i was once pulling a trailer with a ranger when it suddenly lost power and the engine died. turns out the problem was with the fuel shut off inertia switch. the switch is supposed to activate in case of accident. on my model the inertia switch is located in the passenger side under the glove box. dont know where yours is located. once you find it, just push the button and see if it resets. good luck.

before replacing the starter get a volt meter and test the voltage coming out of the voltage regulator which the power comes from the battery to the regulator down to the starter also make sure all wires on the starter are clean and what I mean is from rust because I had an f150 that did the same thing

first go to an auto partstore and have the code checked. most do it for free. could be coil, fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter or even a bad gas cap. but the dianogstic test should pin point the problem.

You may have a bad idle control valve. If you want to replace fuel pump yourself you will have to remove bed of truck or fuel tank.

if it runs fine in park and neutral and stalls in gear it sounds like your torque converter is staying locked up which would make it stall when you put it in gear. the torque converter connects your engine to the transmission, and should only lock up (like a releasing the clutch on a standard shift) at crusing speeds to help fuel economy, a quick and dirty way to tell is to remove the drive shaft and start and run the truck and put it in gear with the drive shaft completely removed, and if it stays running then you know it is in the torque converter.
