As I looked at my Chevy, It really doesn't look that hard. Also chances are that it is a 32 tooth ring if it came out of a 2002 Ram. Even if it is a 16 tooth tone ring, they change them out for installation into a newer vehicle. Buyers were able to upgrade this base model to the 4. First do you know for sure if that motor cam out of another 2002 Dodge Ram? He called up Chrysler and proposed a trade: a new, red 1932 Royal Eight, for a hood ornament to match anything from Rolls-Royce. The letters in the vin are both N,but what I'm reading is pretty much that the 3 prong pcm is 16 and the 4 prong is 32,and they actually put someof both in the 02 trucks,but cannot get a definite on that. In 2003, Dodge continued production of the third generation of the Ram 1500, a successful line of half-ton trucks that the company had first manufactured in 1994.
We bought a 1997 Ford Tauris with low miles on it 53,270. A simple test light would suffice. In 2003, buyers were able to purchase the Ram 1500 with an extended or Quad cab four-door and a 6. Standard features on any body style with the 4. And you know this 2002 motor was running just fine. The 2003 models continued the redesigned model introduced the previous year. And you drove the 2003 so all of that system was working? This motor will run, just have to figure out the spark thing.
And would you have access to that chassis to read the vin number? You got me into this so I will do everything I can to help. Or I would investigate a bit further on doing something with the sensors, replacement maybe. You know that it ran that motor. But I did just show up the next day to take the car for a test drive anyway. Rowefast answered 3 years ago Well look at it this way, time spent pulling an oil pan and finding out you have to pull the motor anyway, and more money spent on rebuilding a motor verses time spent putting in the other pcm. The whole process was quick and easy and the whole experience was good.
I would think this thing should fire up. This V-8 Magnum, based on the 1998 Chrysler PowerTech platform, consisted of an iron block and aluminum alloy heads. I have one more source I can check, may take a day,. If it would be a 16 tooth, the motor would have to come out and the crankshaft removed to replace it with a 32 tooth tone ring. I even called our local dealer to try and verify, but they couldn't even tell me how many teeth are on the part if I were to order it.
If it is different I'll probably just rebuild the one I took out since I would have to go all the way thru the other one to get to the ring anyway. Grant answered 3 years ago Ya I know about the sensors but the tone rings are mounted on the crankshaft and the camshaft and tell the sensors the info to send the computer. Rowefast answered 3 years ago Changing your intake so you have your original set-up would work, But before doing so, is there any way to just change the throttle body, or what ever is on there to the one that was on? Another thing would be to check to see if there is power around the different sensors, especially at the coil. Until 2002, Dodge hadn't installed a 4. Check for spark from the coil wire, or threw a plug wire.
No one ever called me back. Guess I'm just gonna have to drop the pan and count. All three visits, everyone was friendly and nice. Fairbanks was broke, his Willys-Knight was always breaking down, and he needed a new car. The Dodge Ram 1500 automatic transmission requires Mopar+4 automatic transmission fluid or equivalent and Mopar manual transmission fluid or equivalent for manual transmissions. They went from 16 tooth to 32 tooth sometime in 2002 from my understanding,but I can't find a clear way to tell what I have yet.
Like you said,even the dealers don't know. With the engine running and the truck in park, check its transmission fluid dipstick and add a half quart at a time until the fluid level appears between the hash marks on the dipstick. I was hoping there was an easier way but guess not. Dodge offered a number of options packages. I am hoping they are the same and you are correct about it but I'm stumped right now. Safety features included front driver and passenger airbags, with side-curtain airbags as an upgrade.
I think you need to just check over everything, especially the ground wires, see if there is anything your missing between the two to make it run, sleep on it and decide what to do next. The car was sold as is and as of now, it seems like we got a really good deal. Towing and hauling capacities depended on the bed length and drive configuration. Rowefast answered 3 years ago I have ben researching this all day. The only other way to tell for sure would be to drop the oil pan as it is bolted onto the crankshaft toward the rear, and count the number of teeth. It produced 240 horsepower at 4,800 rpm and 300 foot-pounds of torque at 3,200 rpm. It will not work without pulling crank and changing ring.
If so my motors are both 16 if that isnt a valid way to check idk what to do, im getting fire and fuel it spits and spudders and backfires like it wants to run but doesent start? I only came a-pond one source saying that the 2002 4. This does not tell computer to send the fire, but monitors the position of the crankshaft, any deviation it picks up will affect the firing of the engine, Not sure if those can be tested, more than likely tho. I really appreciate your time. Here is what I came up with. Some time later, he got an urgent phone call from Dodge; they couldn't put a mermaid on their burly trucks. Then my husband went back later that day to test drive it as well.
And don't worry about my time, I just like to do this and help. Oh the sensors are visible on the front of the motor, Crankshaft sensor should be on the side of the timing cover down by the timing marks. The company installed the 4. . Let me know Dylan answered about a year ago I am currently having this issue i bought a 02 durango to pu motor in my 03 ram the durango has 4 plugs my ram has 3 but they are both i believe to be 16, is it true to count holes on tone ring mounted behind cam shaft gear? Limited-slip rear axles will need 4 ounces of Mopar limited-slip additive or equivalent added.
