My 2003 Ford Ranger has about 82000 miles and has stalled out 4 times the past week. Three times in one day, twice while driving and once while trying to start. I can feel the engine start to rumble for a few seconds before it finally shuts off and I have to press the fuel reset switch to get it to start. Anyone have any ideas of what the cause of this issue could be? Any help is greatly appreciated.

A few weeks ago I had my truck in the shop due to an engine miss. They replaced the plugs, wires and fuel filter. The truck ran great for a few days and now it's doing the same thing again. The check engine light had come on before it went to the shop, but has'nt come on this time around. What could be the problem with it? One person told me it could be a bad catalytic converter and another says the EGR Valve could be bad. Any help would be greatly appreciated by me.
