I've an 89' F-150/302ci/5speed. Have replaced plugs, wires, distributor, ignition module among other parts. It'll crank and run as good as one could ask, once getting on up to temp it'll miss, backfire and die. I've chased fuel and fire, i'm leaning on fire however. No sign when it's coming, no "check engine" light? Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?
