Truck Starts sometimes and sometimes wont

Ok, I did the 10k mod a while back, and after doing it, I tried to wire up a switch so I could turn it off and on. Well while getting the switch done, the switch didnt work and it had a bad loping sound. So I took everything back off and put it back to stock. Then I replaced the ICP sensor. It didnt fix anything. If I let the truck sit for a while it will start. But if I drive it then shut it off then try to start it again, it wont start. Please let me know what you think it could be. Thanks

Make sure the pins of the ICP connector are making good contact (they sometimes get opened up too much if you put the 10k leads into the connector ... and when you take it off you get bad/intermittent contact). You could try too squeeze them down a bit or get a new pigtail:

ICP Sensor Connector (repair connector with 12” pigtails for ICP, EOT, EBP sensors)
(Ford) 5C3Z-12224-A
(International) 2501105C1
