Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
It sounds like your ignition module is failing after reaching a temperature threshold, this occurs when the component's sealed silicone housing dries out and tends to ground out or leak voltage. The component is located on the back side of the distributor housing if memory serves me on the V-6 engines they are a pain in the neck to reach and I am pretty sure the bolts that hold the ignition module to the side of the distributor are torx head machine bolts. If this doesn't fix the problem check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail it should read 30 - 40 psi or pressure if not replace the fuel pump.
