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.

Alway pick the thermostat with "fail-safe" relief. Look for a float like pressure relief port.

The low tech method to prevent trap air pocket is to drive the car onto an oil ramp (or hill) then fill coolant slowly.

It is possible that the pump failed because of an overheating problem. Make sure the fans run by turning on the air conditioning. They should operate as soon as it is turned on. Bad fans are a common problem. The pump should not have been leaking after replacement though. Make sure you have no leaks first and foremost. Then make sure the fans work. There is also a fan control module located in the area under the battery, but it is difficult to properly diagnose. If the fans do not turn on with the a/c, you can jump the wires at the thermo switch. One should be power, and when you jump to one wire they should go to low speed, the other high.
If you like you can ask more questions directly, I was a VW master tech from 2000 to 2008.

I had the water pump replaced. Is there a relay or a valve that controls the heater, or would a thermostat control it???

i didn't see you last posting about your water pump but theres is a tiny radiator called a heater core. it has the same hot water running through it as your big radiator and engine when you turn your thermostat to hot and kick on the fan the fan blows through the heater core and wallaa you have heat you probably need a thermostat.if you have no heat and it is overheating hear and there that's probably what you need.make sure you see if you filled the radiator up all the way when you changed the water pump.

when you replaced your water pump you drained all your coolant now to top it off leave the cover off your tank cause as your thermostat opens it will allow more water to enter your block. keep topping it off till it doesnt drain into your block anymore. this will be a while since when you add water it cools your thermostat and closes and will reopen when reaches temp.

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.
