    2002 Dakota. What to do before I try to crank it

    I have inherited a 02 Dakota with 20??? Miles. It has sat for 6 years at least. Drain gas and blow lines seems to be first thing. If it will crank after that then what? It's a crew cab with a 5.2 automatic transmission

    your on the right track James. after you do get it fired up take it for a short drive then charge all the fluids out with fresh. don't forget to flush the radiator too.
