Got a '98 Ranger "dumped" on me
I've just "inherited" a 1998 Ranger single cab with the 3.0L engine. It's been sitting at my house for about 4 years and the owner just told me "you can have it". I tried starting it, and while it tries to start using starting fluid, it just won't keep running. I'm guessing the fuel has gone bad and maybe the lines are fouled up.
I tried putting fresh fuel in, but after only a gallon or two, it started to overflow, so I assumed it was stored with a full tank. When I tried to pump the fuel out with a Pela, the tube won't go down into the tank far enough to get the hose wet. It goes down about 1.5 feet then stops.
Anyway, I think I'll like it if I ever get it going, but I have no tools or money to get it that far. Any advice on how to get it running cheaply would be appreciated.
