    will the starter kick in and turn the motor over but just not start if the solinoid is bad. It just sounds like it is out of gas but it has a full tank of gas

Replace the coil?

    i think your coil is weak and not pushing enough fire to the plugs which would explain the color of the fire as you described it. orange instead of blue would indicate a weak coil

Sounds like you need to get the Starter Solinoid Replaced. Just for Kicks make sure that you check EVERY Fuse and Relay in Both the Fuse Panel inside the Cab and the One Under the Hood.

    The Solinoid is not Gone yet. It is still giving Enough Power for Cranking Just not Enough to Spin your Fly Wheel. I would Start there and it Should work. Let me Know though!

How old is the truck? On electronic ignitions these days, water seldom gets in dist. but there is a spray you can get to dry up water, just take dist. cap off and spray then wait a few minutes before replacing cap.

Engine turns over but won't start / 1995 F-150


Sounds alot like the ignition sensor. In my old Chevys it was under the dist cap, mounted on the dist itself. Mine was flat, slightly curved rectangle shape, with two flat prongs coming out both sides. If it would get an internal break in it, you cant see it. I would have the same problem as you, part was only about $12. And comes out with unscrewing two screws.
Might want to give it a shot.
