take your dist cap off then your rotor look in your dist you will see a computer board. that will keep it from firing and it is pretty easy to change. there is a ground wire around your thermostat or at front of motor if it dont have a good connection it will not fire. I also had a ford van that quit firing on me and it was the pcm computer.

Before you do to much i would check your ground wires.that will be the easiest and cheapest.
