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.

did you run a compression check? if so and its good then you have a blockage in the water jacket
if not then you have a head gasket leaking

Hold throttle open to a normal highway RPM in the driveway and observe rad hoses for collapsing. Do your run up the road & see what rpm your at when gauge starts to move toward hot, then use that rpm, in driveway . You did run that engine for quite a while with rad cap off when you refilled coolant, with heater on correct?
