SOURCE: RADIATOR FAN
If you've got the hydraulic fan, check to see that the solenoid at the power steering pump is plugged in. My 1993 3.0 had this happpen, and that's what was wrong. You have to pull the front passenger side wheel off to access the pump. Just stick your hand up in there and feel around. You'll find it. One way to check is to let the car idle and turn the a/c on full blast. You should hear the fan start to roar after a few seconds. If it doesn't, then check the solenoid wire. Worked for me!

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.

The same thing happened with my 01 cavalier. My dad replaced the thermostat and it did the same thing. Then he discovered that there is something called a temperature control sensor that had to be replaced because when the thermostat froze open, it destroyed the sensor. It was a lot cheaper than any of the other parts and once it was replaced, it worked fine.

You need to unplug the coolant senor that was replaced and see if the problem still exists,if so the wrong sensor was replaced.There is one that runs the cooling fan and one for the temp guage.

I'm not certain if this engine has coolant bleeder valves, but if it does, make sure there aren't any pockets, particularly around the sending unit. Something is fooling the computer into thinking that things are really, really hot.
