My credo
Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Just washed the truck, did a quick cleaning of the engine compartment, it was not hosed down. Started the truck to let it warm up, finished vacuuming the interior and the belts were squeaky/chirpy, so I shut the truck off. (it was running for about 5 minutes, temp was still cool). Finished up cleaning the interior then went to start and no fire. I can hear the fuel pump prime then stop when it get to pressure, it cranks just fine just doesn't fire up.

I'm sure I got a connector wet but which ones should I check? I did check coil and plug wires at the distributor and they were dry. I'm guessing its one of the sensors. Any thoughts?

Thank you for looking.

Edit: Just after posting went back to the truck. It fired up reluctantly. Sun must have dried the connector. Mods you may delete this post if you wish. Thank you.

Might have a cracked distributor cap
