Unhappy 2000 Ford v6 3.0 Flex Code Errors

First off I'm by no means a mechanic, hence why I am here! My truck is a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4wd v6 3.0 Flex I am running 87 Octane in it however!

My problems started off by the vehicle sputtering and puttering one day not long after I got gas, thought I just got water in the tank? It died on me and my buddy showed me a trick by taking the neg. off the battery terminal and leaving that for a few minutes to reset it or something. Well that worked so I went and put some ISO HEET in the gas to try and treat the (WATER?) and put some fuel treatment in it. Well that didn't work. after the thing dying over and over after driving for a day and the only thing getting it to run again is by reseting cpu by removing the neg battery terminal for about 2 minutes. I got a couple local opinions and they said bad fuel pump. So I replaced the fuel pump, and fuel filter.

That got it it running again fine for two tanks of fuel no problem. Well just before filling up the tank again at tank #3 after new fuel pump boom! Same problem I'm back to square one!

I took the truck and borrowed a code reader at local parts store that read error p0176. I think I found the part but it's like 500 bucks... Any clue's? Any hints? Any Help, PLEASE! BTW Examples, videos or something would be great as I am stupid when it comes to vehicles! Yes I replaced the fuel pump but it was at the aid of youtube videos ha!

God bless and thank you~
