The top radiator hose collapsed and made a popping noise. now the car will not even turn over, the battery is dead, but even when i try to boost it off, it will not turn over. why will it not start?

Usually when the upper hose fails the engine has overheated.
If the engine will not crank it may be locked up. If it cranks but won't start it could have lost compression in the cylinders.

05 ford ranger started knocking then blew of radiator hose now it wont start

The knocking (as opposed to pinging) could indicate lack of oil or a bad oil pump. If it was the lack of oil then that, in turn, could cause overheating and a subsequent blown radiator hose. In addition, depending on how long you ran the engiine while it was knocking, you could have driven off a pistion rod cap while the pistion seized up in the cylinder. If the engine won't crank or cranks with some undesirable metal on metal noise you may have an engine job (or a new short block)in your future. My arm wave analysis may be modified by some additional information.

Overheating after a hose came off

It sounds like you've blown a head gasket. That would explain why the hose blew off in the first place as well as all the other issues since. I'd recommend performing a compression test at this point. Best of luck!

Car overheated and wont start, does crank over, it blew a radiator hose, replaced it, but still wont crank over

Sorry! sounds like this one is too far gone! If it blew the radiator hose off the engine, then the head gaskets or the cylinder head itself has failed. You will quite possibly need a new engine put in your Cavalier.

1999 FORD ESCORT ZX2 radiator hoses swell and burst

you've got a serious overheating issue creating the pressure. Your temp gauge must be reading hot too.
If not, then you have engine compression pressure getting into the cooling system through a blown head gasket.
Replacing the cap will not help.
