Question about 2005 Ford Ranger
You could check your TPS, throttle position sensor, its located on the Airhorn. The TPS controls the amount of fuel you get from the Injectors when you put your foot on the pedal. If you have access to a fuelpump pressure gauge you could test the pump output. (Sometimes Autozone and Oreillys have Loaner tools.) Another tool would be an Injector light or use a Voltmeter on an Injector harness.
If you have fuelpump pressure, You need the Injectors working.
When you go to put on the new gas filter, slip a piece of hose on the pumpline and see if you have pressure. You could get a jar and even do a fueltest. The engine should at least "hit" with a trickle of fuel, so any pressure should be enough for the motor to fire.
Check simple things like fuses, your MAF sensor in the Air Intake. If no success you are down to the "Wiggle" test.
