WELL IT COULD BE A LOT OF THINGS SO LETS START WITH.
Welsh plugs leaking/Water pump leaking /water pump impella worn /Fan belt sliping/Block and Head full of rust {if only water being used instead of coolant} Thermostat needs replacing with the correct one for the temp in your area, Timing to far retarded,Air intake bunged up or restricted by faulty airpipes sucking in when over 3000 rpm,Bottom or top hose sucking in when the same about 3000 rpms,also check the oil as this cam also cause the temp to rise as the correct oil and air flow under car will also cause the same.AND now the big things.
HEAD gasket blown either across the cylinders {running rough}or across to a head bolt or to the push rod,s ,or piston rings worn due to oil burning,.
There are other things also but these are the first lot to check.
Have a goodday and let me know how you get on .

Hi, It says in your question that you have a 1995? Falcon Wagon. I assume you mean something like a 1965. I used to drive one from time to time when I was young and I loved it.
Anyway "Still Heats up".
My automatic response to that would be
1 Replace the thermostat as that is the very least expensive job and should definitely be kept up with. When a thermostat sticks, you get overheating.
2 Then I would back-flush the system to remove any rust in the block. Prestone makes a good kit to install, if you haven't done it already. On an Iron Block engine, you back flush the rust out of the engine till the water goes clear. I've put these kits into every vehicle I've owned since the time of your Falcon.
. After that, Would be to replace or rebuild the water pump. If it very old. The impeller, which may be made of metal may have deteriorated, rusted or simply wore away.
I hope this helps. Take care of that honey of a car.
Happy New Year,
Mark
P.S. Any questions you have, I would be more than happy to help on.

Will a auto transmission cooler from a ED falcon fit an EF falcon


If it is in the radiator it should as the fittings are the only problem you are likely to encounter. If you are wondering if the cooling capability is affected consider this . Hot tranny oil has to be cooled in the radiator water and this heat makes the radiaror work hard.Why don"t you consider a external cooler. They keep the oil cooler as they are are running in the outside air. Ie air temp 30 deg C oil temp 150c+ water temp 85degC oil temp 150c. You can see that the tranny oil looses more heat and it will not overload the radiator capability
