Thumbs up After all the parts and SUGGESTIONS

I had purchased this Ranger to drive. I am 64 and disabled and was asking for suggestions on solving the problem that I had with it. Maybe I was too trusting in following the suggestions. I have never turned a wrench on a Ford before. I was a dedicated Chevy man and still drive the first new Chevt truck I purchased in 1971. I still drive the 1974 Chevy Impala I purchased in 1973. All of that said I ran a compression test on the ford today and guess what? #2 cyl has only 25lbs . all others have 125-140. I think I found the problem.
I have a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT. 2.5 Litre 4 speed w/ od. I have never owned a ford truck and purchased this one at a Farm auction for 1500.00.
