    Yes. This is always a true statement of fact ;-p Perhaps you meant to ask HOW to correctly connect the spark plug leads? If so, please state which exact model of '96 Dodge Ram as there was more than one engine option available.

SOURCE: i took off all the sprak plug wires and i don't

Take the number 1 plug out and rotate engine to tdc on compression stroke and where the tip of the rotor button sits is number 1 wire and follow the firing order from there going in a clock wise cirlce on the cap the firing order should be marked on the intake somewhere.
But anything more precise I would need to know what engine.

Change spark plugs fuel filter fuel pump engine can not start

Wow! You've really got your hands full! 1) Verify the fuel pump is installed correctly and has power. 2) Verify the fuel filter is installed correctly. 3) Verify the spark plug wires are correctly installed. The number one reason for a car not running after an owner changes the spark plug wires - the wires were not installed to the correct cylinder.

It don't fire no sprak

If there is no spark at any of the plugs, i would look at the crankshaft position sensor, if there is spark on 1&4only, or 2&3 only, there is a bad coil pack for the two common plugs/wires.

What engine? Why wouldn't you use a pen or sharpy to mark the wires with the cylinder number as you removed them. Next time make a schetch of the dist cap and put numbers on it. If you do not know the firing order make you own number system till you get that info. Of coarse do it before you remove stuff.Go into a dealership or local repair shop and get a tech off to the side to help you.

How do i change the wires and plug wires om my taurus?

Follow the wires from your ignition coil (located at the drivers side of the engine) to the spark plugs. Unplug these wires. Using a 5/8" sprak plug socket (deep well with a bit of rubber at the bottom to protect the union of the wire to the plug), unthread the spark plugs. Place new plugs in the cylinder heads (you can use a thread protector available at the counter of most auto parts stores). Plug your new wires into the newly installed new spark plugs. The ignition coil has a diagram telling you which port is for which cylinder. On the V-6 3.0L Vulcan engine the rear bank from left to right is 1-2-3 and the front bank from left to right is 4-5-6. There you have it.
