Won't start

Asked by Feb 10, 2017 at 09:43 PM about the Ford F-250 Super Duty

Question type: General

I have a 1997 ford f250 HD with a 5.8. I noticed the
alternator was going bad so I replaced it and now
the truck won't start. Cranks over but not starting. I
can smell fuel and I can hear the fuel pump. Any
ideas why it won't start?

Check to see if you are getting spark at the plugs.
