2001 RANGER,ROUGH RUNNING SETTING

I have a 2001, 4 door, small 6 cylinder, 84,000 miles.
The truck has been running good until this morning. I started it and let it run, at idle, for about 15 minutes to let the heater warm up. It was cold and my wife and i had to go to out.
As we got in i revved the engine....at 3000 rpm it bogged down and wouldnot run any faster.
Acted like it was running out of fuel. It had plenty! We went in the car.
When i got home it was the same thing..about 3000 rpm it missed, run rough> It did this in park and nuteral. I desided to drive it and it ran like nothing was wrong. In drive it ran normal...kick down to passing gear and the rpm hit 5000 and never missed a lick. When i got home iit did the same thing...ran rough and not over 3000.
Now, men tell me what is wrong with the ranger and what will it take to repair it. I know tis is a crazy situation and I HAVE NO IDEAL.

Ken.

Well firstly you shouldn't rev your engine if you're letting it warm up. All you're doing is putting more stress on the engine and you aren't heating it up any faster. You want it to warm up faster, let it idle for a couple minute then drive it for 5 minutes. It'll be nice and warm.

And like the first guy replied you hit your rev limiter and its a fuel cut off. My old 240sx and crapalier did the same thing at 180km/h.
