1996 ford f-250 w/460 & E4OD transmission.
Engine cranks but won't start.
Problem started as intermittent then just would not start.
Replaced the ignition module, started fine.
Problem reoccurred 2 weeks later intermittently then would not start.
Replaced the coil, it would still crank but not start.
I checked the coil with a spark plug tester and wasn't getting any fire, then 5 minutes later it started fine.
no I bought it at napa
Where would the problem be if I don't get any voltage to the coil?Could it be a resistor getting hot then having time to cool off?
It was just a theory posed to me earlier by a friend, I just wanted to verify.Sounds to me like I might just have a loose wire somewhere, maybe.Though it wouldn't hurt to thouroghly clean the ignition module connections either.
I've been working with American made cars since 1992.
