Change out the Duraspark module, they are very cheap and that is the usual suspect.

My nissan pathfinder 2005 4.0 v6 has cut out while driving. i have replaced the camsensor but still cranks without starting. can it be my timing chain?

No its not likely to be the chain. It would either not crank or sound horrible when it does. Check the basics first.
Are there any warning lights on the dash board. Make sure the engine is getting fuel, air and a spark.
Does it just wind evenly as it cranks or does it cough and splutter as if its trying to start? Just winding could mean it's being starved of fuel and "coughing" could mean there is limited spark to the engine.
After this it would be worth getting it checked with a diagnostic machine as it could be a faulty sensor somewhere on the engine.

My ed falcon is backfiring and gagilling on start up with accerator flat have had dizzy out and am having timing issues now. is tdc rocking on one or another cyl?

Check the ignition coil, all you need to do is pull out a spark plug and place it on the engine and turn the key if there is no spark then it is the coil. A very common problem with the Falcon

I have a 1987 ford courier ute. Having trouble starting it on cold mornings. Had a full service done on it and everythings fine. It will turn over, run for a minute then cut out, then try and start it...

Im not familiar with this model you mean its a van anyway it sounds like an ignition problem bad wires or out of gap spark plugs and what did the full service consist of be specific please I'm not there to easily ask you questions the cooler damp air will cause the spark to leak out easily to ground on bad wires this is definitely an ignition problem

Ed ford falcon just done headgasket wont start only very small spark at plugs

Crank sensor to module to coil pack to plugs. There may be a failing component. I would check Crank Sensor first. If you are getting spark to all cylinders, then rule out coil packs, if only spark to one or two cylinders, then replace faulty pack.
