Possible fuel or ignition problem

75

Asked by Dec 20, 2012 at 12:16 AM about the 1978 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok I was driving to work tonight and I was about 5 minutes away from work and the truck started cuttin out really bad I feathered the gas and tried to keep her alive but she shut down. Luckily it fired right back up and made it the rest of the way to work. I just replaced the ICM thinkin that was the culprit but I was mistaken any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try changing the fuel filter if it felt like the engine was still trying to fire. Check out the ignition if everything quit all at once.
