Sounds like the problem I had. Difference is mine is a 3.0 V6. I'm thinking you have a vacume leak. Run out all the lines and find it if you can. Are you dripping oil and/or water (anti freeze)down the back of the engine? If so you may have a blown intake manifold gasket. Won't idle for crap but runs on the freeway but poor mileage. Will suck air when driving and may drip oil or water when parked.
1. Clean the Mass Air flow sensor
2. Replace throttle control sensor $30
3. clean pvc valve
4 find and fix vac leak
5 find vac leak in the intake manifold gasket upper or lower
Has to be one of these things. Try looking down the back of the engine with a mirror and flashlight for oil leak--listen for hissing vac leak

Do you have good spark? If you do its either fuel delivery or an electronic issue. Does your truck have a crank sensor?

It sounds like you have a major vacume leak. PCV valve stuck?
#72 of 117 Truck stalls out and doesn't start

I have a '95 Ranger XLT Super Cab V6 4.0L. I just replaced the battery, and the positive cable because it was corroded. So the next morning I went out to start it and nothing. I turn the key, and nothing happens. It doesn't turn over, dash lights don't turn on, and power windows and locks don't work. There's absolutely no power. It baffles me. I REFUSE to take this to a mechanic. I just need a little help. Oh, and both starter and alternator were replace a few years ago.

Well, to do any electrical checking, you need multimeter and a little knowledge about how to use it.

Sometimes when I start my ranger the rpms wont get up to where they should be and then my truck sputters and stalls out... i have to keep revving the engine to try to keep it going and i have no idea why...if anyone knows what could be wrong and could help that would be great....also when i drive there is some squealing noise that idk what that is either

First wild guesses on each:
-Failing/weak fuel pump. It's inside the fuel tank. A gauge can be attached to the fuel line under the hood to check the pressure. Low pressure means a weak pump.
There are multiple other things that could cause each problem.
