I have a 1996 ford f150. It was running but died twice on me I parked it and now it will crank over but won't start. I sprayed starting fluid to try and get it to start it is getting fuel to the injectors I changed the ignition coil. What possibly can I try next?

Go with the basics. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, check fuel pressure, check fuel injector pulse.

How long since a tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes?
