a few years is a very long time for inactivity and hopefully the entire thing was out of the weather. If it was i would start by checking all fuses and electrical connection points and cleaning them. If that doesnt do it then you have to start assessing all your pickup and discharge components such as corroded pulse generators and dirty magnet surfaces. I would do a thorough ekectrical cleaning sweep of anything and everything you feel comfortable maintainnancing first because if it did fire back up once you really do have a minor insignifigant issue that may be free of just cost pennies to fix yourself before you jump to conclusions or pay a mechanic. Dont get frustrated and dont start assuming things. If you want to assume something i would assume that your problem is minor and with a clear head and a few hrs youll be cruising the waterways.

Boy Danny you sure replaced a lot of stuff ! I have been fixing cars for thirty years on an off , worked for a Chevy & Isuzu dealer also worked for a Cadillac ,GMC ,Pontiac dealer .They sure don't like techs guessing ,costs them money and beside customers won't be customers very long when you guess. In it's simplest terms you need three things for an engine to start an run .Spark, fuel, compression . It's the job of the Technician to test an find what is missing . Test fuel pressure, test spark .test that the fuel injectors are squirting fuel .Watch some of these two guys videos ,they are good an they have a lot . 1996 Ford 150 No Start with ScannerDanner EricTheCarGuy all vehicles need the same things to start.
Is this the famous 3.0 V6? If you are getting no fire, you have a problem. There are many things that can cause this. It could be your distributor, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, coils, ect. You need to get your car tested for codes. This will help you pinpoint your problem. It can even be your sensors or ecm. The codes will help you a lot though. Then, you will know where to start.
We had this same problem with the 1992 Dodge Ram D250 pickup truck we own. We wasted a lot of money until my Uncle's mechanic (he owns a small auto shop) fixed the problem. There was some kind of oil pump shaft that needed replaced. Sorry I am not very smart with vehicles, but I do remember that it has something to do with the distributor and oil pump working together. The teeth on this particular part were chewed up so the distributor was not firing correctly. The part was replaced and the truck has started and ran just fine ever since. I wish I could remember what the part is called!!! But I just know it was a part that looked like a pipe kind of; it was straight and had some teeth like things at one end...
Could be a number of things. First check to see if you have spark.Then check your fuse and the fuel pump relay.Listen to see if the fuel pump is working you should hear a steady hum when you turn the key to the on position.
actually the only thing i can recomend is to have the alternator replace again for warranty and before starting the truck charge the batteries very well with a baterie charger make sure to charge them individually because with a low batterie the alternator has to put a lot of load and might burnt again
specially with dual batterie.
