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.

SOURCE: Overheating

Is the car actually overheating or are you just getting a red temp symbol on the dash? What does your temp gauge say? If it is indeed overheating and they did replace all the parts you say they did, they probably didn't bleed the cooling system properly. If any air is trapped in the system, it will cause a overheat condition. Take it back and tell them to bleed it right. Make sure they tightened up your radiator overflow/fill bottle cap as well...turn it until it "snaps". Now if the car is not physically overheating, and the temp gauge shows normal with the needle straight up (~190F), but you show a red temp symbol on the dash, your coolant level sensor in the overflow/fill bottle cap could be defective, the harness that plugs into it could be loose and/or your coolant level is too high. Lower the level until it is in the cross-hatch area printed on the bottle and reseat the connector. If it still has the red temp symbol, chances are very good the sensor in the bottle went bad. Mine went bad on my 04 Jetta 2.0 and I got a constant red symbol on the dash. Hope this helps you out.

Check your oil dipstick for coolant, or a mucky substance. Your symptoms sound like a blown head gasket.

Have you shop perform a "leakdown test." You probably have a bad head gasket )or a leak in the gasket).

Connie, Were the radiator,water pump and thermostat replaced to try and fix the over heat issue or as maintenance. Engine overheating can be caused by a lot of things, Leak in cooling system, air in system, bad rad. cap, slipping belt, faulty thermostat or installed upside down, faulty water pump, plugged radiator (inside/outside), collapsing rad hose, faulty cooling fan, leaking head gasket, sludge plugging engine water passages, poorly tuned engine, etc..
Take into a good shop for diagnoses and estimate for repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Sounds like the ac compressor locked up and the belt snapped from rubbing on it. Once the belt snaps, the water pump stops and the engine overhears.

My car keeps overheating..I changed the thermostat but the gauge is still all the way to hot..could it be the water pump?


Probly not. Unless the pump is run by it's own belt which broke. Usually , a pump is good till it starts leaking all over the place.
Please explain overheating problem more. Is it while you are driving , or when you are stoped in trafic. Does it heat up and overheat very quickly after you start the car. Is it really overheating , or is your guage just showing overheat.
