Default 2000 Ford Ranger 2.5L 5speed won't start unless given gas then dies when let off?

I have to hold down the accelerator to keep it running. If I put it in reverse, it dies. When driving and switching from 1st to 2nd gears, it's a rough switch. After running it for a bit, it will continue to run after I've taken my foot off the gas, but it has a rough idle.

fuel filter, idle speed, fuel pump, gear lube. check all that and it should fix all your problems.

sounds like fuel problems. try changing the gas filter.
