Question about Ford Ranger
This problem is caused by the transmission torque converter lockup clutch not releasing as you come to a stop (a torque converter is the fluid coupling that connects the transmission to the engine), this is not a fuel filter problem, you are exactly right in your feeling that is like a manual transmission and your forgot to depress the clutch coming to a stop (which I have done a few times). As for the replacement of the torque converter that will require that you remove the transmission, the torque converter is bolted to the flywheel and the other end goes into the transmission front pump and input shaft. I have seen this problem many times over the years with automatic transmissions in Ford products. I can make one last suggestion before you remove the transmission, have the fluid in the transmission flushed out, the problem can sometimes be caused by the friction modifiers being worn out in the fluid, it usually occurs in vehicles which have not had the transmission fluid changed every 60,000 miles as recommended by Ford.
