P1351 just means there is a misfire. Was there a note next to the code stating which cylinder(s)? I would start by replacing the spark plugs, there could just be a fouled plug. If that doesn't help, pull the ignition coils and boots and see if there is oil in any of the spark plug tubes/boots. If there is, you need to replace the valve cover gasket.

Trouble codes p1351 and p1343

The code 1351 is a problem with the ignition diagnostic circuit, and code 1343 is not a common code for Ford products in the US.
It may have something to do with the accelerator pedal sensor.
You may need someone with a scanner and a shop manual to troubleshoot the codes.

My engine runs rough and the codes say p1341 and p1351

Here you go - this'll help you translate your engine codes. Looks like your getting a "Multiple Cylinder Misfire With Fuel Cut-off" and "Misfire Cylinder 5 With Fuel Cut-off". Hopefully you just need a good tune up, but this should point you in the right direction. Good Luck.

I have a 1996 chevy full size c1500 pick up with a 6 cyclinder engine, it starts fine, however, the diagnostic computer is reading a 1351 code and a P302, what does that means? tahnk you in advance.

P0302 us a miss in cylinder #2, check plug wires first they are usually the reason for specific misfires.
As for the P1351, that us usually a wiring issue at the connector at the distributor, specifically a damaged wire or bad connector. It may have been responsible for the P0302 if the plug wire at #2 is weak to begin with, so I'd change out the wires and carefully examine the wires at the distributor, especially the pink one-they can have 'blind' breaks in the wiring, so feel the insulation and check for areas where it is easy to stretch the wire, indicating a break in the wire.

I am getting code p1351 on a chevy s10 it will not start could this be the timing chain

No this is not a timing chain
P1351 CHEVROLET - Ignition Coil Control Circuit High Voltage

Conditions for Setting P1351:

The voltage on the ignition control circuit exceeds 4.9 volts, and the engine speed is less than 250 RPM.

Bottom line?

Most likely its a bad Ignition Control Module.
