Did you change fuel filter? I'd change fuel filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it, Lots if questionable fuel going around these days.

Every time it starts raining truck starts missing and cutting out it's a 97 f 150 ford 4.6 motor.


Possibly a plug wire or cracked distributor cap. I'd take a spray bottle and while it's running (be careful not to get your body parts in danger of the fan) spray some water on the cap area. If everything seems fine, you could spray down each plug wire at a time. See if you find the culprit that way. For a vehicle so old, if you haven't done a tune up lately. It's probably a good time. Replace the distributor cap and rotor. Plugs and wires.

Ford 1981 f 150 not running changed Coil distributor cap Roar arm plug wires did not help started bur ran extremely rough then died


motors need 3 things to run properly. gas spark and compression. the starting point. also spark timing.
the motor you are dealing with is easy. i just rebult a 1978. anyways sounds like a timing problem . first i would check the distributer. if all is ok spay a squirt of starting fluid in the air filter, or even wd40.,,,,,,,see if it is gasoline problem. isolate where the problem is.

Try changing the spark plug wires, if that doesnt eradicate the problem, try replacing ignition module & Distributer cap (if applicable). the problem is you are getting moisutre in there whenever its wet outside

2002 F-150 V-8 Tritan with a miss. Change plugs?


I suspect the coil pack for one of your cylinders. Ford uses a spark plug cap with a electronic coil pack attached to each plug. I have repaced three on my 2002 F150 so far; Its a common problem
