                  Hi there Leroy, I will be happy to help with your question! We researched it and it looks like this does fit the fuel injected 5.0 motor for your 86 F-150. The other 2 engines that fit your truck are carbuerated. This Module also shows to fit on the distributor as well.

                  That's great question, Marty. The symptoms of a bad ignition module is that the engine gets hot, starts and then stops. This really may need a mechanic’s expertise to determine. I suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                I have a 1987 Mercury Cougar. There is voltage present at the coil wire going to the distributor but there is no spark present at the spark plug when trying to start the vehicle. Could the ignition control module be the problem?

                  A:

                  Symptoms of malfunctioning Ignition Control Module are sudden stalling of automobile engine when you are speeding up and not able to start the engine after repeated attempts are some of the major indications of problems, which may include ignition coil problems as well. Some of the symptoms that lead to problems in the ignition resulting in frequent stalling of engine are: TEMPERATURE STALLING: The most telling symptom of ignition module failure is temperature-related stalling. Temperature failures most often happen when the module has an internal short or one of its relays stick closed. As current flows through the module, its circuits will overload and refuse to function until they're left to cool. Most often, the car will start and run fine, but will stop running anywhere from seconds to minutes later. The engine may not restart immediately but will do if left to cool for few minutes., ENGINE VACCUM LEAK: caused by loose/broken vacuum hoses in the engine., EFFECTIVE SPEED CONTROL: caused when idle air bypass circuit of engine is clogged with dirt/fuel varnish thereby stalling the entry of fresh air., DEFECTIVE AIRFLOW SENSOR: When airflow sensor wire of your engine is plugged with dirt, this can lead to a problem., LOW ENGINE COMPRESSION: Low engine compression is caused because of the worn-out piston rings and cylinders of engine and leaky valves., DEFECTIVE COOLANT SENSOR: Defect in coolant sensors can lead to incorrect readings of engine temperature, thereby messing up the fuel mixture., FAULTY AIR TEMPERATURE SENSOR: Defective air temperature sensors can upset the air fuel mixture by recording wrong temperatures of the air entering the engine., FOULED SPARK PLUGS: These are one of the major causes of engine stalling, as they do not fire at the appropriate time to start the engine., FAULTY MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE (MAP) SENSOR: These sensors of engine, intake vacuum, which are used for determining engine load. Faulty sensors can lead to incorrect fuel supply, thereby giving an incorrect engine load., ADULTERATED GASOLINE: If the fuel (gasoline) is adulterated with more than 10% alcohol and water, then the air fuel mixture will not be strong enough for the ignition to happen., HIGH ELECTRIC LOAD ON IGNITION: An ideal charging ignition must produce 13.5-14.5 Volts. But if the battery has run low on voltage, it will result in engine stalling and misfiring.
                  For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.

                  A:

                  Ignition module overheating is a common problem and symptomatic of impending failure. This condition usually occurs because of an internal short within the module itself, and can cause stuttering, poor fuel economy, power loss or engine shut-off after warm-up. A classic sign of module overheating is a rich fuel mixture, which is indicated by a strong odor of gasoline in the engine exhaust when the engine is stuttering. With or without overheating, ignition modules will sometimes randomly fail. This condition is easily diagnosed, since the vehicle will die suddenly and without notice. A dead ignition module can be differentiated from a bad coil by a simple electrical test: while cranking the starter, connect a light-tester to the positive battery terminal and check for continuity with the black output wire on the module. If the module is working, the light will flicker on and of in a predictable fashion. If there is no light or the light is constant, it's time to replace your module.

              • Q:

                I need to know the location of the ignition control module for a 1990 ford e 350 club wagon van. I have a problem getting the vehicle started and when I can get it running like yesterday I let it run in idle in my driveway and after about 20 or so minutes it just stalled out. I did it again a short time later and after the same amount of time it just stalled out again. I have replaced the pick up pump in the gas tank, the fuel filter and also the fuel pump, thinking I may have had a fuel problem. After talking to my mechanic who is 19 miles away, he mentioned first the ignition module then the ignition coil. Please help

                  The Ignition Control Module module is located on a flat area on the base of the distributor in a 1990 Ford e350 club wagon van. Replacing this module should rectify the stalling issues.

                  A:

                  The ignition coil is a durable electrical transformer that contains the primary and secondary winding circuits (coils) of the ignition system. The wires on both coils must be fully insulated. If the insulation wears thin or cracks and two of the wire coils touch each other on either coil, they will immediately burn out the system.
