Running Problems

I have a 00 ranger and i am having a problem with my truck. For the last month or so my truck has been running weird. I changed the camshaft, crankshaft, iac, and mass air sensors, and 2 tuneups. At a light it will act like it is miss fireing a lil like every few sec, like a stumble. Then when i drive it like 20 miles or more, on the way back i will accelerate and it will start stumbling like i let of the gas but i dont, then it will finally shut off and i cant get it started up again so i have to reset the computer. Can any one help????

No, but i squirted water on it andit didnt stall, and would the coil pack get worse if it was bad when the truckheated up, cuz it only gets real bad after a far drive.

I need to figure it out what it is soon because this is driving me nuts. I took it to Roush and they did a test and found nothing besides the p0176 and said it has nothing to do with that and it hsould run fine. I have a star tester and that also isnt finding anything and i cant keep guessin on parts because that equals more $$$

It could be anything. How many miles on it? When was the last time the fuel filter was changed?
