I have no plug wire spark 1997 dodge average 2.5 v6 24 value.have already replaced crankshaft positioning sensor on it and still no spark to the wires


Sounds like a bad distributor. Had you pulled a spark plug out you may have found them wet with gas after cranking. If they are wet the crank sensor is working since both injector pulse and coil pulse rely on crank signal.

The distributors are known week points in the ignition system and used to be common when theses cars where still on the road. A reman will run you $250 U.S.

I have a 1997 dodge avenger 2.5 V6 I pulled the distributor out to replace with a new one and did not mark the position of the rotor button...how do I make sure I have the new rotor button in the corr


You would have to find the number one spark plug Remove the wire and plug. Manually turn the motor over to the compression stroke. Insert the distributor so that the rotor generally faces the number one plug.

I replaced the distributor, coil ignition module cam position sensor and still no spark in a 99 dodge avenger what could be the problem


Often, modules and sensors are not the problem, rather the wiring that connects them. Check wiring attached to each of the items mentioned to see if signals are being transmitted to and from them according to factory specs. (specs are often difficult to acquire) Also check fuses. Not so sure about the 99 Avenger but most vehicles to not determine spark timing soley from the cam shaft positioning sensor, rather the crank shaft positioning sensor. Also, the ignition coil on late model vehicles are nortorious for failing because of heat cracking the plastic housing.

I have a 1994 dodge ram b250 conversion van with a 3.9 v6 and i had to put a timing chain and gears in and now i can get it to fire no spark all it does it whirl over and again no spark from dist. to coil...


check to make sure distributor electrical wires been reconnected to distributor.and check to make sure distributor is receiving 8 volts supply from the pcm.check see if orange wire going to distributor to pcm getting power. because spark plugs not firing could be pcm, coil itself bad or crankshaft sensor bad. i would code scan vechicle before buying new parts ignition.timing off if you did not have distributor in number 1 firing position before removing the timing chain.

I have a 96 dodge avenger es, but there is no spark going to the engine's sparkplugs?


Hi, Hope I can help you.
I do not know how you have checked for spark, but lets start from the beginning.
Lets start with an ignition systems check.
1. I want you to remove the high voltage coil wire. ( That's the wire in the center of the distributor cap.) Using a good pair of insulated pliers. I want you to hold it about 1/4 inch from a good engine ground. Now you will need a bit of help from a partner. Get them to turn the key and crank the engine. You should see a bright blue and well defined spark. Ok, If you have spark I want you to slowly move the coil wire away from the engine ground. As you do this I want you to pay attention to the coil tower. (The coil tower is where the other end of the coil wire is attached.) What your looking for is arcing and sparking at the coil tower. If this happens then you need to replace the coil with a new one. If this does not happen then your coil is working fine, and we will have to move on.
Note if you do not get spark from the coil wire replace the coil.

2. Ok if you have spark now we have find out if the spark is making it to the spark plugs. How are we going to do this? By checking the rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires and spark plugs.First lets remove the distributor cap. This will allow use to inspected the rotor and the distributor cap. What your looking for is, cracks, carbon tracks and wear at the tip of the rotor. On the distributor ,look inside the cap for cracks, carbon tracks and wear on the terminals. If you find any of this replace the distributor cap and rotor. ( Note if you have any doubt of the condition of the rotor or the cap replace them.) Next lets check your spark plug wires. Lets pull off one of the spark plug wires from the spark plug side. Now inspect the wire connection for a white crusty powder. If you find crust replace your wires. Now you should check all of them the same way, but if even one has corrosion replace them all. You are going to have to inspect the wire its self . Going down the whole length of the wire. Holes cracks burn Marks and other damage. Once again if you find any damage replace them all.
I hope this will help you and good luck to all the read this FixYa

1996 Dodge Avanger ES- no spark. V6 2.5L


First check the primary (12 v ) to the coil.Next the coil center wire must have a high voltage spark to the distributor cap, if not then your coil is the problem.If you have a good sharp spark from the coil proceed to check the distributor,capacitator,rotor, points (or electronic ignition.You check the spark by having someone crank the engine while you hold the wire far enough away for the spark to jump to ground.Be careful as this is high voltage like a stun gun.Good Luck.

What my cause a misfire in a 98 dodge avenger


  1. A lot can cause a misfire:
  2. Primarily fouled spark plug(s) or bad wire(s).
  3. also a corroded distributor cap or rotor. a vacuum leak,
  4. A bad or leaking fuel injector,
  5. Engine out of time and mechanical engine faults including Compression leaks and sticking valves.
  6. More often than not it is simply a fuel or ignition system problem both of which are fairly easy to solve.
Troubleshoot your ignition by first assuring that you have fire.



If the engine does not crank at all pull the coil wire off at the cap and set it within an inch of the tower and crank the engine. sparks should emit from this wire to the coil.




You can test each individual spark plug wire this same way by just unplugging it and arcing the spark. then pull out the spark plugs to examine them and replace as necessary (on a dodge use champion plugs). the cap can be removed (make sure to put it on exactly as it came off and put each wire back exactly as it was or it will NOT fire correctly). to check for fuel disconnect the line at the fuel rail on top of the intake manifold and turn the key to ON. this will kick on the fuel pump and should push fuel out of the line as the pump primes. if this test works but you still are not getting fuel to a particular cylinder(s) start unplugging injectors while the engine is running and make a note of which one does not change the idle as this is your problem cylinder. remember any ignition or fuel system fault will disrupt your fuel/air ratio and can damage the catalytic convertor and o2 sensors

98 Dodge Avenger 2.5L V6 isn't getting any spark.


Do you mean it's actually grinding while trying to start or it just cranks & won't fire?If it's the latter,i've had to replace 2 distributors on my 99 2.5 because the sensor which isn't serviceable has failed.
