94 f150 no start, no spark
working on a 94 ford f150 302 motor.
It quit running abruptly the other day.
It has fuel at the rail (I could not test the pressure as I did not have proper adapter for fuel press gauge I have)
but it is building pressure just don't know how much.
The coil reistances were within specs (according to the hayes manual I have (only thing I had available)
all tests pointed to the Ignition module being faulty (it is the external type), which I took off and had tested at autozone (it failed the test)
the test that pointed to the Ign module was to:
probe the neg side of the coil with a test light and crank the engine, the light was supposed to blink with each pulse of the coil, but it just stayed on steady while cranking (the manual now said said that I needed to test the ign module)
Put a new ign module on, and cranked it. it fired a couple of times but never started. (interestingly, the coil still had the "test light does not blink" issue as stated above).
Could it be flooded ( from cranking it before the I replaced the ign module) or maybe the coil is bad as well even though its resistances are within spec.
I took some spark plugs out, in order to clean them up and to allow any extra fuel to exit the cylinders before I try again.....
I need advice on where to go next or at least to tell me if I am going in the right direction
