Did you check to make sure everything is plugged in like for instance the tps(throttle position sensor)? did you plug the temp sensor(it's on the intake near the thermostat housing)?did you somehow disconnect a vaccum hose to the intake(check the EGR valve)? check to make sure all your plug wires are on tight. keep me posted

How to install a thermostat in a ford ranger 4.0L engine?


Its easy follow the top radiator hose back to the engjne to the goose neck the t.stat is under this part Drain some antifreeze from radiator you don;t have to drain itall out Remove clamp from hose to goose neck Remove bolts holding neck on you will lose a little antifreeze in the prosses Claen all old gasket meterial off bolth sides this is important it must be clean Remove old t.stat check the tempature stamped on t.stat replace with the same or similar temp you don;t change this to much Install new t.stat and gasket you can use a sealer it won;t hurt Install goose neck but don;t over tighten you can crack the neck 10 to 12 ft lbs is all you need BUT THE T.STAT IS NOT USELY NOT THE PROBLEM WITH COOLING SYSTEMS you can try back flushing the system and putting new antifreeze first this may solve your over heating problem
