You are low on coolant that is the most common reason that hose will do that. You likely need to bleed the air out of the cooling system. I also suggest you replace the radiator cap as it may cause this as well, but that is very rare.

2002 pontiac montana overheats

i would 1st check the thermostat, most overheating problems result from the thermostat sticking closed, and not allowing the coolant to circulate, while you are doing this, check the upper and lower radiator and heater hoses, to make sure that they are not collasping, also check the coolant temperature switch. this switch is normally located on the top of the intake manifold, most of the time, not too far from where the top radiator hose is connected. hope that this information has helped you.

Hi i have a 1988 cadilliac seville changed the therstat on it it reads some times 150 to 170 degree but a lot of time it only reads only 120 degree the main top hose is only warm and it idles realy high...

it should go to 195 degrees if new
either the coolant galeries areplugged up somewhere
it can be from the heater core
engine block or heads
a collasped hose will do that also keeping the temperature down
ever a bad seal on the overflow tank or radiatop too

My front brakes lockin up on my 92 eagle talon

The cause is most likely caused by a defective brake hose. The flexible line that runs to the caliper has collasped inside, causing the pressure to remain on the caliper. These hoses have a very small passage and easily collapse over time due to wear. Just a thought.

Check for a collasped hose
A frozen shut thermostat

90 lincoln was running hot 3 yrs ago,and no heat just replaced head gasket,heads pass pressure test,no cracks in heads, head gasket was bad,still no heat,heater hoses hot, pressure test cooling system...

Have you even considered the heater core? Have the heater core checked/replaced. As for the top hose collapsing...that is not good. Have the entire system checked out by a qualified mechanic.
