My 93 dodge Dakota. 3.9 cuts out. I replaced rotor and cap and spark plugs and wire. Not sure what's going on.


These trucks have corrosion issues in the wiring connections as they age. I would start at the left fenderwell and unplug the starter relay and check those plug contacts first. When my 1992 150 did this, I ended up unhooking and cleaning all the plug in connections on that side of the truck, including the computers. I added di-electric grease to the terminals as well. The problem has not come back. You did not say if the truck restarts hard or not. The ignition pick up inside the distributor may also be a problem, but those normally will just stop working all at once.

I accidentally removed the cables from the distributor on a 1992 Dodge Colt without marking them. The connections to the spark plugs are unchanged. Could you explain how I can determine the proper order...


if you remove the spark plugs and move the distributor cap so you can see the direction of rotation have someone crank the motor over is short bursts noting direction of rotation of the rotor and put your finger over the #1plug hole.when #1 comes up to top dead center you will feel pressure against it and hear a compression sound.then you can look into the cylinder and turn over the motor by hand and watch the piston rise in the cylinder until its at the top and doesn`t start to move down.this will be close enough.note were the rotor is pointing and this will be were #1 is on the distributor cap.then install the other wires in the direction of the rotor turning in the proper firing order.the order should be 1-3-4-2.

1987 dodge d150 w/3.7 running rough. replaced distributor,spark plug,cap and rotor.now the truck won't start. tried rotating dist 180 degrees still nothing.


take #1 plug out bring the cylinder up on T.D.C.(top dead center) check timming marks making sure that it is T.D.C, on the firing stroke, look at rotor see if it is pointing at #1 on the cap,also check plug wires make sure they are on the right place on cap , and plugs,and check firing order

90 dodge w150 won't start. It is acting like out of time but it is not. Backfires like crazy when trying to start. Replaced computer, ditributor, cap, rotor, wire, plugs, coil, pick-up.


Sounds like firing order or you have moved 1 cyl up or down
on cap
Rule of thumb take out no 1 plug and take off cap put your thumb
over plug hole so you can feel compression stroke if you have timing
marks line them up if you look at the rotor arm this should be no 1
check firing order and away you go

Just wondering if you have a breakdown diagram for a 1992 dodge colt 1.5l distributer


I do not have a breakdown diagram for a distributor, but just the firing orders and description of ignition system for the Dodge Colt and related models (based on Chilton manuals) if that's what you're looking for: FIRING ORDERS Fig. 1: 1990 1.8L SOHC Engines Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182009.gif

Fig. 2: 1.6L DOHC Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Distributorless Ignition 84182010.gif

Fig. 3: 2.0L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182011.gif

Fig. 4: 1.5L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182012.gif

Fig. 5: 1993 1.8L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: counterclockwise 84182013.gif

Fig. 6: 2.4L Engine Firing order: 1-3-4-2 Rotation: clockwise 84182014.gif

To avoid confusion, replace spark plug wires one at a time. --- Distributor REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Although the distributor can be removed from the engine no matter which cylinder is about to fire, it is a good idea to have number one cylinder at TDC before distributor removal. 1.5L, 1.8L, 2.4L SOHC Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect and tag the spark plug wires from the distributor cap.
  3. Disconnect the distributor harness connector.

    Fig. 4: Ignition system for the 2.4L engine 84183004.gif

  4. Loosen the distributor retaining bolt and remove the distributor from the engine. To install:
  5. Rotate the engine until No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on its compression stroke. NOTE: Be careful not to turn it to the No. 4 cylinder TDC on its compression stroke by mistake.
  6. Align the distributor housing and gear mating marks.

  7. Install the distributor into the engine, while aligning the fine cut (groove or projection) on the distributor flange with the center of the distributor mounting stud.
  8. Install and tighten the distributor retaining bolt.
  9. Reconnect the distributor harness connector.

No spark from plugs. changed plugs, rotor and distributor, cables, and primary coil.


i would start with the basics- did you make sure you followed the correct firing order when you installed your new plug wires? when you changed the cap/rotor did you notice any track marks inside the old cap? was the old rotor burnt/corroded? ive got a 97 ram and the cap is a b*tch to get to being buried in the back, could you have inadvertently moved the rotor off its timing mark? mis-aligned the crank sensor when installing your new cap? i would recheck how the cap was installed, just because you were able to position it proper and tightened down the screws doesnt mean that you didnt accidently pinch the wires on the crank sensor, or turned the rotor off its mark. also when pressing on the plug wires on the cap did you look for the "1" mark on the cap? this is your reference point for firing order. im not sure these are you problems, but rechecking your work to make sure something wasnt knocked off-kilter, or wrong plug wire placement would confirm the problem lies other than what was replaced. i hope this helps
