1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: problem with my truck
i have a 1997 dodge ram 1500 hundred its always been a great truck but every once in a while it would just go dead and i would have to restart it the other day i drove it home and was gonna drive it to work the next morning and it wouldnt start i took the gas take off and checked fuel pump its working i replaced the coil i ts still not firing i even held the coil with my hand while trying to crank it didnt even shock me and info would be helpful....thanks Bobby - bobbyjordan
you need 3 things to run. fuel pressure, spark and compression. you need to check the fuel pressure. it has to be around 40 lbs. holding the coil for a shock is not a smart way of checking for spark. if you remove the spark plug wire from the distributor, that is the coil wire, crank the motor and see if there is spark to something metal, not your body, it hurts. check these and get back to me for more info.
