the best thing to get is the Haynes manual for your car at advanced auto or autozone or somewhere like that and the book will tell you how to take everything apart and put it back. i think the manual is about $16.00

I had the same overheating problem in my jeep ! My problem was finaly found out to be the clutch in my fan its a different kind of clutch system it work as this. When your jeep gets warmer the tighter your fan clutch gets .While cool your fan moves slowly. now to test your clutch just warm up your jeep and rev it up a bit if your fan dose not pick up speed then it is sliping.What will come out of this is that you fan will the seez and run full all the time. if you jeep dose not overheat wile moving then it is not your thermo stat period.

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 may want to try checking the fans. I have a 95 ss with the same problem. If you disconnect the MAF and then start the vehicle the electric fans will come on. Try driving it like that. That will atleast narrow down your search. If that makes it run cooler then its most likely a problem with the fans. Either a relay or fan switch. Blown head gaskets will usually result in the coolant and oil mixing. Check your fluids for signs of that. I have also read that the radiator cap not sealing properly can cause the coolant system to lose pressure. This reduces the systems ability to circulate the coolant causing it to run hotter. Thats an easy fix. I have not fixed mine yet. I just havent had time. That should be a good place to start. As far as getting a new engine or head gasket they are both really expensive fixes so try any other way u can to fix it first. Hope this helps.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.
