Could be an ignition switch problem.

When it doesn't start spray starter fluid into the TB. see if it fires up. if it does you have a fuel issue

If you don't understand we can explain further.

It will not fix itself by looking at it

i have tried to spray starter fluid in it before when it wouldnt start. so i know it is getting fuel. plus fuel pump and fuel filter were changed all new plugs and wires a new oil filter oil change and all new intake gaskets. it starts when we pull it down the road and i pop the clutch but that is the only time i can count on it starting. so how do i test for spark

I just reread your post. it starts
With a popstart. So it is prob the starter or the starter control circuit. Forget about testing for spark

You need a multimeter and a wiring diagram would help. Can you jump it using the fender relay?

Somtimes when you go to start it it will noteven crank right. When this happens do you have headlights.

Some possible causes. Bad battery connections, bad starter/connections, Bad fender solenoid/relay, bad "starter control cicuit"

A haynes manual would help. T he wire digram is so you know what wires to check. For power

Search is your friend

It always crank and when it will not start it will still popstart. Strange! I don't know what it could be. Ignition switch maybe?

idk but we have changed all but lines and injectors for fuel and its getting spark. but yes it will crank like it has so much juice. but it will not start everytime there is no telling when it will start and when it wont when we pull it sometimes it starts the second third time and sometimes i can pop it for 2 miles before it starts. i am just wanting to fix it so i can sell it i am done with the trucks problems

The same thing happen to my "94" 3.0 XLT. I pulled the relay in and out several times after the truck did not start. Then it started fine. I then cleaned male and female contacts on the relay with a peice of fine emery paper. The problem never happened again (so far this fixed it for me)
I knew when the truck was not going to start when I did not hear the fuel pump prime when I turned the key on prior to the starter cranking the engine.
I hope this cheap fix helps you
