Truck started fine this morning, now it doesn't start, just cranks and won't catch.   For quite a while there has been lots of carbon blowing out the exhaust when it starts.

    Start with basics. Do you have spark? Fuel? is this a gas or diesel?

Truck will not cold start.


sounds like the alternator might not be charging the battery. i would see if the alternator was putting out 12-14 volts. you can do this by gettin the truck started and use a multimeter and check the terminals for 12-14 volts if it is under that then the alternator is the problem. also test this by puttin the battery under a load. i.e turn on lights, air and so on

1984 Ford F-150 Starter problem


You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.

I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.
