No Spark on '96 460 CI F-250
Hi All, This is my first post, so bear with me. My issue is that I have intermittent issues with my truck. I occasionally just dies. When it does, I've pulled the number one plug wire, and tested it against the frame, and there is no spark. I'll let it sit there for a half hour, or so, and it'll start back up.... for a while, anyway. The coil, plugs, wires, and cap + rotor were all changed about 10,000 miles ago. Last week, the truck simply wouldn't start up at all, but it would turn over just fine. I changed the cap and rotor again, and it started up and ran just fine... now it's starting to stall, again, and is making me think there is another issue. It's definitely a spark issue, as fuel pressure is fine, and the motor is getting plenty of air... any ideas? Is this something with vacuum advance or timing? I will admit that my battery ground cable probably needs to be replaced. Could this be my issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
