Default 95 Ford Ranger starting issues

Hello all,
I have a 95 RAnger 2wd 2.3l and I'm having trouble!
I can start the truck first thing in the morning and it runs great. I drive to work w/o any problems. I come out after work and the truck starts great. I drive home w/o any problems. The problems start when I turn it off for any reason between points A&B! If I start the truck and then turn it off it will cran and crank. I can press/depress the gas pedal rapidly and it will sometimes start. I have changed more parts than I should have. New fuel pump, IAC valve, fuel pressure reg, fuel filter, (used working) injectors, throttle body pos sensor. The truck runs great
otherwise. It has 160k miles and I usually just drive it back and forth to work, but I'd hate to get stranded! I have noticed that it idles higher than normal once in a while. I have almost run out of parts to change! Timing issue? lol
Thanks to all that reply.

Thumbs up Re: 95 Ford Ranger starting issues

FYI to anyone out there having similar troubles. The temperature sensor that send the temp back to the computer4 was bad. It thought it was -20 degrees and would use the wrong air/fuel mixture. There are 2 sensors, one for the gauge and one for the computer. Hope this helps someone.
