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.

Try blowing the radiator fins out (from the inside) with compressed air--bugs and other debris can clog the air flow. Do the radiator fan(s) run when hot? If not, check for blown fuse, seized fan motor(s), bad relay, or bad engine thermal sensor. Is it losing coolant water from somewhere?
