    Wanted to ask if anyone might know the answer to overheating problem on my 93 Ford Ranger 3.0l. I have just replaced both heads, due to cracks around valves, thermostat, and installed a new water pump. Ran the truck and it ran hot again so I felt the hose and both were hot. Radiator was cold. Thought it was stopped up so replaced it with new one and flushed block. Clutch fan appears to be operating correctly. I have pressure tested and found no leaks or variating needle on guage. All cylinders compression check close to each other. Will get hot and cool if you rev it up sometimes. Does not cool down any if thrown in neutral and coasting a couple miles downhill.
    Tired and need something else to look at. Any Answers???

    Have you checked the AC condenser (if equipped) and anything else in front of the radiator for stuff blocking air flow?
