Yes sir. I have no clue what the problem was. It cranked and cranked but would not fire at all. But when I went out the next morning and turned key it started like normal and has been fine since. It had rained all that day so mabey something got damp is the only thing I can figure. Thank you for your reply

Chances are you're correct. What to try is this. At night, start the engine, open the hood, and mist water all over the plug wires, coil. Look to see (in the dark) it there is anything arcing (sparking).

Let me know what you find.

I look forward to hearing from you. I know it sounds like a generic test, but it works.

Hey joe. I didnt get a chance to try the test u suggested. Everything has been fine since friday until today when I pulled out of drive and got about 50yds down road and truck started jerking and would not rev up past 1/2 throttle then the fail safe mode light came on I pulled over and shut the engine off and restarted it and everything was normal for the rest of the trip and home. Any suggestions. Thanks, Frank
