Question about 1989 Ford F 150
Try cleaning your injectors, running seafoam through the system, and cleaning the carb. Check all of your vacume hoses and connections as well.

2 solutions: first, ignition control module is getting hot and shutting car down. 2nd; you didn't mention your dash(service soon) lights were on.<p>
You said the fuel filter was pretty clogged up. It's sounds like a bad case of EGS(ethanol gas syndrome). The ethanol;being a corn deritive;acts like corn liquor(which is what is is), and turns the fuel to goop, and adds large amounts of water through out all the systems.<p>
It clogs up the fuel lines,the injectors, and ruins fuel pumps. It also puts heavy carbon on egr valves, int. and exh. valves, and can ruin oxy sensors, and catalytic converters.<p>
Let's try the cheapest way first:Buy a can of SEAFOAM and Berkline 2+2 at your parts store. Take out the oxy sensor(s) and clean the ends using the 2+2 and re-install.
Then change out the fuel filter again. Pour the SF into a tank of PREMIUM(only) gas. Change the pcv valve. Then start vehicle and let idle for 3-5 min(even if you have to rev it up to do it to get the SF flowing through the system), and then drive it 10 hard miles.<p>
Replace that fuel filter, and then let it idle some more. Your car sounds like it is really messed up bad. Unless you take it to a garage that has a fuel system cleaner machine, this is the best way to do it.<p>
After this, add SF every 3-5000 miles to your tank. It will prevent this from happening again. Also; to be on the safe side. Have a PSI check on your fuel pump. This goop could have burnt it up. I hope this helps.

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Ford
I have a 1998 Mazda B2500 (same truck/engine/trans). A few years back, I was getting a rough idle a few minutes after startup, and my tachometer would fluctuate wildly. This progressed to the point where I was stalling out randomly while driving. With the help of my local mechanic, I ended up diagnosing it as a mass airflow sensor error. My best guess is that oil or water had gotten into the intake. Whatever the cause, after replacing the sensor (saw them for $60 on eBay, right after I paid $300), it's been running smoothly since.
P.S. -- I don't think this is a mileage/wear and tear issue so much as it is bad luck. I only had 13k miles on the truck at the time.

SOURCE: ck engine light on - no code
Check engine light with no codes usually means a PCM reset is happening. EBP shorting, ICP shorting, aftermarket "performance chip". PIDS need to be monitored to eliminate sensors. IDMs (Injector Driver Modules) can also cause this. IDM's are separate from the PCM/ECM (engine computer).
