Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Changed spark plug and the wire.Could it be the coil or the distributor cap? I didn`t clear the computor after changing the plug and wire.
Are you sure you are getting a spark to this spark plug ?
Run the engine and hold the HT lead with insulated pliers, near to the block, and you should see a spark jump.
If not, check the distributor cap, for cracks, or tracking marks, if found , renew cap.
Might be worthwhile just checking your compression reading on this cylinder too, if it is down, it will give you this problem.
Good Luck !
Let me know how you get on.
A FixYa rating would be nice...Thank´s ....John.
