First, try replacing the fuel filter and see if that fixes it.

I have a 87 ford ranger and i put a fuel pump in the tank and drove about a mile and died.Has gas to the engine. will only run if sprayed down the throttle body.Its a 2.9, any thoughts on problem. Thank

there are 2 fuel pumps, a low pressure in the tank and a high pressure on the frame rail. the high pressure pump is probably bad. Check your relay and inertia/cut off switch first.

2002 ford ranger. some mornings when we get to a

I had the exact same problem with a chev where it would stall or almost stall at an intersection like it had a clutch, Mine seemed to only happen when it warmed up. It turned out to be the torque converter clutch (TCC) inside the tranny. Where my car was getting quite old I opted to just disconnect it, a local transmission shop confirmed it wouldn't cause any problems but I would loose gas milage on the highway. Where the 02 ranger is all electronic shifting you may want to check if disconecting would cause any problems.
