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.

You have combustion gases getting into the cooling system, that much is sure, if u didn't have the headed for poss warp-age then a new head gasket will leak, these heads warp really bad, we always have them trued up or we won't guarantee the job.

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.

If the engine is still cold and doing this your getting combution in the cooling system. If you have a leaking head gasket or cracked head or cylinder block when that cylinder comes up on compression stroke the compression gets pushed into the cooling system. By far the most common to cause this is a blown head gasket.
