This year of ranger had a few flaws, In one case, a break power booster was robbing the vacumm, you can test this by plugging it off and seeing the differance, but you will have limited brakes. This model year had a problem with a vacuum leak on the manifold. You can check these in many ways, but please don't use starting fluid. The rear of the manifold usually on the drivers side where it seals to the block.
Also, in 2 other cases a cracked head has gave me the same problem. It is caused from a loss of vacuum.

This may been an ignition module or a MAF sensor, this car may need to be diagnosed using a OBD I computer code reader to accurately diagnose the problem.

there are a couple of things to look at. first take a look at the tempature controll sensor, its on the right side of the block. It kinda looks like a spark plug sticking out the side of the block. If its cracked or broken then it will mess with your idle. Also you should be checking your throtle body control censor and your throtle body. clean everything out. also the BWD Ignition Module/Control Unit. If its cracked it will cause this exact problem. I would also add a general tune up with spark plugs and wires. If you follow these directions I think you will be good, if this does not work let me know, I can give more info once I have a better idea.
