Engine performance issues due to spark plug wire induction on Dodge Ram Wagon 2500

Some vehicles may exhibit one or more of the following: Spark knock complaints when the vehicle is under load, various single cylinder misfire, and surge in 4th gear (around 45 mph). Our technicians tell us that rerouting the coil and spark plug wires to minimize induction effects will commonly correct this condition. If wires must cross during the reroute procedure, they must cross at a 90 degree angle.

Chrysler TSB 18-48-98 was issued to correct the problem. If you know how to get the "dog-house" off, then rerouting the ignition wires is the simple answer. The TSB 18-48-98 documentation can be found here: http://dodgeram.info/tsb/1998/18-48-98.htm
