Default Truck stalling right after starting

Hey all, having a tough go and needed some guidance, please link anything that may have already been answered but i'll shoot it out anyways.

2000 Ford Ranger, 116000 miles, 3.0L Flex, Replaced both head gaskets about 2 months ago.

Now here's the problem. I was putting fuel in 2 days ago and the truck stalled as I was leaving the pump. I started the truck back up and put it in drive and it stalled again. So I realized that if I just started it and let it idle, the truck would run fine but if I gave it any gas it would stall out. So I had it towed home.

So I picked up a new fuel filter and installed today, primed the fuel system thinking that would be the problem, well it wasn't. Now the truck starts right up (cranks and turns over with no problem) but immediately stalls within 1-2 seconds. I can repeat that process over and over. Starts perfectly and stalls right away. I can hear the fuel pump run when I turn the key to the 'ON' position.

So now I'm stumped as to what to do next. The truck starts good, no hesitation when starting but just stalls right away, I'm going to rent a pressure tool from autozone tomorrow and check the Schraeder valve and see if there is pressure at the fuel line. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you

Sounds like a fuel pressure/pump issue. Also check the fuel pump to make sure that it is good and isn't bad/going out.

Well after tomorrow, I'll check the pressure at the fuel assembly and hopefully that'll give me some answers as to if the pressure in the system is good

Check for codes, even if the CEL is off.

Could be a dirty /bad MAF. Try disconnecting the MAF and then try and start it. Check airintake for cracks or blockage.

Look for vacuum leak.

Clean IAC valve.

Report back.

So after checking the MAF and IAC, I had some help ready to remove the truck bed and replace the fuel pump after I cleaned the MAF and IAC and it didnt help. As I was putting back on the IAC, I noticed the K&N Intake had become disconnected and long story short, I hooked it back up and the engine started up and idled as normal. So now I just feel really dumb haha
