1997 dodge ram 1500 2wd 5.9 liter

Question From marla36 on 1997 dodge ram 1500 2wd 5.9 liter

my 97 dodge ram wont start is turning over but not firing. i drove it one day no problems wasnt running rough or anything like that next day go to start my truck no fire.
i changed the spark plug rotor button distributor cap wires,crank sensor ignition coil pickup coil. and had the time chain checked and after all of that it still wont start. any advice

Response From Mr.scotty

So it is getting spark at the spark plugs rite?
Your missing one of the other things hammer time posted.

Response From Hammer Time

No, he never said that.

Response From Mr.scotty Top Rated Answer

Ok.., That's what i wanted to know cause he didn't say.

Response From Hammer Time


All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed. Also, these functions can ONLY be tested during the failure. Any other time and they will simply test good because the problem isn't present at the moment.
If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money.



Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.


2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.


3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.

4) If all of these things check good, then you would need to do a complete compression test.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

is it something i can do myself conducting all the tests #1 in ur posts have been done
? is there a manual way of getting the error codes using the ignition

94 dodge ram2500 van POPPING NOISE

Question From twentyfour68 on 94 dodge ram2500 van POPPING NOISE

I have a 94 ram van with a 318 engine . It ran great until I let it set in the yard for a year or so. I;m now trying to sell it but when I excellerate I hear a popping noise in the engine. I have changed oil and put new gas in it as well as new plugs and wires. Timing maybe? Help please

Response From zmame Top Rated Answer

popping sound usually indicate backfiring through the throttle body.. if the van is high mileage it's possible timing chain might have skipped a tooth. Possible catalytic converter plugged. Might be old gas still in lines or fowled plugs because of the old gas.

Response From twentyfour68

thanks, that would narrow it down. Have new plugs and wires in it and a half tank of new gas. Probably the timing would be the easyest to check next

Response From oxracing

not saying this is it, but i had a 90 dodge do about the same thing after sitting for an extended time, on mine the lifters had bled down (is what i was told), it took quite awhile for it to level out and run decent. again just a thought.

1989 dodge ram d100 318 fuel injectioin engine wont run right

Showing 2 out of 7 Posts | Show 5 Hidden Posts
Question From leeroy1972 on 1989 dodge ram d100 318 fuel injectioin engine wont run right

My truck was running good one day it started running rough and it started losing power it idles good when in park
it is hard to start at first and its cold collered and it never was like that. I put new plugs and wires on it and fuel regulator
and fuel pump and filter and also a map sensor, cleaned injectors, coolant sensor, timing redone and also throttle control swtch.
Wat else could i check so it wont run so rough and feel like it has no power, but when u get it over 10 mph it drives good but once u get to redlight it wantss to die and wont take off right ans sometimes it will die. Does anybody know anything that could help me out.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Some ideas to check at the age:

Vacuum leaks, PCV system - sludge situation if any.

? How much was the timing off? It doesn't really change on it's own unless touched.

Clean throttle body.

One more for now is check lash in timing chain. TMK if OE it would still be a nylon cam gear and they don't hold up well with time, never mind miles. It's an interference engine (pretty sure) meaning valves can crash into pistons if it goes - worth paying attention to those even though they can last a long time,

Response From leeroy1972 Top Rated Answer

how do i check timing chain and what is tmk or oe mean....

Response From leeroy1972

what about oxygen sensor would this cause the excelarator to bogg down..

Response From Tom Greenleaf

1989 and a truck? I don't think most or any O2 sensors would cause rough running alone as they can on newer stuff. It may be bad but IMO for the year more to tell you something isn't quite right to tend to and the ones I've personally dealt with the result of another problem rather than the source.

If misfiring or raw fuel overloads a converter they can and will clog up and the common feel of that was (to me) low even power as like an exhaust restriction which it would become. Would usually work OK cold for a while then lose power but smoothly up to quitting.

You can do a simple test for exhaust restriction if you want to rule that out by just watching actual manifold vacuum at idle and with no load again at 2,000 RPMs and they should be dang near the same. If much lower at the raised idle it strongly suggests exhaust restriction.

Other on this Mopar. It may use a thermostatic "thingy" (nice definition Tom) on one exhaust manifold to shoot warm air under to help atomize fuel while cold then give up as engine warmed up. That was more on older stuff than this but trucks may have hung on to that a bit longer?? I plead IDK as for a while back when trucks were given longer to meet standards than passenger cars for a while and by the 90s had to meet all for sale to the US anyway.

Guessing as it's old and a truck but if it has one of those stuck (should be free in hand - cold check please) and stayed on they could clog the heck out of things with sludge unseen. Doubt you have that AND fuel injection. What else have you found checking? Plain guessing isn't the best approach even that long ago,

Response From leeroy1972

is there any we you can call me at 931 638 9138 i live in tennessee...

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Rather leave things on the web. Two easy ways without tearing the thing apart to get a good clue on timing chains is 1. Take an actual manifold vacuum reading and should be near 18Hg on a "T" connector so item still gets vacuum. Another is to set timing mark at TDC, removed distributor cap and see how many degrees it turns before rotor inside distributor turns. Turn by crank bolt back and forth. IMO 5 degrees is enough of free-play. Short of seeing it with a scope and not sure you can you'd have to be looking at it. Not sure there's an easy inspection item to see it.

I drive older stuff and know what can happen with age and miles even on good American Iron the OE (original equipment) parts used a lot of plastic cam gears. Replacements would be all metal and last quite well.

At the age it could be a lot of diagnosing and perhaps some guessing if not owned since new ( or excellent history) it's one place where to start looking,

shifting problems

Question From bama9238 on shifting problems

2001 Dodge ram 1500
5.9
automatic
121000
46re trans

I replaced the trans from a junkyard, drove and shift great started to miss and was told I mess up the flex plate. I also replaced the timing chain.
installed the trans again now it will only do first gear, reverse and park. Unless you stomp on it then will shift. It gave me a Code P0753 so I replaced
the governor and transducer. Didn't help and now it doesn't pull any codes. I replaced the output sensor, cam shaft sensor even put in a new computer.
Now that I'm broke, playing mechanic any pointers....

Response From GC

Not sure if that trans has a throttle valve cable, if it does, its free to have a look at it and make sure its all hooked up right.

Response From bama9238

Thank you ,,, you hit the nail on the head.Runs great thanks for taking the time to help.....

Used is used and there are risks and pitfalls all along going that route. A crap shoot to beat the price of alternative of rebuilding the one you had,
