1997 F250 - 8 cyl, 4 WD, 351 Winsor, Dual Gas Tanks - stalls or won't start

Asked by Apr 15, 2017 at 11:55 AM about the 1997 Ford F-250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 F250 - 8 cyl, 4 WD, 351 Winsor with dual GAS tanks that continues to stall or not start at all.  This seems to happen quite often.  When it doesn't start or stalls, it has to sit for many hours and seems like it has to be cool outside for it to run again.  It acts like it is out of gas even though it isn't.  This is a revision to my question from yesterday.  If anyone has any suggestion, I would most definitely appreciate it.  Thanks

This sounds like the ignition control module is bad. Engine heat will affect them causing a no spark condition. You can take that out and might as well the coil too, and have them checked at an auto parts store.

I am a 52 yr. old woman and am not sure how to remove both the ignition control module or coil. I would rather do this myself since I am low on funds. Is there a how-to site I can go to in order to do it myself. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have and thanks a bunch for answering my question so quick.

This video is on the ignition control module removal and replacement. This guy calls this a TFI module. https://youtu.be/dAsEiEzKsHE
