1998 ford raner not getting any fire

If it's not getting fuel check the interia switch. There is a label under you hood that explains "If vehicle fails to start". The switch is on the passenger side kicker panel behind it. If it accidently getting kicked by a passenger it can turn the fuel pump off. Just check it happens all the time to Ford owners.

1994 ford ranger extended cab 6 cyl fuel injected 2 wheel drive automatic

This year of ranger had a few flaws, In one case, a break power booster was robbing the vacumm, you can test this by plugging it off and seeing the differance, but you will have limited brakes. This model year had a problem with a vacuum leak on the manifold. You can check these in many ways, but please don't use starting fluid. The rear of the manifold usually on the drivers side where it seals to the block.
Also, in 2 other cases a cracked head has gave me the same problem. It is caused from a loss of vacuum.
