I just completed a tune up on my truck, including oil, oil filter, air filter, rotor, distributor cap, wires and plugs also added some fuel system cleaner. After I was done, the truck started right up but immediately began to back fire and pop tremendously. Also the truck
had very little power or pick up and was very bouncy? I think maybe I replaced the wires in the wrong configuration or the wires might be cross firing or it could be the Bosch +4 plugs. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? And does anyone have the firing order and wiring diagram for the 2002 5.9 Ram 1500? I need help. Thank you. Vincent

Thank you very much for getting back to me. The
wires were indeed put back in out of order and
when I re-wired them correctly, all of the problems
ceased to exist. The truck is running better than
ever now. Thanks again.
