Default What's up people?! (a little help?)

Hryet guys what's up? Been a lurker here for a couple of days, and finally decided to join.

My name is Tra I live in New Hampshire(but dislike the cold very much), love the outdoors when nice weather is around . I like to rap and play guitar.

Use to own a Toyota Tercel , loved that damn thing but had many problems, engine blew.

Although I'm part of the forum I not part of the ranger family, but I may be today which leads me to ask; what forum can i get help about buying a ranger? I'm looking at one today and have a couple of questions to ask that are simple but would really help.

I'm looking at a 2000 ranger 5 speed. Guy said nothing is wrong with it besides a small.exhaust leak that is causing the check engine light to be on. I asked how bad the leak is and he said not bad at all, ltd very small. He said the exhaust isn't loud in anyway.
My question is, how much will it be to fix the leak, and can that be a reason for the engine light?
The guy wants 2300 for it, but I'll offer him 1600 to 1900 for it.(cars got 165k on it)
Any tips or advice will really really help me, thank you.

X2, I just made an educated guess, don't trust it though, because I could be wrong
