I drove my 05 5.3 (354k miles) to the storage unit 3 nights ago to pick up some stuff for a yard sale, ran fine. After the yard sale I packed it up and tried starting it, but it wouldn’t start. The next day I decided to deal with it. I couldn’t get it to start, even though it sounded like it wanted to. I sprayed some starting fluid and it still didn’t start from. It eventually came through and started and ran like in the video below. It looked like white smoke coming from the exhaust, couldn’t tell if it was bluish. It did smell like my 2 stroke on my jon so maybe oil in the combustion chamber? It does have a front crank seal oil leak that I’ve known about for a year now, I’ve just kept on refilling the oil. It sounds similar to how my ranger sounded before the fuel pump went completely out. I’d like to get it back on the road soon. I like my ranger and all, but it just doesn’t have the space or power of a full size.
