Is the coolant in the reservoir getting hot? Was the thermostat changed or has it been removed completely. Did you use 50/50 mixture in the radiator? Are the radiator hoses getting hot? They should. If no, could be a problem with the thermostat or water pump. Or a blockage in the system.

Did you find the problem? I have a Explorer 06 V8 and it did the same thing after I got a new radiator.

I have a similar situation 06 Ford Explorer overheating new housing and thermostat. Everything was well up until now serously overheating again specifically at stops. Any suggestions comments are appreciated. Thank you.
