Ok it took me a while but i have a 3.4 T100 and the starting issue drove me nuts for a while but finally i found the wires going from harness down to crank sensor when moved while cranking started truck, so for those days it ran and others it didnt run, its just a bad kinked wire that eventually gave poor contact. Replace near alternator all the way to sensor.

Delmond Good job of trouble shooting. Yeah the crank sensor can be the solution to many starting /running problems (It was on mine a while back too)
