    DT466e in a (yr 2000) 4900 4x2, 6 Speed Plus tranny.
    235,000 on the odometer, but a whopping 9200 hours.
    Truck was last used in 2015, supposedly parked due to transmission issue.
    My question is, with this many hours on the engine, what kind of longevity can I expect?
    The truck does start, runs poorly probably from 7 year old fuel. Gonna drain, change filter, and toss in 20 gal of fresh fuel and see if that improves.
    Thanks in advance.

    Change the oil too. Isnt this a HEUI engine. Engine oil can affect runability. Generally speaking I would service it all up and put some miles on it, see what happens.
