Q: Taurus overheating on 1998 Ford Taurus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I recently replaced the thermostat and the heater core in the 98 Taurus. However, it overheats to the point that water starts boiling out of the reservoir. What are your thoughts on what might be going on? The heat gauge shows the coolant temp to be normal.

This may be a blown headgasket. I would get this checked to see if this is the problem, have a shop check for signs of hydrocarbons in the cooling system.
