Question about Ford F-150
So your saying that you changed the distributor yes/no or just the cap and rotor if you pulled out the distributor did you mark the rotor position and body case before removal if not now you need to do a #1 on it pull out the distributor rotate the crankshaft to bring the #1 piston to tdc and then reinstall it,///// why did you start changing parts I need to know original symptoms why and how it was running , was there check engine codes , did you check the EGR valve vacuum lines and the valve if its closed all the way or clogged it will cause exhaust fumes to foul out the plugs and turn them black from not recirculating the unburnt fuel and then more fresh fuel is coming in messing up the air/fuel ratio, please post back with a correct list of everything you've done and include the trucks running condition before problems started and the mileage on the vehicle

pull a wire and ground it via useing a screw driver at the end of the spark plug boot to check for spark / if their is no spark / ignition control module / there is also a crank shaft position sensor / located on the back side of the motor under the coil packs / pain to get to / also the nuetral safty switch / to check the neutral safty switch diconnect the big harnest at the neutral safty switch put a fuse tester to the yellow wire / have someone turn the key / with the tester grounded the light should come on / now we know the ignition switch has power going through it. if there is a no power at the yellow wire / bad ignition switch / does the car have a relay located at the top of the radiator core support (up by the radiator looking down drivers side)if it does not gm will install one for free / if there is / look for the purple wire coming out of the relay and Follow it down to the starter / reconnect the neutral safty swtch / touch the small S (the smallest screw) terminal on the starter soilenoid / have someone turn the key forward check the light / this will detemine if the relay is good / CAREFULL NOT to touch the big starter wire with the little one it will jump the starter / I HAVE THE SAME CAR / Hope this helps

turn the key to the on position a see if you can here a buzzing sound around the fuel tank,if you don't hear a sound then. (be very careful while doing this) with the key off take a fuel line coming from the tank loose,make sure its pointed away from you and turn the key to the on position,see if any gas comes out,if not then your fuel pump is probably bad.
