Question about 2002 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Will not start again until about an hour then it will start
When your truck stops check for spark at the spark plugs, next check that you have fuel pressure at the shrader valve, If you have no spark check the ignition modular, if no fuel pressure test fuel pump PSI, if both are not present change the ignition modular in the distributor .

Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

Ok, this sounds like a weak fuel pump and clogged filter. if possible, you will need to change these two vital devices. I would also replace the air filter as well.
Inspect the injection system for faults as well. make sure all injectors are firing properly and on time. replace any injector that isn't functioning correctly.

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.

It is recommended that you change the timing belt at 80000 miles, but I had one with over 200,000 miles that never had a problem.

Can also be dirty injector. When computer recognizes the miss, the light will come on, recording the active fault in memory. Advance auto will read the fault codes for you for free. Just a note: the light will reset after 3 complete warm up / cool down cycles if the fault no longer exists. If ignition checks good, take a hard look at those injectors. May need a cleaning.
