Check the camshaft position sensor inside the distributor. remove the distributor cap. take a volt meter and use either a paper clip or a small pin to insert into the back of the distributor connector (yellow wire). connect the positive side of voltmeter to yellow wire. rotate engine with starter until the rotor is pointed toward the rear of vehicle. with the ignition on( engine not running) the voltmeter should say 5 volts. if there is no voltage check the voltage on supply wire . with the key on there should be approximately 8.0 volts. if voltage is presant, install the probes of the voltmeter into the signal wire (tan/yellow) and crank the engine over to observe the voltage reading. the meter should read 5.0 volts indicating that the ignition signal is pulsing properly. if the camshaft sensor fails either test (replace it).

100 PSI is way to low, I think you have a burnt valve. Check the cylinder compression on all cylinders, no cylinder should be 5% lower than the highest cylinder pressure measured or the engine will run rough or misfire.

2000 318 ram van wont start new ecm sensors got spark gas


If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?

I have a 1987 Dodge dakota and can't get any spark?


You need to see if you have voltage at the coil with the key on.
Make sure the check engine light comes on when you turn the key on.
If not, check the ASD relay in the engine compartment.
You will need a book and a meter to test the other components.

Cleaned engine, replaced distributor, cap, rotor button, plugs, and plug wires. Now, engine will not fire. It turns over, but never cranks. Tested, with a volt tester, the coil and there was no voltage...


Check ECM for water--unhook connector, dry as necessary. ECM is driver side, front side of wheelwell, mounted on inner fender. Your ECM powers injectors and coil. Might want to check ignition fues in battery fuse box too.

Have a 91 dodge ram 3500 van and have no spark. tried new coil cap and rotor plug wires can anyone help?


Sounds like a bad distributor. Make sure the distributor has not sheared the shaft. Remove the cap and rotor, and make sure there is some tension on the shaft in rotation.

If it does, using a voltmeter, check that power is reach the coil.

Also ensure you have the correct firing order on the cap and the cap is installed properly and sealed.

1995 dodge dakota 2wd 3.9 no spark to plugs,or coil,orfuelpump


First of all let's explain how the spark gets to the plugs. There is a crankshaft position sensor and a cam sensor. They are what determines when to fire the coils and injectors. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side on top of the bellhousing, the cam sensor is the pickup plate in the distributor. As the engin turns the send refernece pulses to the computer which grounds and ungrounds the ignition coil causing it to discharge and send voltager from the secondary coil wire to the center tower in the distributor cap. The rotor button recieves the voltage and distributes it to the 6 towers (1 for each cylinder) If you say you're getting spark from the rotor that tells me the primary side of the ignition system is working, and the secondary side is working into the distributor cap. I'd check for spark out of the plug wires at the plugs. Pull a wire and insert a #2 phillips screwdriver into it, hol the shaft of the screwdriver aprox 1/8"(no more) from the exaust manifold and observe the spark as someone turns over the engine. You should see a nice blue spark. If theres spark, spray a little gum cutter in the throttle body an crank it, if it fires you have a fuel problem. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and observe it as you crank it. If theres no fuel pressure maks sure there's fuel in the tank, if so climb underneath and beat on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer, the pump may be going bad, sometimes you can jar them and make them run.

We replaced the crank sensor and cam sensor on a new 5.2 engine in a 1998 Dodge Durango. We checked and rechecked the connections and still no spark.


check the wiring harness at the coil,sometimes that plug will get loose or dirty resulting in a no spark.
The only ign system parts are the crank sensor,cam sensor,dist,dist cap,rotor,spark plugs,wires,and coil,and the ecm which controls all of these,is there a check engine light on?
run a scan tool to check for stored codes or system events stored in the ecm.
