Check for loose or damaged ignition wires, check all connections at the distributor and coil, check for arching wires when running, inspect under the distributor cap


If you all ready checked for connections then do the following. You will need to check fuel pressure at the rail and also run a code test. You can check for codes yourself by counting the check engine light flashes...Look up EEC Self check test...There should be a You- Tube video. If you have more questions I would recommend posting on this forum: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum28/
