Default 1987 Ford Ranger owner..

hello there.. I have a 1987 Ford Ranger which I bought off a buddy for $600 bucks. The truck has been good to me except that sometimes you have to crank it more than once for it to start. Although it sucks that the top speed is only 85mph, I love my truck, but I am a bit surprised that for a 4 cylander car, the gas milage isn't all that great. anywho, I broke my shifter lever on my truck so, i'll probably be posting a seperate thread about that, hopefully someone can help.
