SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating
I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.

is it a 4 or a 6 cylinder engine, well you need to take off the fan clutch if it has one if not skip the step; its just 4 screws, then take off the acc belt, then take off the hose that goes from the radiator to the water pump; at the water pump, then remove the screws holding the water pump; make note what screw goes where some screws may be different sizes; in some 4 cyl 2.3L engines the timing belt cover has to be removed to remove the water pump, then remove the water pump, scrap off all gasket residue from the surface of the engine, take automotive silicone gasket maker and apply a small amount to the new water pump and level it out then put the included gasket over the silicone, then let it set for a couple of minutes, apply a bit more of silicone over the gasket and again let it set then replace the water pump, replace the screws and tighten all of them snug then go back and torque them between 20 and 25ft lb, replace the water hose, replace timming belt cover if removed, replace acc belt, and finally replace the fan clutch and your all set i hope you can get the job done
