Question about 2003 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
Do you have an manual or automatic transmission.
If it is a automatic is it down shifting when you are going up hill? If the transmission does not go in to a lower gear the engine will die down and end up stalling.
A weak fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter could also cause your problem. So could a bad cat or timing advance.
So next time you start up hill start by putting it in a lower gear. If this works have your A.T. Checked out.
But if it does not work see if when your truck is running does exhaust smell like rotten eggs. that would be a plugged cat. If you a timing problem you could have black smoke coming out of exhaust.
On a 2003 if you have not changed the fuel filter lately it would not hurt to do so. If you have a check engine light on some of the parts stores will do a free engine check for you. Let me know if you need INFO on changing a part or how to find a part.
