My car has an automatic transmission.

If your Ranger has the 4 cylinder motor then you most likely broke the timing belt in the engine. Open the oil cap and have someone one turn over engine and see if you see the camshaft turning. It is not turning the the timing belt broke. Have the timing belt replaced.
