Question about Cars & Trucks
You could have an air leak between the tank and engine. If you have had a fuel filter replaced recently I would start there. As the pump sucks fuel from the front you can have an air leak and not fuel leak because suction creates a vacumme and fuel leak requires preasure

I am wondering do you hear the fuel pump when you just turn the key into the on run position not crank just in run and listen and see if you hear the fuel pump run for a second, If you don't hear it you will want to check for power at the fuel tank, and have some one cycle the key while your under the truck with a test light. Hopefully you have power and you hear the fuel pump run. Now if you do hear the fuel pump running then the next thing you will want to check is for spark, It could be the ignition module or pickup coil. check out those thing and I am sure you will be able to figure out whats going on. If you don't get back to me and we can try a few other methods. I sure hope that helps you out johnholley. and thanks for using Fix Ya Bear001

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

Start with a set of plug wires, since it seems to happen in the wet weather, and pick up a can of wd40 or wiredry to keep in the truck.Hope this helps.
