Question about 1984 Ford F 150

1984 Ford F-150 not getting spark.

I have a 1984 Ford F-150 6 Cylinder that has been sitting for four years. I haven't been able to get it started. Doesn't appear to be getting any spark. I have checked for a spark with a timing light and have double checked the timing light to make sure it works. I have charged the battery. I checked the distributor cap but I wasn't really sure what I was looking for. I am not sure what to check now.

Check and make sure you have voltage at the ignition coil connector, if you do replace the ignition moduel and the pick up coil, pick up sit in ignition distributor and moduel sit on the inside side of the drives side fender.

There is a ignition module on the fender well,on drivers side,it is most likely bad,not exspensive,and it is most likely the problem,replace it and you will get the spark back.The module is square,and flat,most of the time it is silver color,and has two sets of wires coming from it,that go to two connectors,these connectors are black,If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

You don't need to replace the switch,just the lock cylinder.You gotta pull the steering wheel,turn signal switch,etc to get at the cylinder(I haven't done this on a Ford product,but most cylinders have some kind of clip or bolt retaining them)Some auto parts stores used to have replacement cylinders,don't know if this is still the case)

I am about to purchase a 84 ford f 150 with 133k original miles...any specific problems with this year...?


You didn't state if it was a v-8 or a 6cyl engine.
Thats not alot of miles if it is a six cylinder engine.
But you might want to check the rear spring shackles and shackle mounts,They rust off leaving the leaf spring with no support to carry anything.

Clutch will not disengage


Check the reservoir on the firewall near the master cylinder. If the reservoir is empty fill it with brake fluid and pump the clutch and bleed the air out on the side of the transmission.

1984 Ford F-150 Starter problem


You have a bad connection. It will pass enough current to keep things running, but the starter load is causing it to burn the spots that are making contact.

I had this same issue with my '86 F-150, and the final solution was to replace the all the heavy cables: battery to solenoid, solenoid, to starter, and block to battery ground. Thoroughly clean the block where the negative cable connects, and the battery terminals.
