My 4.0 explorer is over heating. A shop replaced the water pump and thermostat. Still overheating. Cap and both hoses are cold. Fan is working, heater blower is working. Water in radiator is not hot.

Something is plugging it, if both hose of the cooling system is cold to touch something going on with the water pump. Or something is plugging the cooling system, when you feel the radiator hose make a comparison to it with the heater hoses

The heater hoses are warm. The radiator hoses are both cold.

The waterpump flow has to be tested, another easier way is remove the thermostat, and if it overheats quickly, and both radiator hose are cold to touch, you have a blockage in the hoses or the waterpump has issues
