1990 FORD F 150,SPARK ON THE COIL BUT NO FROM THE DISTRIBUTOR

I have a 1990 ford f150,4.9L,6 cyl.,I was driven it and stopped for fuel at gas station,I tried to star it out with no exit since then I can't get spark from the distributor.According to the manual I checked every single step on all the voltages and every thing is OK.I replaced ignition switch,pickup coil,ignition module,distributor cap,rotor,EEC relay,ignition coil,spark plugs,spark plugs wires,I checked all ignition system harness and all are OK. I checked the rotor for spinnig and it's fine.The only thing I haven't replace is the PCM 'cause is too expensive and I don't know is a bad PCM causes no spark.I HAVE SPARK ON THE IGNITION COIL BUT WHY I DON'T HAVE SPARK ON THE WIRES.I don't where I ave to keep looking,please help me!!!!!!!!!.

    The spark is cominig out from the top of the coil,but when I check the spark on the spark plugs cables I don't get spark,remember the all the spark cables are new,if I get spark on the coil why I have to replace it?

I had the same problem. there is a group of wires that go by the distributer and branch off to the distributer and go towards the front. when i would jiggle it the van would die. it ended up being a pinched wire.

check the connection of all of the spark plug wires to the plugs, you may have put a wrong one on, when cleaning the gas tank as well it can dislodge a lot of dirt, cleaning injectors and a new fuel filter could solve the issue as well

If all the coils are giving spark now,then you moat likely have gas fouled plugs now,so change them out with new ones,all 8 of them.If you do not have spark on all plug wires,pull the timing belt cover,and align the cam shaft and the cam,to see if the belt has jumped.If It hasn`t,replace the crankshaft sensor.

Firing orde ford 6 cyl f-150 truck distributer to spark plugs


you didn't say if you have the straight 6 or v 6.But i'll give the order for both.
The 4.9L straight 6 is 1-5-3-6-2-4----------- distributor rotor turning clockwise, and #1 plug is the first plug.
On the 3.0 and 4.2 V6 engines is 1-4-2-5-3-6-------#1 plug is the first plug on driver side---- facing engine.
