Since you mention flushing the system, you could have big air pocket in the cooling system. Each time you run it, let it cool down then check the level in the radiator, not just the overflow tank. Also the thermostat could be in backward, or a faulty one (even though it's new) Never open a radiator cap if it is HOT! Those would be the first two places to look.

On a 2000 Ford Ranger , 4.0 liter EFI , V6 engine : Follow the top radiator hose from the radiator , it connects to a metal pipe which is part of the engine cooling thermostat housing The engine cooling thermostat is inside the housing that is bolted to the front of the engine

some cooling systems, you can check by removing the radiator cap when the water is cool. Then crank the vehicle and let it run until it reaches operating temp. If the water reaches or exceeds operating temp with no flow seen inside of the radiator, it could possible mean that your cooling system is clogged. Also a good indication is if there is rust deposits around the filler neck on the radiator.

till the radiator and the block is full and the cooling system is at operating temp

Allow engine to warm fully to operating temperature without the radiator cap on. Once thermostat opens fully the cooling system will be at full flow forcing any air out through the radiator.

Not enough coolant in the cooling system - Improper ratio of coolant to water in the system - Improper or failing radiator pressure cap - Cooling system water pump may be failing - Radiator fins may be dirty or blocked. - radiator cooling fans are not operating correctly - cooling system is dirty and may need flushing.

Dirty or plugged radiator Water pump Defective radiator cap Thermostat Cooling fan not operating hoses collapsing

Radiator plugged or restricted? Cooling system airbound? Water pump not circulating coolant? Radiator cap defective? Radiator hoses collapsing under pressure? Defective gauge/cooling temperature sensor?

Low coolant level? Cooling system air bound? Water pump not circulating coolant? Cooling fan not operating? Radiator plugged or restricted?

Type your answer here... IF WE CHANGED ONLY COOLING FAN THEN IT WILL BE OVERHEAT BECAUSE WE DON'T CHANGE OR FLUSHING OF RADIATOR. WE CAN REMOVE THERMOSTAT VALVE ALSO MAY BE HOSE PIPE WILL BE BEND

It depends on what kind of car and what year. if it has cooling fans, they can be not operating.

The radiator fan will start to work once your engine reaches a certain operating temperature.

Rust and sediment can accumulate in the cooling system. Flushing the radiator helps keep the cooling system clean.

The radiator cap controls cooling system pressure.The radiator cap controls cooling system pressure.

The radiator is part if the cooling system.

Temp sensor not working, cooling fan not working, blown head gasket.

there are two metal looking lines that screw into the radiator that is the cooling side

There could be many reasons for this, thermostat bad or weak, cooling fluid low, weak water pump, fan not operating properly, radiator hose weak, plugged radiator.

Low coolant? Thermostat not opening? System airbound? Radiator plugged or flow restricted? Defective radiator cap? Water pump not operating? Clutch or cooling fan not working?

Radiator have metal fins which increases total surface area of the metal body which cooling effect and hence increase the efficiency to maximum cooling effect.

The radiator may be plugged up. There are products available to help clean the cooling system, and the cooling system should be backflushed after using them.

Many things can cause an engine to run hot, make sure that the cooling system is full, that there are no leaks, make sure the cooling fan is operating properly, make sure that the there is nothing blocking air circulation thru the radiator fins, check for corrosion inside the radiator causing blockage and reduced cooling.

The radiator is located in front the engine cooling fan and shroud, at the front of the motor. _____________chassis_________________ _____________________________________ Fire wall motor ~cooling fan~ radiator ________________________________________ chassis
