1989 starting problem.

Asked by Apr 17, 2015 at 08:39 PM about the 1989 Ford E-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1989 4.9L inline 6 ford econoline that was running great for a while but it started
to spit and sputter and would only run solid with high RPMs. I drove it home and then it
wouldn't start anymore. I replaced the cap rotor plugs and wires and am using the ford
4.9l inline 6 diagram. It cranks but doesn't start it's receiving fuel because the old plugs
were wet when I pulled them and I let the cylinder dry out can someone help me?
