If you are getting fuel and spark at the cylinder then check the timing. It's not uncommon for worn timing chains to jump at shut off or start up. To check turn the engine over until the timingmarks on the crankshaft line up at 0. Trace the wire back from #1 piston, which is the front one on the passenger's side. On the cap it should be just to the right of the tab that locks the cap in the proper position on the distributor. Lift the cap and check the position of the rotor button. It should be directly under the tower for the wire or it should be 180 degrees off. If so turn the engine 1 turn until the timing marks line up at 0 again and look under the cap. If it's not lined up with the #1 wire, turn the distributor until it does. Tighten the distributor down and try the truck. If it fires you are looking at replacing the timing chain. If it jumped once it will jump again. Hope this helps.

seems fuel related--pump and pressure regulator may be failing--a pressure test for residual fuel is needed. Go to an honest, independent or specialist. Injector driver could be going bad. It\'s in the computer. Get a obd 1 scan tool on it to read data as well as any codes

Could be a problem with the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor if equipped. The pickup coil provides the crank signal for the injectors and ignition module.
Did you clear the code and then 53 came back ?
On most models code 53 means the computer or one of the components is getting over 13 volts.

check to see if the wiring harness connecting to the plug is not corroded.
