Question about Cars & Trucks
I would change the fuel filter first, if that doesn't fix the prob. check the throttle position sensor.

my 93 prelude was doing the exact same thing and for me it was my alternator was working properly.
go to a parts store and have them test it.

If it does turn over but won't start, check for fuel and spark, if not spark then check to see if the crank sensor is cover with dirt.....

From what you are describing it appears like an engine misfire.
These trucks are notorious for bad ignition coils.
They don't always set a code either, it depends on several factors.
To check these out in my shop there is a mode in our scan tool called "mode 6". This allows us to look at certain engine data parameters to look at misfire to locate the offending cylinder(s).
Unfortunately without the use of a scan tool you will not be able to see this.
It may be in your best interests to get a shop to look at this for you and verify the bad cylinder.
I have had issues with aftermarket coils and use Ford originals exclusively now. They have also reduced the price of them, good thing too because we go through many.
Might be an opportune time to replace spark plugs as well. worn spark plugs can accelerate coil failure as a worn plug takes more energy to fire.
Thank you for using FixYa !
