My temperature gauge would rise to the middle and then after a few minutes it would rise to rise and the oil light would come one. I rev the motor then drop it back into gear and the gauge goes back to normal. I thought it was the thermostat so replaced it. Now the temperature gauge shows that its overheating after a few miles and the truck overheats. Ford said that it was a head gasket, but I not leaking any coolant. I read that it might be the fan might not be working but I checked when the truck is overheating and the fan is working fine. What else could it be? I thought maybe the water pump?
have the same problem?

When does it happen, on the highway or intown driving? Also, have you replaced the thermostat, flushed the cooling system?
Let me know.
PS: A bad head gasket could cause this problem.
