Why does my 1985 f 150 run rough and backfires


So many possibilities. I have an 87 F150 myself. Most common things to check are fuel filter, spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor button. replacing all this should solve your problem.

Change your fuel filter. Replace the distributor cap and rotor. If you have the HEI ignition, they are really bad about burning through the igniton rotor.

87 Nissan z24 truck 2-wheel drive


If this is the Z24 engine, you may have a mess of issues. That engine has two coils, and one could of easily gone bad. I've seen this problem a lot on this engine, and could be fixed by figuring out which coil went bad. Also check the plugs and wires. Make sure all of the connections are good and maybe change out the coils.

I think you must have the carburettor plunger not going well as you are getting flat spots under sudden acceleration, I think the best way to go is to get the carburettor overhauled.

Sounds like the alternator isn't running good, have you tested this? Perhaps it isn't sparking cosistently and the loss of power would be explained if it isn't kicking out enough power.
