors are working. Next check for spark at ends of wires after cap. IF no replace cap and rotor. IF yes remove a couple spark plugs and check for fouling(wet, fuel etc...) IF yes replace or clean plugs and retest for starting. IF no spark is present at coil you need to scan computer and watch for rpm signal. IF no rpm signal, replace crankshaft sensor with OEM delco part. BIGGEST problem with these engines is Cap and Rotor burn out.

#1 spark plug wire for 83 Chrysler 5th ave 318


On a 318 #1 is at 6:00 o'clock on the distributor when you are looking at it from the front of the car. It turns clockwise and the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Odd cylinders are on the driver's side starting from the rad and even on the passenger's. Hope this helps.

I have abmw 3 series 1996 parked it last night perfectly ok this morning it wont start the engine turns over very quick as normal could it be because its damp and cold outside what do you suggest?


I would replace Distributor Cap & Rotor; and especially all Ignition Wires (aka: spark plug wires) When it is damp outside, old and possibly cracked wires is the leading cause of engines not starting due to wires arcing (throwing sparks to other parts of the engine) and causes no spark where it is really needed and that is at your spark plugs so the engine will start.

try and use the factory recomended coil, incorrect coil can heat up and than not acheive the required discharge to fire the plugs. also will lead to the coil failing, or ECM faulting and throwing a Check Engine Light.
