97 ford ranger 4.0L 6 cyl. Trying to diagnose coolant
problem. Only drove it a short distance and did not notice if it ran hot but, when I shut it down, the coolant was backing up out of the radiator cap. I pulled the radiator cap off and watched. Coolant was not circulating. The thermostat
was replaced about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago. Coolant was not leaking anywhere near the water pump

JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
