Yessir, Open the hood and find your heater hoses when hot grab both of them while engine is running, you should feel heat like REAL hot on one or both of them... If it is on just one you have a restriction in the heater core. If they are both hot my bet is an air bubble in the heater core. You can park it uphill and open the radiator cap SLOWLY with a towel this will burp air that has made it to your radiator. OR you can turn off the engine let it cool and pull off the UPPER hose....Hold it higher than your radiator and then have some help and fill the tube with water this will force air into the tube from your heater core.

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.

if u can gain access to the ignition switch wiring use a testlight and probe each wire while turning the ignition at start position.one of these wires shld have power during starting position and release it again to confirm.this wire goes directly to the trasmission multi lever position swicht (mlp).this MLP is mounted just outside the transmission shifting lever ganged together.Trace the corresponding return wire using the testlight. You may need someone to help you do the job.The return wire usually go to a relay on your fuse box on the engine compartment.Then from relay to the starter.

you need to change the oil every 3 thousand miles and stay on top of your automatic transmission fluid. Keep the radiator full and make sure you are protected from freezing. Keep terminals clean on battery brushing away any trace of debris. As for the problem, perhaps your best bet would to be to carry a few spare flywheels in your trunk just in case a crack pops up again in one of them.
