I am not sure. I wish I knew. I am newbie with fixing issues with my vehicle. I have been googl'ing nonstop for days. I replaced the battery because they could not charge it at advance auto parts. I am now suspecting the starter solenoid. It's a cheap thing to swap out. I just don't want to unload a lot more cash. I also read where the relay fuses may be gone. The thing I don't understand is why the truck can start in the morning, but after running around and parking for a while, it won't start up again. I hope it doesn't have anything to do with the transmission.

lol. I know what you mean about not spending too much. I recently removed my fuel filter and it was clogged! I'm replacing it tomorrow and see how that works, but it makes sense to me though.
#5 of 5 96 Ranger that has been idle for 6 years

We are looking to buy a 96 Ranger 4cyl. that has not been started for 6 years. We can smell old nasty gas but the tank is empty. We put in a few fresh gallons of gas but it wouldn't start. We can get the engine to start on ether but it won't pick up any fuel and run.. Should the injectors be the first place to start tearing out and checking for varnish? How can we tell if it is the fuel pump?
