Question about 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Truck
You are not the first or last one to do this. To removet the broken you've got to have almost sugical capabilities. I've done this several times so it can be done. You've got to drill the center out of the broken bolt. This takes great care and a very steady hand. After you drill out the center place a screw removal tool in the bolt hole and back it out. You may want to remove the distributor, keep track of the position of the rotor by matrking it on the edge of the housing with a sharpee. Good luck, Dana

Tips for a great answer:
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
