1998 Dodge 1500 Pickup out of time spark

What could be wrong with my 98 dodge pickup. It recently just quit running. I have changed everything I can think of and it still will not even run. It just suddenly quit running. Every expert I have talked to has no clue what could be wrong. Any ideas?

    I've got both spark and gas. Could it be anything but the timing to it? Or is that the problem you think, it just doesn't seem like thats what it is.

    any other ideas besides the timing for my pickup?

I would begin by checking 2 things. You can loosen the gas line that to the engine and turn the key on and see if the fuel pump is pumping gas to the engine. If it does, I would remove a spark plug wire and check to see if you have any fire to the spark plugs. If it has fuel and fire. I would check my timing.

I have a 98 Dodge ram 1500 pickup cranks over but wont start. Was running fine last night. Started this morning for 3 min then died and wont start


Does it have spark at the spark plug's ? Does it have fuel pressure ? Is the anti-theft light on ? Have you check ASD relay in the under hood fuse/relay box ? There are videos on youtube diagnosing engine cranks no start condition .

97 dodge pickup with 5.2 I have strong spark out


If you have a strong spark at the coil and plugs are not then it sounds like plug wires. They can degrade over time.

remove the unit and check your wiring harness dodge uses a two part factory harness if the plug with all the speaker outputs came undone it would still turn on and function normal but you'd have no sound.
