1987 f 150 6 cyl starts and runs till hot then wont till cooled off


Probably a bad ignition coil or a bad TFI module (the ignition control module). Much testing could be done to find the faulty part, but I believe if you take the TFI module to a parts store, it could be tested.

Vehicle cranks but will not start no fire


Common Fox Mustang issue related to this condition would be a faulty coil,ignition connection under steering wheel melted,faulty or the TFI Module on the Dizzy. I would start with the TFI 9 times out of 10 this is the culprit. Be sure to replce it with a motorcraft as Ive had bad experinces with aftermarket TFI modules right out of the box. I've attached a photo of the TFI module below. Good Luck Ryan MN

87 f150 driving just quit running now wont start


Do you have spark?? If not replace the Ignition control module (Called the TFI) and remove the distributor and replace the pickup coil inside. Use Motorcraft replacement parts, the aftermarket cheap ones fail really quick, 25 years of experience taught me that.

How do I repalce ignition module on 1991 F150 inline 6 cylinder 2 wheel drive


  1. Remove the distributor cap from the distributor, and set it aside (spark plug wires still connected).
  2. Disconnect the harness connector.
  3. Remove the distributor.
  4. Remove the TFI module retaining screws.
  5. To disengage the TFI module's terminals from the distributor base connector, pull the right side of the module down the distributor mounting flange and then back up. Carefully pull the module toward the flange and away from the distributor.
  6. Coat the TFI module baseplate with a thin layer of silicone grease (FD7AZ-19A331-A or its equivalent).
  7. Place the TFI module on the distributor base mounting flange. Position the module assembly toward the distributor bowl and carefully engage the distributor connector pins. Install and torque the two TFI module retaining screws to 9-16 inch lbs.
  8. Install the distributor assembly.
  9. Install the distributor cap and check the engine timing.

Sorry I don't do text, because I don't want spam either... The most likely cause of your problem is a bad TFI (ignition) module. All of the engines used in Ford trucks in 1991 used the TFI modules. Some were distributor-mounted modules and some were fender-mounted modules. I cannot tell you where yours is actually located, because you did not bother to mention engine size. (Nice-to-know information - it helps a little if we know what we are working on) Anyway, That is the most likely cause of a no-spark condition. In fact, It has been so common with the Ford engines that Ford ended up settling in a class-action law suit due to the TFI modules repeatedly leaving people stranded. I personally had a Ford Ranger - replaced the TFI module about 6 times in the 7 years that I owned it...used to keep a spare in the glove box.

Truck cuts off while driving down the road.


Replace the TFI module. Ford back in 1986 thur 1993 had problems like the one you wrote about. TFI module gets hot and shuts car or truck off then when it cools sometmies starts and sometimes not.

Rough idle will stall if not given gas


FORD USED A THICK FILM IGNITION ( MODULE ) " TFI " . IT SOMETIMES JUST GOES BAD AT ONCE AND THE CAR WONT START AT ALL. HOWEVER FOR THE STRANG TIMES IT WILL START AND ONCE THE HEAT OF THE ENGINE GETS TO THE POINT OF OVERHEATING THE "TFI" IT WILL MAKE THE IDLE RUFF/BAD THEN THE ENGINE STALLA UNTILL THE "TFI" COOLS DOWN THEN IT WILL START AGAIN. THE PART IS ABOUT 80 DOLLARS AND YOU WILL NEED A DEEPWALL 5.5mm SOCKET TO CHANGE IT. IT IS ON THE SIDE OF THE DISTRIBUTOR, YOU WILL NEED TO MARK THE DISTRIBUTOR ITSELF WITH A REFERENCE TO THE MOTOR THEN UNTIGHTEN THE 13mm BOLT THAT KEEPS THE DISTRIBUTOR TIGHT. TURN THE DISTRIBUTOR SO YOU CAN ACCESS THE BOLTS TO THE "TFI" ONCE YOU SWAP THE "TFI" ALIGN THE REFERENCE MARKS YOU MADE AND TIGHTEN THE DISTRIBUTOR BOLT.

ANOTHER QUICK TIP IS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE MAINTAINING AT LEAST A MINIMUM OF 30PSI FUEL PRESSURE.
