Why does my 1988 ford ranger f-150 over heat


Thermostat is stuck or the radiator or heater core is blocked up.

98 ford ranger no heat have changed thermostat water pump heater control valve


Maybe the heater core is plugged or you haven't bled it properly?
If the heater hose returning from the core to the water pump is NOT hot, while the hose going to the heater core from the thermostat area IS hot, then the heater core is plugged probably.
You need to remove the heater hose while cool,from the thermostat area and remove the hose from the water pump area (that's the outlet of the flow thru heater core) AND THEN take a garden hose with p-is-tol grip type sprayer,and blow water back thru the outlet hose out the inlet hose. This will blow any bad plugging material out the way it got in.
Don't apply too much pressure if it is plugged bad. The heater core isn't made to stand 50lbs. water pressure. don-ohio (:^)

I just replace the thermostat, and water pump flush the system in my 1994 ford ranger and i have no heat when idling after a hour but when im driving the heat blows out like crazy


Sounds like you have a build up in the heater line,or heater core, it happens some times if you put stop leak in as a quick fix. You need to buy a good radiator flush and follow the instructions with your heater left on. You might have to do it more than once. Another problem occurs when you mix the green and pink antifreeze. that will turn to jel and clog everything.

Lower radiator hose stays cold after running for hours


could be you fitted the thermostat in the wrong way around ,or the plastic impeller on the water pump with a steel drive shaft has failed they end up with the drive shaft spinning but the impeller is not turning ,go for the thermostat first though .

How to change my engine coolant in a 1992 ford ranger-v6 3.0 engine, with what kind of coolant and how much of it


Hello again Vicki, you can read my first post to you on type. Now for where and how. Put suitable container under radiator drain valve. Start to drain old antifreeze, you can also loosen radiator cap for faster drain, but make sure antifreeze doesn't start to spill all over your driveway or garage floor. When radiator and engine are mostly drained, I would recommend to change the thermostat. Follow the top radiator hose down to the engine. This is where you'll find the thermostat. Remove the attaching bolts and remove thermostat.If you wish to flush your engine,you can put water down the thermostat hole as well as the radiator cap hole, or you can do a fancy flush. Shut drain below, reinstall thermostat housing without thermostat, fill radiator with fancy flush cleaning solution and water replace radiator cap ,run for time stated on can of flush. Now you go back to where I began and start the draining again. Dispose off antifreeze correctly it is dangerous to animals if they ingest. Close drain,and fill engine with antifreeze thru thermostat housing, when almost to top install new thermostat and gasket. fill radiator almost to top, start engine, open inside heater and let engine warm to operating temperature. At this time the antifreeze level will drop, because thermostat will open, and you can fill some more .This should eliminate any possible air bubbles. Fill your coolant tank. I would like to know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

Keep seeing antifreeze under my truck after a 20 mile drive


You say I "keep seeing antifreeze under my..."
I'm going to guess you are seeing it under your truck. If that's the case, look at th ebottom of the water pump. There is a "weep hole" that starts to leak when your water pump is failing.

The thermostat is not the problem UNLESS you don't have the casting it sits in tightened securely.
