I just got a 95 5.0, I got it for nearly nothing cause it kept not starting intermittently when the car would start it would fire right up. when it wouldn't start it wouldn't even sound close.
I heard the "computer" was changed, I am guessing the ecu? So I got it home and it fired up right away ran great then later no start. I replaced the cap rotor plugs still have to go in, and wires cause I just got the car. Then checked for spark, I get this small weak spark once and find the coil and coil wire BADLY corroded so much so I just replaced the coil. Again no start, when the car did start it would run for a couple minutes then die.
So after some reading I replaced the TFI thinking that would be it, nope. Still I get one weak spark then nothing after. Today I checked and have power @ the coil 6 something volts same as my tired of turning it over dead battery. No power at any of the TFI terminals in the harness (key off) That is what I read it should be, but with power on I only had power @ one # 2 from edge pin and not 2 like I read at TFI trouble shooting in this forum
The thing is I don't know which terminal it is cause I have seen both that they are different on the black and gray external TFI's I had a gray one but it wasn't a motorcraft so I don't know if it makes a difference.
I have a multimeter and want to test things cause I dont have the funds to just replace everything. I didn't understand how the PIP is tested, I am new to the multimeter and posting on forums. I hate starting my posting cause of a problem but that is how it goes this time I guess.
In the morning I am going to try checking grounds... oops I don't always do things in order
Thanks in advance for any help I am sure this will get figured out some time just hope sooner than later.
