Just a guess, since some disengage if signal not getting thru that motor running, to prevent starter brushes overheating, burning, etc, and you say motor starts, maybe a dirty electrical connection, like oil or something got in somewhere, interfering with that signal being received. To rule that out I guess yourself or shop, have all electrical connectors looked at for oil, dirt, oxidation, loose, etc... Simply pulling connectors and pushing back on few times might do it if that the issue. Notice if it feels tight or not. If oily dirty, maybe spray male and female parts of connector with alcohol based spray degreaser. Silicone spray has fast evaporating alcohol but the silicone may interfere with electrical connection. Also, be sure your remote button not triggered by weak spring contacting when you set it down or put in pocket as that'll act to shut off if already on. I had 1 get like that. Would park car, head in, putting remote in pocket after going in, would notice car running from inside.

The transmission will not fit. The automatic transmission (a4ld) came out in the 2.3L and the 4.0L. The bolt patterns are not the same for the 3.0L.

Disconnect the alarm. No one is going to steal a 96 ranger. Trace the wiring as the alarm intercepted the ignition, which you will have to reconnect. Pay attention to color codes and wire sizes if you do not have a diagram. Water proof the new connections.

You need to remove and clean the air bypass idle speed control valve and the throttle valve and bore, they get gunked up from combustion "blow back" and that causes stalls and rough cold running. Use only CRC Throttle Valve cleaner (any auto parts store) on both parts, carb spray will destroy the non stick coating inside the parts.
