I have a 97 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5/9 in it I put plug wires on it and now it's popping and it lost power and it had a code po302 and Po 307

The P0302 code means that the cylinder 2 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks and if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 2. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done. PO307 is the same thing except number 7 cylinder. Possible symptoms - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Lack/loss of power
- Hard start
- Engine hesitation

Turns over will not start

Depending upon your level of expertise I would say pull a spark plug and look for a spark.

Any gas combustion engine requires a fuel mixture and spark to "fire" If you know your spark plugs are firing, then the problem is most likely going to be fuel flow.

If it doesn't fire AT ALL. and you are sure you have a good spark, then its probably going to be a computer controlled fuel flow issue.

Are you getting any "service engine soon" lights? Got a really good charge on the battery? Is the engine cold like below freezing? And I gotta ask.... are your sure there is enough gas in the tank? If its low and sitting on a hill its possible its not getting any gas.

-Check spark plug. It could be too wet of gasoline it you crank so many times and not fire.

I changed spark plugs and wires and now the Service Engine Soon light comes on?

The check engine/service engine soon light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Will not start

Won't start.... Do you have spark at the plugs, good fuel psi? Does it try to fire or just turn over and nothing else?

1988 Chevy Van No Spark

Have you put a spark plug fire tester on the plug wire and verified there is no fire at the plugs or do you just figure because it is getting gas if must be an issue with the fire. I ask this because the age of the truck it may have a plugged converter or muffler on the truck and if one of them are plugged it won't allow the engine to pull the fuel into the cylinders and fire. You can remove the 02 sensor ahead of the cat and the truck will start if one of them is plugged up. The truck will not run well but it will start and run ruff. Hope this helps.
