I figured out what was going on. supposedly on ford rangers the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve) goes bad. i got a trouble code looked it up and sure enough it is the IAC Valve. Under 100 bucks for the part

Your IAC may be defective, first check the canister purge valve by removing the large hose off the charcoal canster and plugging the hose with a bolt or something you can fit into it, then try it also check PCV valve and see if it's bad. there are more things to check like fuel filter fuel pump and or fuel strainer if fuel tank but would need to have more information to help.

When catalytic converters go bad, the porcelain matrix inside comes loose and is noisy.
But you can just unbolt it, break up the loose chunks, pour out the pieces, and it will run better than ever.
If you don't pass the next emissions test, then replace it.
But it could just be the heat shield rattling instead.
Take the shield off first, to see if it goes away.
