I have a 1998 durango, I have no spark from disturbtor but have spark from coil


Replace the distributor cap and rotor. If you have fire from the coil but not from the distributor cap, you have a bad contact point between the cap and rotor. Replace both and you should be good to go,, if the information that you have supplied is correct.

Engine check light on;back firesand misfires;no power.new plug wiresnew coil.new cap.new rotor


Check for broken crank snout at crank pulley. If you replace a/c belt and overtighten it, it will break your crankshaft.

could be distributor. remove cap and rotor and slotted wheel. look for brown dust covering optical sensor from bad bearing. If yes, replace distributor. It triggers spark and fuel injection.

Stopped while driving replaced fuel filter and pump and crank shaft senor


I suspect you have a bad camshaft sensor. It is part of the distributor. To check, remove distributor cap and rotor (1 screw for rotor) and check for brown dust. If yes, remove slotted wheel and clean optical sensor. If car starts, you need a distributor.

Crank sensor has no affect on system. It is used for back up only.

Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on?

1995 Villager Engine light is on


you may have a broken crankshaft snout.This was a common problem on 93-95 Villagers if customer replaced a/c belt and overtightened the belt tensioner.

Did you ecently have the belt changed?
Also, remove distributor cap and rotor ( 1 screw) and slotted plate/ Look for brown dust on optical sensors. If yes clean them and see if van starts. If it starts you will need a new distributor (ebay $200) as the bearing is going.

Looking for optical lens location


The optical lens is inside the distributor. Remove the cap and rotor then remove the metal plate and it is underneath.
