2001 Ford Ranger starting issues after..........


Asked by Jul 24, 2018 at 12:36 PM about the 2001 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Ford Ranger, 2001, has been sitting for a few months until my son could
do some repairs.  This weekend he replaced the fuel filter, the flywheel,
serpentine belt, main bearing gasket, repaired the clutch which had stopped
working in two gears and oil/ transmission fluid. Bled transmission line.  Also
the truck was also low on antifreeze.

Today when we went to start it, it took several attempts with no sounds
before it started.  It runs fine but I don't want to get stranded.  

I'm a 68 year old 'girl' but thoughts are it could be from replacing the fuel filter
or the (new) battery sitting for 3 months.
