Where can can I find the fuel filter on a 98 ram 1500. I"ve been having problems with misfires and thats one of the things I"m trying to change to fix the problem, but I can"t find it.

It is in the tank. You can still service it, but not very easily. It is unlikly that is you issue. Have you replaced your cap and rotor, plugs? Checked plug wires?
I did plugs and wires not long ago, and just checked to make sure the wires were all still connected. They were. I guess i"ll do the cap and rotor next.I have a 98 1500 with a 318.Any other suggestions? I got the following codes out of my truck, P0307 (misfire cylinder 7), P0304 (misfire cylinder 4), and P0300 (multiple cylinder misfire). The engine has been running really rough lately, when cruising at about 40 mph it feels almost like im driving on a bumpy road cause the engine isnt running right.I was thinking maybe i have bad injectors, and i"ve also heard that the magnum engines have a problem with cracked heads which may be the problem, but thats expensive so i hope it isnt.Any advice is appreciated.
I know you’ve probably already looked, but did you check ‘really closely’ for a cracked distributor cap? I just went through a similar ordeal with mine and that’s what it was. The tech sprayed a light mist on the cap, then revved it a few times. Wow.. BIG BOLTS OF LIGHTNING arching off the cap and up to the metal overhang. Took the cap off and (after fine observation) noticed a really small miro fracture on top of it. Replaced it and no more misfires. Good luck,D.

Hey CardFB45.I have a "98 1500 with the 318 also and at 40-45 mph the same thing happens to me.I will try the distributor cap 1st.I"ll post the result.Post your progress as well.Thanks.
My old 94 had a fuel pump go bad. It only missed when the tank was at 1/4 full. the summer before it started doing that, I"d have to rev the crap out of it after filling the tank with gas just to keep it alive. Good luck

havent got a chance to check anything new on my truck cause im in college and can only use my truck on the weekends. I dont think my problem is the fuel pump because the misfires are only in two cylinders. I hope its the distributer cap or maybe a couple bad injectors. However ive heard bad things about cracked heads on our magnum engines. Ill post anything i find out this weekend. And more suggestions are always welcome
I did replace the dist.cap and rotor yesterday.Also checked all the spark plug wires.It didn"t help.Still shakes lots at 40-50 mph.I think next I will pull all the plugs to check their condition.(so far pulled only one).O-2 sensers might be next.I was told it might be the trany.It only shakes when it"s in the overdrive gear at 40-50 mph.When the gas is applied and down shifts to the passing gear,it stops.I"m getting crappy gas mileage as well.

Ouch… That sounds like the same problem I have. So far, I’ve nailed it down to a lockup torque converter that refuses to properly disengage when speeds drop to under 40 MPH or so (yours may be a little different). This ONLY happens when O/D is engaged, however, Symptom:If I allow the truck to coast down to under 40 MPH, then lean into the throttle, the whole thing starts to stutter/ jolt back and forth. It feels like trying to drive a standard in 5th gear at 30 MPH. Now… If I let off... Then hit the throttle to about ½, I can get it to downshift/ disengage the lockup. My temp solution:I manually disengage O/D before dropping to under 40 MPH. Haven’t experienced any stuttering in months. Still not absolutely sure whether it’s a lockup problem, or an O/D misbehaving. Everything else in terms of shifting, etc is mint. I don’t know if these are even close to your symptoms, but hopefully it’ll help in the process of elimination. D.
