Main thing to do is make sure you take note of the direction of the rotor and base location before removal. Take a picture with your cell phone.

SOURCE: I hve a 1997 dodge dakota V6 just did full tuneup

Start with a Minimum Air Rate adjustment, use of scanner is preferred to put system in bypass mode for proper setting. Or for quick set, (engine off) knock out plug for throttle set screw and turn in (clockwise) 1/4 turn to start with, disconnect battery for two minutes, reconnect and start vehicle.

You need to check wiring first. After that would be the ECM. You need wiring diagrams/pinouts and a volt/ohm meter.

1997 dodge Dakota pickup truck. it stalls sometimes at idle, and running down the road 70 mph it just cuts out, and dies.


Start with the most basic item: check your compression. Low compression gets lower when an engine gets warm.

I have no plug wire spark 1997 dodge average 2.5 v6 24 value.have already replaced crankshaft positioning sensor on it and still no spark to the wires


Sounds like a bad distributor. Had you pulled a spark plug out you may have found them wet with gas after cranking. If they are wet the crank sensor is working since both injector pulse and coil pulse rely on crank signal.

The distributors are known week points in the ignition system and used to be common when theses cars where still on the road. A reman will run you $250 U.S.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger 2.5 V6 I pulled the distributor out to replace with a new one and did not mark the position of the rotor button...how do I make sure I have the new rotor button in the corr


You would have to find the number one spark plug Remove the wire and plug. Manually turn the motor over to the compression stroke. Insert the distributor so that the rotor generally faces the number one plug.

Ignition timing 1996 dodge 3.9 v6


I found this web reference for a 2 year older Dodge that might help:
On 98 dodge dakota with 3 9 V6 how do set up the distributor
This web reference indicates a VAST difference between the V6 and V8...so you could be on the right track with your 180 degree comment:
"The V8 mark is 17.5°after TDC and the V6 mark is 147° after TDC"
Good luck on your troubleshooting ... and kudos to take on an engine rebuild!
