SOURCE: 99 F250 V10 Sputtering

It takes just one of the coil on Plug units to cause sputtering and severe shaking. Fortunately the prices have dropped slightly for the coil units. The bad news is it is still close to 100 bucks from the Ford dealers. I have had to replace 3 of these on my 1999 F250 superduty V-10 since I bought it new. I believe there may be some compatible aftermarket units out there for high performance V-8 engines, but can not confirm compatibility.

SOURCE: ABS light, and Parking brake light turn on and off intermittently

Yes, replacing your battery and Checking the Alternator output would be a great thing to do for the s10.
If you are running a aftermarket system then check the wiring of the stereo if you have a subwoofer, use an Amplifier and if you dont have an Amp and have just hooked them up to speakers directly with a inverter then connect all the wires. If you know what im talking about then you will get the idea but if this doesnt comply to you then do not worry about it. Just Get the battery Replaced and the alternator checked out. Then let me know what the symtoms are.

The fuel filter needs to replaced first. If the problem persists then next thing is the fuel pump for a replacement.

Sounds like a fuel problem. Check the fuel filter and the fuel pump pressure.

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.

Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

The power output stages in many circuits are comprised of a module containing both or more channels and this may have failed. The low level signal for headphones is normally picked off before it reaches the input of the final module.

Engine cuts off

this is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.

Driving up an upgrade in Alaska, The vehicle just cut out and has fuel. Will not restart. Fuel filter changed, Sprayed vehicle starter with no luck

Have someone put their ear to the gas tank and listen.And have someone else turn the key to the on position.You should here a buzzng for noise for 5 seconds that verifies the fuel pump is on.You can also spray starter fluid into the throttle body and try to start the truck.If it starts for a second or so then dies that means the engine is not getting fuel from the pump.Replace the pump.If it still doesnt start after that then the ignition needs to be checked for spark.9 times out of 10 when that happens it's the fuel pump or the ignition coil.Labor time on a fuel pump is 3 hours ( I just did one on same vehicle yesterday) And labor time on a coil is an hour or less.
