Need help bad no idea whats going on Sign In

I have a 2000 ford ranger XLT 6 cycl 3.0L 100k Miles, it has a 3 inch lift with 33's. O.K. well it first started when I start my truck for the first time of the day. It will die down (idle low as if it is going to stall) back to normal and back down again (the battery gauge goes down when it idles low), and sometimes will turn off and I would have to restart it. Then after that happens it wont do it again for the rest of the day unless it sits for 8 hours or so. It also idles rough when stop at a light (but not bad at all you can just tell and feel the little shake) Its been doing that for about 2 - 3 months now (when I got the truck). Now just the other day out of know where i started my truck and and was pulling out of the drive way i hit the gas I believe when it shifts into second gear it wont catch, the RPM's go up and the truck doesnt speed up at all but once i let go of the gas and let the RPMS's back down it finally shifts into second with a jerk. Then after that it really doesnt do it anymore even after I stop at a red light. But often does it when i first start my truck.

The tranny fluid is dirty but not real bad, and doesnt smell to bad, its also full. Ive also done a fuel injection about 2000 miles ago.

Please help thank you so much!

Check engine light on? If so, have it scanned and write down the trouble codes.

Yea its on, I checked it once before the tranny started messing up, saying something like my engine is running too cool. but I guess I will have it checked out sometime today or tomorrow.

O.K. I just got back from getting my check engine light checked out. The only thing it says is engine coolant temp sensor. I also had my batt, starter, and altinator checked out and all was perfect. So im stump, what you think it could be?

Also I think you should know that it doesnt do it all the time. but it is doing it at lease once a day at lease. and only does it once then it really dont repeat.
