I had one do the same thing same year and everything ended up being the engine computer but first test the ignition module you can take it off and have it tested at most of your local parts stores it is located on the distributor and you will need a special tool to remove it which can also be purchased through your local parts store for a few bucks just tell them you need a ford ignition module and they should know right what you need good luck hope this helps
is the battery sulfated?, no matter how old, has it been run dead,is it the right size to run all the vehicle needs.,run a load test on it,also check for "parasitic drain" on the battery system,i.e. and light, radios left on,overnight or unknown drain,etc.
1-4-2-5-3-6 Now you need to know which cylinder is which. If you stand at the front of the truck looking at the engine, the number 1 cylinder is on the left closest to you. The left bank has cylinders 1-3-5 and the right bank has 2-4-6. So number 1 is at the left front and number 6 is at the right rear.
You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.
I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.
Well his first mistake was buying a Duramax Isuzu Diesel... But with that said, Diesel has a tendency to grow bacteria in the gas tank. Flush the gas tank and change the fluids in the engine and you should be fine. You may notice that some of the gaskets on the engine may leak now that they have dried up. they will either reseal themselfs in time or with thightening or you will have to replace the gasket. I don't think that will be the case after only a few years though.
