Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
The radiator is not leaking, enough coolant is in it, i checked it frequently and there is no indication that the hose are bad, the temperature gauge keeps moving up and down when i am driving
This is normal. When the gauge moves, it is thermostat opening and closing. Open, the gauge goes down a bit, closed, it goes up.

Don't forget to check the cabling to the dashboard , if the dial is rapidly moving up and down I would suggest , bad signal/sensor , poor grounding , your gauge I'm assuming jumps from C to mid way and back while driving , if it's jumping to H , stop driving as this would not be, no pun intended , cool!!

try to run the water pump without hoses, and add water in the 'in' side, if is powers out the other side, then it's fine. how is your water/coolant mix?

the open pipe that you took the hose off of is the thermostat housing, you will need to remove this to reveal the thermostat, make sure you use a new gasket with sealant when reinstalling thermostat housing to prevent leaks and dont over tighten the bolts,run both bolts down as far as you can before final tightning
