97 Ranger running lean?

So Im about to buy a 97 ranger and the guy said the check engine light has been on for like two years, he got it fixed about 3 times and still keeps coming back but has had no effect on the trucks performance. The test said it was running lean. What could this possibly be and around how much is it to fix? Thanks.

Re: 97 Ranger running lean?

I have a '97 Ranger and my 'check engine' light has been on/off for several years too. I had a tech read the error codes and it came up as 'unknown' or something like that. I decided it isn't causing any problems, and so far it hasn't.
