1996 Ford F-350 Problems

Catalytic converters can go bad and potentially plug the exhaust, hurting engine efficiency and performance.

Failure to change the power steering fluid can cause the fluid to become gray with metal particles. The contaminated fluid can damage the power steering pump resulting in a growling noise when the wheel is turned; the damaged pump will require replacement to eliminate the noise.. Life of the power steering gearbox and pump will be shortened if the fluid is not serviced regularly.

The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

I just replaced plugs, wires, cap and roter. I readjusted the wire routing. Still rough running and misfiring

Rust in fuel system.
Will not start.
Changed both fuel filters.

I haven't driven the truck often. When I parked it, it was fine but water in tank light was on. The filters were changed. The tanks were cleaned out and fuel pumps changed. Batteries (2) are new. Could it be the fuel line or what could be wrong?
