No we live in california, we used to live in utah and that is were we baught the truck but we have been here for a while, one day it started making some noise everytime we would start it, thats when they came to the conclusion that it was the transmission

Pull the distributor cap off. Underneath it is the pick up for the distributor. Easy to change. Replace it and the distributor cap & button. The other thing it could be is the coil that is bolted to the right front of the engine.

the fly wheel sensor wire is trapped between bell housing and block shorting out square wave pickup, it is located at the right rear of engine or passenger side fix this and it will start
