Replace the fuel filter as the fist action. Often this is charged for - but not done on a service, and if blocked will starve the engine. Just done mine after 3 years - would not believe the cr@p that was in it.
If not much difference, check the fuel pump in the tank, and any cables to it.
If this fails, the engine needs to **** the fuel more - and can lead to starvation problems too.
Change the air filter every year, as this is cheap and will give you better MPG anyway.

replace the fuel regulator,its about a $50.00 part and takes about 15 minutes to change,but first relieve the fuel pressure and you can do it in a couple of ways,hitting the fuel pump shut off swith(inertia switch)until the red button pops up,but remember to reset it when done,located either behind the passengers side kick panel or under the carpet in the middle under the dash then start it to run it out of gas which there will still be a little bit in the lines,...or drain it at the valve to check for pressure it looks like a valve stem for a tire.

ive seen this before with a 1991 F-150 5.0 litre,so i will tell you what ive experienced and let you decide what to do..the idle air bypass solenoid gets built up with carbon and it runs out of the air mixture.take it out and clean it with carb cleaner,incase you dont know what it looks like its round like an electric motor with a square plate hooked to it with the corners cut off,and it hooks to the throttle body.And ive seen the fuel regulator go bad as well..

When you turn the key to on (not starting) is the "check engine" light on? The trucks computer controls the fuel pump. If the check engine light is not on then the computer is not turning on. I had the same problem a couple weeks ago in a car. I found a wire harness next to the battery that had pulled apart. It was the ground for the computer. You should check any ground wires around the battery and ground wires around the computer. Also listen when you turn the key on you should hear the relay near the computer "click" on.
If you know where the code reader hookup is under the hood (near the firewall either side) then you can manually turn the fuel pump on with the key on. To test the fuel pump. Just ground the fuel pump wire.

I was told the Kill switch is the cause of my Ford F150 not starting. It sounds like it wants to turnover but there's no fuel going to my motor, fuel line is dry and they can't hear the fuel pump turning on.
