If you drained your coolant when you replaced your t-stat i would say you have air in your system at your heater core causing a pressur lock. Pull one of the lines off that goes from your heater core to the engine and bleed out the air. You may have to do both lines depending on the direction of flow thru your engine.

Why is my 98 ford ranger blow super hot heat out of the vents when the heat is turned of also its overheating why?

Two different issues. The vents and hot air is caused my a cold air mixture door motor gone bad, it's very common. Replace the blend door motor to fix that issue. Overheating could be caused by many things including non working coolant fan, bad t-stat, bad water pump, low or leaking coolant or excessive buildup in coolant system.

I just reapir the overheating problem on my 2001 chevy silverado 5.3 2wd. I am still is full of coolant...reservour is still at the fill line with GM dexcool coolant. The problem to begin...

If it overheated i would replace the thermostant and gasket, also make sure its full of coolant, after replacing the thermostat you may have air in system so let it run until stat opens it may boil over a little until stat opens then it will **** coolant into block when that happens fill with coolant, you will need to let it idle for a while before new stat opens, hope this helps, good luck, i think the stat went bad the first time it overheated.

Replaced t-stat and water pump and sill no heat at idle ????

Do you have heat while driving? If you do, it sounds like air is in the system. 1st check the coolant level to make sure it's correct, as low level will cause no heat at idle, and eventually no heat at all along w/ engine overheating.

Put in a t-stat. No thermostat can act like a bad thermostat, causing over heating, i too have a 94, it was clacking eradically, turns out it was the t-stat opening and closing about 60 times a minute, so i took it out, it got hot, put a new one in, and no more issues.
