I have had the truck for three years. This past winter seems to be hard on the engine. The truck would not fire. Cranking the engine was no problem. I used starting fluid to get the engine to fire. I replaced the wire set, distributor, rotor, and coil last year. These have 20,000 miles on them.

Any reason why the truck won't fire in moist/humid conditions?

Hi:
If it only happens under these conditions, then it's most likely the plug wires or the distributor cap. I realize there is only 20K on them, but that would be my first guess.
