Doesnt turn over or doesnt start, big difference. The cap has nothing to do with turning over. Check battery terminals, ck if headlights operate. It it does indeed turnover, ck your wires and the coil wire. check if you have spark.

The hick up could be a vacuum leak from one of the two (or both) of the hoses directly to the left and above the distributor cap. Check the hoses for tightness or just replace them if you think they are leaking air.

I have a 2002 dodge ram 1500 and need to replace distributor cap. and roter Can anyone tell me where it is .


What size of engine do you have? OR you can follow the spark plug wires. Start at the engine, put one in your hand and follow it to the other end. Where it stops is the top of your distributor cap. If you have a 5.2L engine it will be on the top at the back of the engine, you will have to remove the air filter to get at it.

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.
