    Okay, so I just inherited my step-dads truck... It hasnt been driven in god knows how long and so I charged both batteries and it turns over.... Very slowly and has a grind...

    Well, I checked the oil... Its 1)Black as night and 2) Almost empty

    I'm a Subaru guy, I could rebuild one from the ground up, owned three already, but know very little about these trucks...

    I know it needs 15w-40... but how much??
