Question about 1984 Ford F 150
My truck starts fine and drives ok until I come to a stop then it just shuts off. I have also noticed that my oil pressure is a little low, not off the grid low but low. I also noticed when I checked my oil the dip stick has a milky look to it like really creamed coffee, my oil started to look that way and we changed it...now it is doing it again it does not seem to be all the oil really just seems to be the dip stick. My brother said get block stop leak...What could be wrong and why would the truck just shut off? It is not running hot by the way.
What you are saying sounds to me like. A head gasket leaking. May not be too bad yet, but the milky oil look is a sure tell tell sing of it. And probably why it shut off at stops, water in the cylinders

The problem you have is a cracked block. This allows water to get into your oil, and that causes the milky appearance. As you might imagine, this is not a good thing. You can try the block seal, but, there are no guarantees. Good luck. Oh, and by the way, it has nothing to do with the dip stick, just the water and oil failing to mix.

check and see if you have fire at the plug and what color it is
check if you have power going to hot side of coil
can you hear fuel pump run

The loud whine you speak of indicates one of two things a bad serpentine belt or alternator, The first thing would be to check the belt.Look for cracks worn spots or glazing. If the belt looks ok then take the belt off and start the engine for a minute or so and listen for noise.

sounds almost like the newer vehicles equiped with cam sensors instead of the distributer system i had a similar problem with an 87 ford bronco 2 it would stall out right around 2800 rpm i replaced the control module usually mounted on the distributer at least mine was and it fixed it right up but as for ur truck im not sure they are only like 30 bucks at autozone or something worth a try right??

Light should have stored code. Go to local autoparts chain & get free scan for codes and go from there. Saves all that guess work & money a lot of times. Write down code(s) and let us know.
