There should be a white ballast resistor in the circuit to cut the amperage back on the coil.
Check or replace ballast resistor sometimes they was mounted on firewall next to the ignition module either a 2 prong or 4 prong white ballast resistor.

Did dodge make a 429 ci engine? i ask because the sticker on the valve cover on my 1`990 ram van says 429. thank you


hmmm... Have never heard of Dodge having a 429.. Ford made a 429, Dodge has the 440 and the 426 hemi.... unless they changed the bore and stroke for some models... which I think unlikely...


hold on... rereading your post... the only motors ever available in the caravan:
  • 1984–1987 2.2 L K I4, 84 hp (63 kW)
  • 1984–1987 2.6 L Mitsubishi G54B I4, 114 hp (85 kW)
  • 1987½–1990 2.5 L K I4, 100 hp (75 kW)
  • 1987½–1989 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 136 hp (101 kW)
  • 1989–1990 2.5 L Turbo I4150 horsepower (110 kW)
  • 1990 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 141 hp (105 kW)
  • 1990 3.3 L EGA V6, 150 hp (110 kW)


  • if it happens to be a '91 they added the 3.8l

  • 1991–1995 2.5 L K I4, 100 hp (70 kW) and 135 lb·ft (183 N·m)
  • 1991–1995 3.0 L Mitsubishi 6G72 V6, 150 hp (112 kW) and 173 lb·ft (235 N·m)
  • 1991–1995 3.3 L EGA V6, 162 hp (121 kW) and 194 lb·ft (263 N·m).

    There is no spark to my coil for my 1991 dodge ram van


    you need to test power to the coil with the key turned to the on position you can supply an alternate power source to the coil but if you forget the power on and turn off the motor the coil will burn out if left power'd up for to long ,here's a bandaid fix * run a wire from the + to a switch then to the coil . and remember to turn it off when you stop the engine and turn it on to energize it . should get you your spark back if you dont want to mess with ignition or pay a garage 80$ lol good luck.
