Just take your time and make sure your batter isn't in the car. Be careful not to cut into the copper wires. Just try to make it look as close to factory as you can and in the same pattern.

Installing a distributor in a 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.9 LT


Replacing Distributors: 1998 to 2005 models
  • Trace the spark plug wires to the distributor; it will be at the back of the engine block, in a cramped space.

  • Disconnect the negative battery cable to the distributor and unhook the air cleaner tube. Unscrew or unhook the clamps holding the distributor cap in place, and unscrew the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor connector with a screwdriver.

  • Matchmark the distributor housing and the rotor for later realignment, as well as the distributor housing and the intake manifold. Unbolt the holding clamp and remove the distributor.

  • Set the engine at Top Dead Center (TDC) mark of the No. 1 cylinder compression stroke with a socket with breaker bar (long-handled ratchet).

  • Install the Ram distributor, replace the clamp and lightly tighten the bolt. The distributor part number is A1303801 from Parts Train, but numbers differ from different manufacturers. Order using the model, year and engine size.

  • Turn the distributor in its seating so the rotor lines up with the No. 1 cylinder mark on the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor. Bolt the clamp bolt to 200 foot pounds (22.5 Nm).

  • Reattach the CMP sensor connector and use the screws or clamps to replace the distributor cap. Connect the air cleaner tube and the negative battery cable

How do you change a positve battery cable on a 1998 dodge avenger car?


First a little more clarification would be helpful in, Why do you think the cable needs replaced? If the cable is corroded at terminal connection a new connection fitting is much more simpler than cable replacement. Nonetheless, remove the negative battery cable first, then the positive. (1)Clean the corroded area's with baking soda and water mixture (you should wear eye and hand protection- battery acid will eat through clothing in a matter of minutes).Scrub gently with nylon brush -using a wire brush can cause sparks and may cause a fire from hydrogen gas escaping form battery. Flush with clean water and your ready to start the next process. (2)Assuming you will adding a new terminal connection fitting - cut off bad fitting with wire cutters or hack saw, skin back wire about ONE inch and install new cable fitting.(3) install / reconnect battery. (4) Your cars computer will be cleared of all learned shifting patterns and other feedback information. It will revert back to factory preprogrammed settings. Average cost of replacement cable clamp $3.50. New cable cost to starter +$30.00

Happy motoring.
