Question about 2002 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Began about 8 months ago not starting when hot. Wait 15 minutes with hood open, would start right up. When hot, starts and revs up for about 3-5 seconds before stopping or stuttering before dying. Hot daytime sitting, won't start. Cool evening will start. Once running seems to keep going unless you turn the engine off. Lately has progressed to not starting when hot (weather and/or engine). Has "stuttered" a couple of times when turning corners but kept running. Replaced fuel filter, now hot daytime and wouldn't start. Waiting till evening. Fuel pump seems too easy (gets hot and stops working), wondering about coil going bad, wires, etc. Looking for easy ideas to try.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You have a IAC problem (Idle Air Control) This may or may not set off a drivability code you may be able to clean it and restore it the proper way is to remove it and use brake cleaner (This is waht the dealer use) They dont want you to use carburator cleaner it just works temporary

Like Laurie Mack said. It is the inertia switch below the glove box. Here is some funny information. DON'T change the fuel pump first. Interesting fact: I bought the new inertia switch from Ford and the install instructions that came with it said to install the switch in the protected area to the right where the fuses are. It is like Ford knows it was a dumb place to put the inertia switch, but they won't let you know until after you buy a new one. I have read at least 20 other people on here that had the same problem I just had.

It doesn't floods out, the fuel pressure is too low: either you have fitted a pump that is too small or you have contaminants that are clogging the fuel lines.
Take out the fuel pump, make sure it's the correct one, take out the tank and wash it thoroughly, flush the fuel lines, test the fuel pressure regulator and replace it if you have any doubts and finally have the injectors professionally cleaned at a repair shop.

Your alternator might be bad also, or the crank sensor
