Do anyone knows why my 2002 Ford explorer keeps running hot. I changed the thermostat and water pump and it's still running hot.

blocked radiator, blown head gasket, new thermostat in wrong
If the overheating is occurring at standing , low speeds or high rpm low road speed conditions , replace the viscous fan hub as it is not driving the fan properly
If you have electric fans check
bot fuses, engine coolant sensor, relay, fans and wiring

Have you checked the fan? A bad fan either electric or manual with clutch will cause a heating problem.

Will the fan clutch malfunctioning cause the car to act like the thermostat is not opening, we have already replaced the thermostat

Yes, if the fan clutch is bad, the car may overheat, especially when going uphill, check for a replacement or repair the esisting one filling it back with new silicona.

the situation you describe is an air pocket. you need to raise the front of the vehicle turn the heat on full blast. open the radiator cap, while cold of course, and add coolant until you see not more air bubbles coming out of the filler neck.

Nissan 1999 Maxima is over heating

Most likely not. Pulling the thermostat will get you home, but not a great fix. Is it overheating driving down the road or sitting still? If it is overheating driving down the road, look for a clogged radiator or stuck thermostat. If it overheats sitting still, look for your cooling fans not coming on.

Overheating when idleling

Its not impossible for there to be a bad head gasket or leaking. But I agree with you the over heating will be there during driving as well. I would change the fan clutch and replace the thermostat, if the thermostat that was replaced wasn't an oem/delaer thermostat, I would change it. From prior experience with these type of vehicle the most likely cause of overheating thermostat and fan clutch. Aftermarket thermostat just aren't good for this vehicle I have proved it a few times for myself. Take my advise and change the thermostat with an oem one and the fan clutch with an oem. Good Luck. Get in contact with me if you need more help.

If it runs cool when you are moving the fan clutch is probably weak. If it overheats when moving down the road you more than likely have a radiator problem. Make sure the fins on the radiator and clear from debris for max cooling system efficiency.
