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.

Radiator hose collaspe over night becasue air gets in the hose. i bought a new cap from autozone but still same problem

Replace the hose and make sure system is fiull, make sure overfill container is full and see if it does it after that, the reason it is doing that is that its trying to pull coolant in from the resivior or hose is weak, check the hose for the overflow i will bet its plugged and no allowing the flow of coolant from resivor ,check that hose and also make sure the container is clean.good day.

Engine overheats and I've changed the water pump already along with the thermostat. What could be the problem?

many things can cause an engine to over heat
Look for any collasped water coolant hose. That will cause overheating'
If the inside of the engines oil cap looks to have a creamy filling in it that will be from coolant mixing with the engine oil. Head gasket leak and can cause overheating
A clogged up heater core or radiator can cause overheating
A loose or worn seal on the radiator fill cap can cause overheating as well

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.
