Im not too sure about the ranger but my grand am.. had 3 coils and they sat on a module ... well from time to time that module would wear out causing the coils to act up. So being even if you replaced your coil it might not be that at all. But the grand am is a distributorless ignition system and controlled purely by the computer so it could adjust timing as you drove so check that if you have one.
