The engine turning over with the starter & cranking
is the same thing
You have a No Crank or No Start?
You may hear the fuel pump, but have to check
for pressure with a gauge on the motor or with
a scan tool
Have to check for codes
You may have bad ignition coils
& it went into ETC Fail Safe, to protect
the exhaust converter from cylinder misfires

    Are you not planning on going to the same shop or a different one. We can only guess at so may things & I gather you won't be working on it yourself

I have a 98 explorer and had a similar problem. It wound up being bad spark plug wires. So I changed them and the spark plugs while I was at it. It ran great and still does. I'm not sure if that's your problem I would need more information.

Lost power suddenly, idles but will not accellerate

Have your fuel pump and fuel filter replaced. If you let the truck sit off for 30 to 45 min; and then try to start it and drive, it should run again but only for a few minutes before losing power again. This is caused by the fuel pump overheating.

My truck 99 ford ranger died while driving down the road

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
