    Is it getting fuel or do you normally have someone in the passenger seat? Check the inertia swith(fuel cutoff). There is a lable under your hood that explains if vechicle does not start. On the passenger side kicker panel there is a button that if accidently kick can turn your fuel off. Check that also, happens all the time to Ford owners.

If it's not getting fuel check the interia switch. There is a label under you hood that explains "If vehicle fails to start". The switch is on the passenger side kicker panel behind it. If it accidently getting kicked by a passenger it can turn the fuel pump off. Just check it happens all the time to Ford owners.

In the case of no spark you should check for power to the coil, Have the ignition module tested. Autozones can do this and its free.
Also make sure no vermin has chewed on any wires.

My 1987 ford ranger won't start. It turns over when I try to start it, but I can't seem to get it to run. All the fluids seem to be filled. Could it be the fuel pump, or a fuse?

try some petrol down the inlet manifold ,if it fires then look for a fuel problem ,if it doesnt fire then look for an electrical problem with teh electrics
