I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix when you do not drive it does not get hot but when you drive it gets hot plus the hose is claping

Replace the collapsed hose. Suction is greater from the water pump when you're driving. This will cause a weak hose to collapse and restrict coolant flow causing the engine to run hot. HTH. -Jim
