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.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge 1500 Changed radiator, thermostat, and hoses. No heat

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

If you have a viscous fan hub then have it replaced as it is not moving the air through the radiator. Check how you placed the thermostat in the system as the bulb bit faces into the head or block so that it can sense the rising water temperature and open as required.. With not water moving through the hose I suspect that may be your problem

You've got air in the coolant passages in the engine.
IF the engine side of the top radiator hose is accessible remove it and the thermostat. Don't have the radiator cap on. The coolant may seek its own level and fill the engine block.
Re-connect every thing and top off the radiator.
Hopefully you haven't already fried the engine.

How to Bleed Air Out of Your Cars Cooling System

92' Ford Explorer is running hot. Changed the thermostat, water-pump and flushed out cooling system. The coolant is boiling in the radiator, and overflowing out of the coolant reservoir.

sounds like a blockage like a dodgy thermostat, id test it by boiling a jug and throwing your new thermostat in the boiling water and see if it opens, other than that you've pretty much done it all so id be looking at a blown head gasket. good luck :)

What could be causing my 2000 ford taurus to run hot

The most common problems are low coolant level, stuck thermostat, fans not working and plugged radiator. If your coolant level is good and the fan turns on when the engine gets hot, then change the thermostat and flush the radiator at the same time because the thermostat needs to come out to do a proper flush. Hope this helps.

if running hot at idle could be water pump not circulating enough try revving engine some and see if temp comes down. also check your fan clutch.
