Question about 2003 Dodge Dakota Club Cab

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Dodge Dakota 4.7liter. I have changed the spark plugs and coil packs(all 8) and the engine is still not firing and running right. What else could it be, and is it something I could do myself or would I have to take it in? Thanks, Ray

If you have a scan tool available you may be able too see if the crankshaft sensor is giving you an rpm readin.If the scanner does not show any rpms while cranking you can suspect a crankshaft sensor. On an 02 Durango same engine had a similar problem was the cranshaft sensor working intermittently,It would be an easy repair to do.

2001 dodge dakota is just started running on 7 cylinders, i changed spark plugs and coil packs 1 1/2 yrs ago. how do you test a coil pack ?


Since the 5.9 engine uses one coil and a distributor, I will assume you have the 4.7 engine with coil on plug ignition.
The easiest way to test the coil is to move it to a different cylinder and see if the miss moves with it.
Problem could be an injector or something mechanical too.

I keep getting a misfire code on cyl 8 in a 5.2 dodge dakota


it sounds to me like your ignition coil pack is going bad. or if it is a distributor type engine, it will be your distributor cap and rotor button. but first take the number 8 spark plug wire off and check for spots where the wire has touched the exhaust manifold.

What is a firing order


This is a quick explanation:

1996 Dodge Caravan
3.3 liter


c17hydro_162.gif

The big rectangles are referencing the engine, the cylinder associated to it's "firing" are the colored circles, and the are also the location of the spark plugs....the smaller lego-looking block is your coil pack. The spark plug wires run from the coil pack to the spark plug on the engine. The wires match 1 to1 or black to black...and so on....

When these are matched to each cylinder/spark plug and it's wire leading to the matching coil pack position, this is it's "firing order". If one of the wires is "crossed" meaning, not 1 going to 1, then the engine will "miss-fire".

I GOT NO FIRE ON THE PLUGS


The spark gets power to spark from coil packs.If the connection between coil pack to spark plug is weak or loose then it will not fire.But if the coil pack as well as the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked ok then its faulty or dirty spark plugs.Clean the spark plugs with the carb cleaner liquid and let it completely dry.Then check.Also check the voltage between coil pack to spark plugs.If both checked out ok then the other possibility can be weak crank shaft sensor. Thanks.Helpmech.

Location of spark plugs in 2005 dodge dakota


To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:
  • Spark plug socket
  • Ratchet
  • Torque wrench
  • Extension
  • Flat-tip screwdriver
  • Make sure the truck is cold!!!

Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.

At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.

Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.

Remove spark plug.

Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.

tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).

repeat this process with all other sparks.

be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.
