Default Seriously need help

I understand that this is a ranger forum, however my 87 f150 is the problem. As my truck is in the shop, I am stuck driving, or was stuck, my 150. Today in the parking lot and last night on the highway, my engine started failing. And eventually the truck shut off. The only thing that was changed was the automatic transmission fluid. When I turn the key, the engine rocks like its about to start. But won't. The engine does turn over but immediately after it shuts down. I really need some help right now bc I am currently vehicle less

Maybe its cutting fuel? when you turn the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump engage?

The pump goes on. I've tried both tanks. Both have fuel.

----------

It sparks but it cuts off.

Would transmission fluid affect starting? Or is it just a coincidence

No the tranny fluid shouldnt have anything to do with that. to me if it turns over that means either no spark or no fuel...
