Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab
It sounds like you have a problem with your transmission. If it has overheated in the past, it might be fused, it could be low or out of transmission fluid ... or there might be some sort of debris inside the transmission causing it to lock up. Automatic transmissions are not directly linked to the drive shaft like a manual transmission is (so when you hit the breaks on the highway the vehicle does not fight against you slowing down). For this reason, you would be able to put it in gear and the engine will not just stop (like releasing the clutch on a manual with the emergency break on). I recommend taking a look at the transmission fluid first. If it is low or empty, fill it.
If the transmission fluid is black or has a HUGE amount of debris in it then take it to a transmission shop and have them take a look. if it is full, still red, and has little or no debris in it .. I would still recommend taking it to a transmission shop to have it looked at -- it might be a locked differential or something simple .. but it is impossible to tell without taking a look at the truck.
