Run and obd2 scan at autozone or advance. this is free. This will let you know if any sensors are bad and it will give you a course of action. It could be your input or output speed sensor or your ECM or TCM. Exhaust these options before pinpointin the transmission as the problem Its also possible when they replaced the gas tank they dislodged a ground connection. Good Luck

I have a 1990 Ford Ranger Extended Cab with a M5OD V6 manual Transmission. I really like to know if there is a V8 that will bolt right up with out changing up the motor mounts.

There are no V8s that will bolt right up to your existing drivetrain. The swap would require modification of motor mounts, heater fan box or firewall depending on your motor of choice, a larger capacity radiator, splicing into your existing wiring, a v8 transmission (ie C4 if automatic) and a v8 transfer case if 4x4, and a minimum of a 8.8" ford rear end (preferably a 9" ford rear end)/dana 44 front end to handle the power.

There are many books out there specifically detailing how to swap a v8 into a Ford Ranger. Refer to this site if you are really interested in undertaking this project:

2002 Ford Ranger transmission slipping?

The longer you drive with that condition, the more damage you will cause. Park it until you can repair it.

Think of it as how long would you think it is okay to run your engine without oil? Zero.
