Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
I need to know if there is a a way to turn the cap so that its in the right postion
Sometimes distributors are in a little different. If it was running alright before you changed the parts, and does not run well now, and the distributor is turned to the angle it was before you started, it is not the distributor rotation that is the problem, but is either the parts you used, or the way they were put in.
But you say, “it sounds like its still missing.” This implies that it was missing before you started. Still, the fact that it runs at all indicates that the distributor is pretty close to in right.
Pull one plug wire at a time to see which one has little to no effect when it is pulled. That is the cylinder that is not working right--focus your energies there. You should perform a compression check to see whether you have sprung a head gasket leak, burned a valve, etc. If you have one cylinder with substantially lawer compression than the others, you will need to make an engine repair to overcome this.
