I have a 1986 ford ranger 4X4 2.9 EFI manual transmission. Yesterday I was driving it and it suddenly began sputtering as if it were running out of gas (tank was completely full). I revved it and it revived only to leave me stranded on the road ten minutes later - again with the same symptoms. I tried to restart it and it would crank but not turn on. I waited about 10 minutes, turned it on and started up right away and did not have any more problems the rest of the way home. What would be the cause of something like this? Help!

i had the clutch replaced two days prior to this (just in case its pertinent).

thanks
