I'd start by checking coolant level and making sure there's not a buildup of sludge inside the cooling system. Then I'd check the fan clutch and thermostat.
Are you talking about the upper radiator hose??? If so, reattach it then try to pull it off by hand. If you can do so, replace the hose and the clamp. Otherwise you probably need a new radiator cap.
