The only way I can think of right now is to remove the spark plug and turn the engine until number one piston is at top dead center. You may be able to use a piece of copper wie, about #14 or larger, to determine when the piston is a top dead center. You will then have to determine if both valves are closed. I have used a spark plug adapter with a supply of low pressure air to see if there is any resistance to air coming in. If both valves are not closed, rotate the engine 180 degrees and that should be the firing position for Number One. If you have not previously removed the distributor, the rotor will be pointing at the Number one position. Replace the cap and you should be able to determine the Number One Plug wire position.

I have a 2003 dodge stratus rt coupe it is misfiring on cylinder one all I want to know is on the distributor cap where is it located OR are the distributor caps for dodges numbered differently


Look at all the spark plug connections on the cap. There should be a raised number 1 next to the connector. You can also take out the #1 spark plug , turn the engine by hand with your thumb over the spark plug hole and when compression pushes your thumb off the hole watch the timing mark on the dampener. When the mark lines up with the TDC mark then the rotor on the distributor is pointing to #1 spark plug wire.

Can't locate sparkplugs


Sparkplugs go down into the engine. You have as many as cylinders you have. Four cylinder, four plugs, six cylinder, six plugs. The plugs carry spark through the wires that hook to your distributor cap. Most caps are located on the right of the engine. That cap hooks to your distributor. So, if you have a four cylinder engine, you have four wires. You should see them crossing the engine block. The plugs are down in the engine block. The wires go into the engine block. Unless you have coils, which look like a small square, it has plugs.

Where is the distrubitor cap located on a 2001 dodge neon i drove through a puddle and everyone is saying i need to dry the cap but i dont know where it is located


I don't know for sure either - many newer cars don't have distributor caps. The easiest way to accomplish the task is to trace a couple of spark plug wires back from the engine block to the coil pack or distributor cap - whichever you have. Wipe off any water on whatever these wires go to. If you have a cap, and if you are having rough-running problems, take off the cap and wipe out the inside with a clean rag. Coil packs should be hermetically sealed and the only place for a problem would be right at the spark plug wire connection terminals or possibly at the low-voltage connection.

A quick way to distinguish a distributor cap from a coil pack if you don't know the difference: count the high voltage wires. The distributor will generally have one more than the number of cylinders; the extra goes to a separate coil. A coil pack will wires going to two cylinders in each section, but will never have more high-voltage wires than the number of cylinders.

You should also inspect the air duct, especially the air filter. Dry out any water here just to make sure you don't **** mud into the engine.

Where is the pickup coil located on 1997 dodge ram


he pick-up coil/stator assembly is located under the distributor cap, and once the distributor cap is removed from the distributor, just remove the ignition rotor, and then simply un-plug the wire connector to the the pick-up coil/stator and then lift it straight up and away from the distributor, and when re-installing the pick-up coil/stator be sure to align the square tab and the rounded tab on the pick-up coil/stator to match with the distributor housing and with the distributor cap and install the ignition rotor and the distributor cap, and then re-connect the wire connector to the pick-up coil/stator.
