Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

I have absolutely no clue what your question is here. You have told me a couple of things but have not asked anything or even told me enough to try to guess at it. I dont know who this woman is or why shes telling your son anything or whos truck needs spark plugs or what guy says 4 cylinders need phasers or why.

Please give me some details to work with here.

Gotcha. I didnt see your original question there. I assume this is a ford 3 valve in f150? Is the belt still on? If so maybe the alternator just wont turn because the rest of the engine wont turn.

From the sounds of it and assuming it is a 3 valve (4.6 or 5.4) I would assume its going to need an engine. Most times when they get cam/timing related codes in the end it ends up needing an engine.
