Is the engine actually overheating?I could have just been a old hose that got weak over time?

The fact that it is overheating is a problem. You have a problem that needs to be resolved and from this hot condition, the pressure rises and the hoses cannot take it. You may have blown a head gasket and compression in the cooling system may be expanding the hoses.

Ok the temprature gauge isnt workin but when it gets hot the water boils in the overflow also

I checked da oil and there is no water mixing with the oil but I know that still doesnt mean the head gasket isnt blown.
