Question about Cars & Trucks
It depends on the quality of the part installed, cheap does not last long. Next you want to blow out the Radiator and Inter-Cooler to make sure you have good air flow to cool it.

Well if the blower resistor was replaced, it was probably because the blower was drawing too much power so you probably burnt it again and so the resistor will need to replaced and the blower should be replaced as well to help prevent further problems. There is a slight chance that it is a problem with the wiring but most of the time the blower is needing replacement since the resistor is going bad. Usually the blower will work on high still if the resistor burns out. If you are a do it yourself person, then I would go that route and buy the parts from Ford and maybe get a Haynes or Chilton manual for help with the installation and further problems that you may have.
let me know if you have any other questions

Is your vehicle low on water constantly? If so you may have a bad heater core and it is leaking water into the passenger compartment. Feel around on the lower right side of the floorboard and see if it is wet. If it is then your heater core is leaking water and antifreeze into you care. Another way to determine this is if you windshiled focs bad on defrost (antifreeze on the windshield) and you can seem to clear the fog. If this is the problem then you can try some alumna seal that you pur into the raidator and this may help for a short tiem, but ultimately you will have to replace the heater core.
If there is no water on the floorboard I would pull the radiator cap while it is running and have someone rev up the engine, if you have a blown head gasket then you should see bubbles in the water in the radiator when you rev it (sign of combustion leakage into the coolant system). You can also buy a kit from NAPA that samples the water in your radiator to tell you if you have combustion in the coolant system. While you have the radiator cap open see if they water is flowing well in the radiator (it could be clogged). I would also make sure your colling fans are coming on when the vehicle gets hot.
I would replace the radiator cap as well, if the cap is bad this will cause your vehicle to overheat because the system isn't pressurized and unpressurized water boils way sooner than pressurized water causing overheating.

most likely,you only need to replace the thermostat, but, while engines running,look to see if the engine cooling fan is coming on when it's 3/4 way up. your thermostat may be sticking,or a fan going bad.you need to check visually to insure that your cooling fans coming on during the temp.rise. if the fans coming on, then you know for sure that the thermostats sticking. thank you for choosing fixya.com

unfortunately these engines are known for this condition and for head gasket failure.with engine cold pressurize cooling system with spark plugs removed.look down into holes with flashlight after about ten minutes.....im betting youll see a puddle of coolant on piston...usually its cyl# 2 or 3.i cant think of any other possibility for system repeatedly airlocking other than a head gasket.good news they are probably one of the easier ones to replace.
