Question about Ford E-150
There could be a bunch of stuff going on. First I would take off the radiator cap or the overflow cap from the plastic tank, as most newer cars don't have radiator caps any longer and everything is filled via the overflow bottle. Drive the car until it gets to running temp. Then keep going and see if it overheats. If it does you have a bad radiator that is not holding pressure and U will have to replace that also. Are U sure the stat is working? tap on stat housing gently with a small hammer this sometimes frees them up. Even a new stat could get stuck. Did you put clean antifreeze in? At a 50%/50% mix. If not this could also cause a car to overheat or ran cold. You can do worse damage to your system by using straight antifreeze, that is why the bottle always tells you to mix as well as your owners manual.
