but on my way home it stalled, drove awhile and stalled when I slowed down. Parked It. Came back the next day and it started and ran good until I put it in gear, then it would die, did this over and over. Had it towed home, now it wont start. Turns over but wont run. Ideas

Hunter, i have the same year of ranger and the same issue, you can only pump gas slow. i would really like to know why it does this, Also, Hunter, do you have the gas cap that you have to wait for the hissing to stop before you can remove it?

I have the same problem smelling gas when I open my rear window. As far as I can tell there is no leak, just a bad smell of gas. So I have to keep my window shut. And my truck idles weird going down the road like it wants to stall. And when I stop at a red light it acts like it wants to die. Everything replaced. Is there a recall? Or should I say there should be a recall..

I had the same problem with my 1986 Ford Ranger for 7 years now. The low pressure fuel pump seems to be acting up so I had to drop the fuel tank and disconnect what you called the "main hose" and filler tube to the tank. What I found inside that "main hose" was another smaller hose which you cannot see unless you actually take out the filler tube (mine has three screws and a hose clamp) that is actually the main hose and is supposed to be connected to the filler tube that slides into the secondary safety hose but it was disconnected (partially blocking both tubes causing the fuel to be pumped partially through that secondary safety hose (no fuel should be running through that hose while fueling up) and the main hose which in turn caused the fuel to back up in the filler tube and shut off the gas station fuel pump unless they set the pump to pump gas slowly. If I knew there was another tube inside that visible outer tube I would have been able to understand better of what could be wrong. The only reason I found the answer to this problem is because I had another problem. I guess that outer tube protects the inner tube. I don't know how the inner hose came off the filler tube but I could see the outline of a clamp of some kind but it was gone. I checked the inside of the fuel tank and found nothing. maby it was made out of a plastic and just disintegrated in the fuel tank. Anyway I just put a hose clamp on it since their is enough room inside the secondary hose.

You might replace the coil pack. I had a similar problem with my '04 ranger, and after a huge run-around with the dealer and my mechanic playing with fuel pumps/relays/fuses, the mechanic called a friend who told him to replace the coil pack (70 dollars) and ... voila - good as new. (1500 other dollars and two fuel pumps later though) (blarggh)
