Why is my 2002 jeep liberty over heating

First make sure the coolant level is full. This should be done with while the engine is cold.

If it's full than its most likely a bad thermostat, but could also be a bad water pump, or a bad electric fan ( don't remember off hand if yours has an electric or mechanical fan). If the water pump was bad you would not get heat out of the vents. If there is heat out the vents than the thermostat would be the most likely fix.

No heat occasionally unless i push the excelerator also no overflow hose could it be the thermostat or clogged heater core its a 98 mustang

Yeah, could just be the thermostat. Highly doubtful if heater core is clogged because the heater core would go bad before it clogged. When you push accelerator, that is heating the engine more, therefore circulating more water, and the water is being heated more, and that will push open a thermostat that is going bad. So start there.

From the last portion about your drving conditions, it is normal gets hot, especially going up hills with the A/C on. Sometime the water pumps start to weaken but also a clogged radiator, slowing the flow of cooled coolant through your motor or even through the radiator....check to be sure you have the proper level of coolant also.
