If it gets hot when sitting still only, then either the cooling system has an air pocket in it or the water pump may be deteriorated and not moving the water.

Does the cooling fan work?

Re: Overheating problems 93 ford ranger

I bet you just need a new fan clutch for the fan behind the radiator. I had this same problem once changed everything, thermistat, coolant, and it just turned out to be a bad fan clutch. I changed it in 2005 and the truck was a 1989. Could be an Air pocket as well, but I bet it is a fan clutch, because it cools when you are moving doesn't when sitting.
