Well i didn't know that, but what I can tell you is what the truck needs. 5x 14" tires, new battery, 2x valve cover gaskets, fresh fuel, oil change, new light bulbs (head lights, tail lights) it wouldn't hurt to clean the 6 injectors and the gas guage is busted.

A year is usually not long enough for it to go bad. I'm talking things that have been sitting for 2+ years. It also depends on how much oxygen gets in the system. If its fuel injected alot of times it takes longer for the gas itself to go bad, just because there is no air ports. The only air in the system is in the tank. Thats why it is recommended if you plan on storing the vehicle, to fill the tank right up to the top.

If this for real...

Do you know if you are running a synthetic lube in the diff ? Maybe a grease seal let a little lube out but it should have a smell.

Did you happen to go through water before the hill as stated in other posts so blatantly.

Not starting, funny what that would have to do with the tires spinning.

When I dont know what a liquid is my first thing is to check if it's flammable.
