It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Possible sticking thermostat (probable) but you could have a fan thermostat going bad also if it has an electric fan, next time it starts over heating look under hood and see if the fan on the radiator is spinning, if not it or the thermostat for it could be bad

What could cause frequent overheating and random misfire on diagnostic

Frequent overheating is caused by low fluid level for coolant, coolant fan not working, or stuck closed thermostat.

The random misfire could be caused by a bad sensor like an O2 sensor, for example.

Wish you luck on this repair.

I have a 99 ford ranger 4x4 and its overheating and ive replaced the rad,waterpump, thermo, and hoses and its still overheating but not all the time its random

Hello! The most important question is what type of coolant are you using? There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #01-23-6...It relates to the only coolant that can be used in your Ford...Do not use coolant made with Propylene Glycol...It will damage the cooling system...Only use Ethlene Glycol based coolant...Since you have replaced all major components and still have a problem...I would suggest back flushing the engine block...A back flushing kit can be purchased at most auto part stores...The random nature of the overheating may also be associated with electrolysis...Using a digital volt meter set to read less than 1 volt...Put positive probe into recovery tank and negative probe to ground...Start engine...Any reading over .3 volts is indication of a problem...Electrolysis turns coolant to goop and will not circulate...Send results...Guru...Saailer

Check for plugged exhaust system. If plugged will cause overheating and misfiring of all cylinders.
