Could be lots of things....
1) Anyone on of the multiple sensors.....TPS, IAC, Air temp sensor, coolant sensor.
2) bad gas
3) bad fuel pump or fuel pressure.
4) bad fuel pressure regulator.
5) bad fuel pump relay.

Any of these could cause the need to get someone with a scan tool to take a good look at what the truck is actually doing.

An O2 sensor can casue problems as well.

My 2007 ford f150 starts and dies

make sure there is proper fuel pressure (test it with a gauge) or the computer will not send fuel signal to the pump, and the coils will not get power.

2001 Ford Lincoln Towncar, ran tank empty, put fuel in, car starts, engine races, then dies, sometimes races and backfires, changed fuel filter, verified fuel pump working, unhooked battery waited 10...

Here's a thought: do you think that some debris from the gas tank has plugged the gasline at the fuel tank. I suggest this because you stated that the fuel pump is still working and that you took all of the right steps beforehand and the Town Car still stalls and dies. Or, it is possible that some of the same debris managed to get through all of the filters and into the throttle body assembly and may have fouled up the fuel-injection system.

In the first case, you will have to drain the tank as best you can through the fuel filler, using a siphon, and then drop the tank. After the gas tank is dropped, you will have to access the interior and look closely for debris. In the second case, you will have to take the same steps as in the first case but you will have to add that you will have to clean the gasline all the way to the injectors just to be sure. You may even have to clean the individual injectors.

Remember, one thing, though, and that these specific cases are only two of the many possibilities that exist and I suggested them because they seem reasonable given the circumstances, especially since you ran the tank dry.

Out of the blue . truck looses power and wants to die. not letting it die by hitting gas peddle it runs but starts back firering supper bad. truck dies .starting up it doesnt want to put . made it home .....

if you have replaced cap and rotor plus coil and it seemed to fire up then i would take the next step. For sure put your new plugs and wires on then make sure you have replaced your air filter, and change out your fuel filter, fire up the vehicle if it doesn't start I would suggest changing the fuel pump. If it starts up make sure you put in some BK fuel injector cleaner in your fuel it might be you have dirty injectors. If all fails then get back with me and we will look else where. Good luck hope this info helps you out

I got a 93 Ford probe race car. While racing the car just died like it was out of gas. Filled it up and still nothing. But if you hold the key (while trying to start it) it runs, but can't keep it like...

Look at the bypass resistor and the ignition switch. Both can cause the problem Also look at the pressure regulator for the fuel rail. Take the small wire off the starter solenoid so you can hear the fuel pump without cranking the engine. If the pump runs fast at first then slows down's ok If it runs fast all the time check the pressure regulator.

What do i neede to do

Before you race out and get a new distributor I suggest that you run the fault codes first to determine the fault as it may have nothing to do with the distributor. Lack of spark can be from immobiliser. cam/crank shaft position sensor , blown fuse. faulty coil and wiring problems . I would check to see if the cam shaft is turning to check for a broken timing belt/chain. Do the cheap checks first before you waste money on what is not faulty.

My car bucks when driving it will die repeatly engine will race. shut it off for a little while start again and it will be fine for a while then will start doing it again

Lawn mowers have had that problem before and what it was is rust or a object in the fuel tank blocking the flow of gas you might try changing the fuel filter there could be contaminate in the fuel line one way to test that would be to disconnect the fuel line from the engine and aim it in to a gas can and have some one turn the key to the on possition watch the flow to see if it sputters if it does theres the problem , then you should replace the fuel pump and filter as well as the inline filter.

My car dies when I drive for a short time.

Check O2/mapp sensor. Also if you can elaborate on the behavior of the engine as it stalls, is there smoke, does it race then suddenly die out or does it barely run at a very slow unsteady idol until it floods out?

Answering with as much detail as possible will help get a more definite answer.
Good luck.
