I replaced the brush pack in the alternator, had autozone test and charge the batery, and replaced the ignition coil. The truck still wont start. To test for fire, i pulled one plug wire, placed a screwdriver into the wire end, and held the shaft against the block while turning over the ignition. no spark, nothing.

Check engine light on ? Code's ? What engine ? 2.3 l 4cylinder or 3.ol v-6 This vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , not coil packs ! a coil per cylinder . If new coils an still has no spark , has no B+ voltage to the coil or the PCM isn't controlling them . Without testing i'd only be guessing as to the problem .If the repair shop you had it to can only say it had to be the coils , I'd find another shop to take it to !

Looks like you are having a battery problem, your battery is weak and not able to hold the cars charge. When u let the car sit the battery will lightly charge itself but once you turn it on and drive it begins to drive, the cars accesories will drain out the battery and the alternator will do its job by charging but the battery is just too weak or it could be the alternator not putting out enough amperage to charge the battery sufficiently, the alternator could be seizing on you when u are driving, stopping and rotating off and on, if thats the case then your car will shut off. I would do a load test on your battery then if that checks out ok then go for the alternator. The load testing tool can be purchased at any AutoZone or Lappens, Pep Boys etc..
