That is definately the most improper way to go about the diagnostic process i realize that it costs money to take it to a shop but you have already spent more than it may have cost to properly fix it. Your vehicle is so new even if you change evrything you may not make it start it does not have to ne a "failed" component"
You are are going to have to take the truck to an OBDII shop and have it diagnosed you have no chance of "hitting" it There are security system issues possible and you cannot go on another persons experiences same truck, same engine, same color everything same symptoms and it can be an entirely different problem. Stop now and take it to Dodge and be done with it Believe me unless you own an OBDII scan tool and have many years of diagnostic experiience you are likely not going to fix this one ,sorry anyway what are your symptoms? Exactly every detail

97 dodge ram no spark


then i would replace whats called the hall effect sensor its that black plastic plate you see when you take dist cap off. just pull rotor and lift up the sensor.dist cap is what holds it on.also under the sensor will be a stamped sheet metal piece that looks like the top of a castle wall. make sure its not loose on the shaft.if it is then new dist will be needed

1995 dodge dakota 2wd 3.9 no spark to plugs,or coil,orfuelpump


First of all let's explain how the spark gets to the plugs. There is a crankshaft position sensor and a cam sensor. They are what determines when to fire the coils and injectors. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side on top of the bellhousing, the cam sensor is the pickup plate in the distributor. As the engin turns the send refernece pulses to the computer which grounds and ungrounds the ignition coil causing it to discharge and send voltager from the secondary coil wire to the center tower in the distributor cap. The rotor button recieves the voltage and distributes it to the 6 towers (1 for each cylinder) If you say you're getting spark from the rotor that tells me the primary side of the ignition system is working, and the secondary side is working into the distributor cap. I'd check for spark out of the plug wires at the plugs. Pull a wire and insert a #2 phillips screwdriver into it, hol the shaft of the screwdriver aprox 1/8"(no more) from the exaust manifold and observe the spark as someone turns over the engine. You should see a nice blue spark. If theres spark, spray a little gum cutter in the throttle body an crank it, if it fires you have a fuel problem. Install a fuel pressure gauge on the schrader valve on the fuel rail and observe it as you crank it. If theres no fuel pressure maks sure there's fuel in the tank, if so climb underneath and beat on the bottom of the tank with a rubber hammer, the pump may be going bad, sometimes you can jar them and make them run.
