Question about 1991 Ford F150
My truck has had an intermittent problem for a while. To start I changed out a bad battery a few months ago. A couple of months later I was hauling a load on a hot day, and it started spitting and sputtering. It turned out to be the fuel pump (mechanic did pressure test). These things might not be related, but..... Two weeks later it sputtered and died on the way out my driveway. It would not start, so I had it hauled to the shop. My mechanic changed the distributor, and said the next thing was computer. A few days later it was acting up, and I took it to him to find out where the computer was. I asked him if it might be the ignition module, and he took it for testing. They said it is fine. It went dead again, so salvage computer. Now it has died again, and when I try to start it it seems like the timing is off. I have had trouble that felt like timing throughout the whole thing but it is intermittent. Change the module, or something else?
I would replace the ecm u said it for sure has new distributor so that would be next could be coil if duel tanks could be tank selector ford had recall on that year truck also u have a box on top of string collum under dash that will go bad dont rem what its called ing. switch i think? if duel tanks start with that ford will run your vin for free see if recall was ever done

Check the crank sensor and the drank balancer pulley for wear in the keyway...Not a guaranteed fix, but somewhere else to look.
