SOURCE: 1988 F150 wont start

Check the positive side of the battery for a burnt fusible link. It looks like a wire but when it's over loaded if burns in half. Look at the pos. battery side of the starter solonoid you'll see a few of them there. Check your ignition module as well. This controls the coil and distributor and is mounted to the driver side inner fender.

With truck off and key on, you should be able to hear the solenoid under the truck switch from one to the other tank, if you don't hear it, check for voltage at switch, if you have voltage there, have some one work the switch while your under the truck to check voltage there at the gas tank solenoid, also tap on it, while working the switch, could be stuck, if you have voltage, but don't switch, solenoid will have to be replace.

SOURCE: 1988 F150. 5.0 Have fire and Gas but will not

I would check the compression first. Without compression it won't fire. I should be at around 160psi per cylinder. If any are below or varies 10psi per cylinder, then the engine needs to be rebuilt.

Fuel pressure at idle is normally 30-35psi. Start by taking the gas cap off, and putting it back on. That will De-pressurize the fuel system. Also, make sure you have gas in the car. I have seen gauges on these cars read wrong. I hope this helps.

no combustion or no compression? timing chain broke? you did not supply enough info about what you tested.or how. remove a spark plug wire if you dont like shcks take an old spark plug two alligator clips and a piece of wire attatch to the hex metal body of this old plug and connect the wire you just removed run the starter while watching for strong!!! spark.you can have a weak spark and no start=bad coil.i think but maybe wrong that this vehicle still uses aignition module located somewhere on the fender.find a parts locator maybe at the library. this module was aproblem for decades.have fun.

Miss firing


could be a wire crossed, or it's out of time. since you used motorcraft plugs, did you set them properly to the correct gap? replacing plugs without gapping them can cause the sluggishness, out of time can cause the mis-fires and rough running.
