Sorry you have a burnt valve my friend, I would rebuild it or buy another engine if you want to keep the truck.

Check the center connection to the PCM. my 98 dakota was doing the same thing. I jiggled the connection and I would loose spark and then the engine flooded until it got spark again. It would ignite in exhaust. Kapow!

Got a 2002 Dodge grand caravan sport. V6 3.3 litter backfiring apon acceleration. Like its missing.


High mileage? Take off the valve covers and with the engine idling, use a ruler to see how much each valve travels. If the camshaft is worn, one or more exhaust valves may not be traveling enough and all the exhaust gas isn't escaping on the exhaust stroke.

This was common on the old Chevys.

I have a 98 Dodge Dekota. Can someone tell me if a crankshfat sensor & a distributor preform the same thing? I was told I have a distributor and not a Crankshaft sensor.


they do a similar job but in a different way. no you don`t have a cam sensor in the conventional way, the distributor tells the computer when to fire the injectors and ignition.
