Thank you all.
It is great forum that help a person like me who is don't know about car at all.

I have a 97 Ranger, 4.0 with 200+ miles. Has slight valve tap, but runs and shifts good. 4x4. Purchased it in Maryland for 600.00.

There are deals out there, you just got to find them. When I got mine, the Check engine light WAS NOT on!. How rare is that?. Got it last year and still using it and runs good. Body is in good shape.

Craigs list purchase... You can find them you just got to look and deal.

Jo, are u young enough to join the Air Force. They will fly u where u need to go.
Seriously though, I would keep looking. You can dp better at a private party. Have the truck checked out by a qualified mechanic. Comp. test, look for water in the oil, clean oil, crawl under it and look around. Rusty brake lines. Push HARD on the brakes when parked. Check the coolant fluid when cold Auto trans , check fluid for color and smell.
Try the E brake. If it goes to the floor you need new shoes. Check the frony pads for wear.
The brake pedal wear and drivers door sag when open will tell u wether or not the mileage is close to what it says. Take a refridgerator magnet and check for body filler. Well your under look for leaks AFTER a drive
Let go of the wheel while driving and see if it pulls . Check the play in the steering wheel while sittin sytill. Should not be more than a inch.
Thats enough for now, . Luck.
