Yurn the engine over by hand until the 0 timing mark on the crank lines up with the pointer. Trace you #1 plug wire back to the cap, lift the cap and see where the rotor is pointing. If it's not at #1, or very close to it, you are right. #1 is the front plug on the driver's side. If it is lined up then you have another problem, likely related to overheating.

SOURCE: need firing order on a 1996 dodge ram v8

The order should be stamped on your intake manifold right under the air cleaner.
My '97 1500, 5.2, 318 firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Hope this helps

SOURCE: The top radiator hose blew apart. after replacing and filling radiator back up engine runs ruff and guage is hot. radiator water is cold. What is wrong?

First place I'd look is at the thermostat. However, if the hose did not rupture in a normal manner and blew apart, I'd also suspect that you may have a blown head gasket. In that case, compression is entering the cooling system which is not designed to handle such high pressures, therefore causing the hose to explode). This will also result in rough running you observed.

Engine rattles and loses power when throttling


I had a 1973 Dodge Dart Sport with a 318 c.i. engine (5.2 liter) that started doing the same thing around 173,000 miles. I replaced the main and rod bearings (.001" undersized) and the oil pump and it ran like new until I sold it about 15,000 miles later. Check the crank surfaces carefully for damage when you take the bearing caps off. If they show any rough surfaces you will probably need to have the crank machined.

try by changing the fuel filter. if the other stuff works ok then the engine is being starved for fuel during high speed use.... Could be debris in the fuel system.

Car tach jumps and cover of air filter blew off.


It sounds like the engine "backfired" and blew the cover off. This and having the tach "jumping" means that the engine timing is erratic. This can be caused by the crankshaft position sensor or the ignition module. It could also be cross firing at the coil pack,if so equipped. Make sure all of the wiring to these components is good.

Car will not start Have fuel to rail


It may not be a fuel problem Try a small shot of starting ether in the air intake. If it starts quick and shuts off it's a fuel problem but if it doesn't start start it's electrical.
