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.

Can't get spark on a 1984 f 150 after we changed engines manifolds and anything that had wires going to it. it started briefly one time and the timing was off so we changed it one tooth . something in dash...


You will still get a spark if the timing is off, just not at the right time. 84, distributor and rotor? are you getting spark at the rotor? If it has ignition coils, find out what the ohms are supposed to be, and check them all. Did you check the ignition fuse? It wil be a large one. The sound under dash could have been it blowing.

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.
