Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab
It cranks but want start.i dont think it is getting gas.where is the fuel filter?
I had a problem like this with a Pontiac sunbird years ago, it would die while driving down the road, and it would not crank until it had sat for a time (ranged from 5 mins to 2 hrs).
the mechanic said it was the fuel filter, replaced it and the car started immediately and never had the problem again. so it could be the fuel filter. you should be able to take it to an auto parts place and hook it up to the comp and it will give you some codes to help.
also, to answer ovs2 Im pretty sure the ranger isnt offered as a diesel.

Fuel filter usually dont cause it to die and not start back, thay usually cause rough running. see if your fuel pump is running by getting in and roll up all windows so as quite as possible then cycle the key from off to run and lisen for the pump to run for 2 to 3 seconds should be a faint buzz sound if no sound is heard then replace the fuel pump relay, if no help probably going to need fuel pump
