First i would check the coolant and make sure it is still good. You can goto any automotive store and get a Antifreeze tester they are about 4-10$usd. If the antifreeze is ok then you need to replace your thermostat. If you need further assistance after doing what i have provided above please let me know. Thanks, Midwest-tek

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph

If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

My car is over heating, also when I turn the heat it blow out cold air. What should I do?

Sounds like the thermostat may be bad, which means the coolant isn't getting into the engine block and heater. Does the heat gauge ever go really high and then drops back to normal quickly? If so, the thermostat is the quick and easy fix.

I replaced the thermostat and water pump and the car still over heats. Another guy told me to check the oil to make sure a head gasket wasn't gone and it was fine. Another guy said something about bleeding...

There are a number of things that one needs to look at. Make and year? Miles on the car? was the water that you drained from the radiator really rusty or clear? If rusty a back flush may ,"may" be needed. When does the car heat up? At idle after driving it...on the road at hwy speeds....does it heat up quickly or take awhile....etc. Does the car have thermostatically controlled fans? If so are they functioning properly. Have you left the radiator cap off the radiator and started the car alowing it to reach operating temp and looking in the radiator to see if the water is flowing? If the car is old and the water was really rusty it may be that the radiator is partially pluged. Hope this helps. Texas Street Rodder

Over heating. no heat from heater

You need to replace the Thermostat and gasket very quickly as you are damaging the engine when it overheats. Your thermostat is not opening at all preventing the coolant from reaching the engine, cooling it off and sending the now heated coolant into the heater core to keep you warm. The shaking may or may not go away once this is fixed.

Good Luck!

chances are it is your heater core , it don't have to leak just get stopped up . it has tiny vanes and the antifreeze has to run through them. I know the your heater hoses outside on the motor are different sizes but switch places with these two hoses connected with heater core it will change the flow direction and chances are unplug it.

Over heating

it can only be two other things, make sure the fan is working and if the fan is working, then you need to change the head gasket.
