Jeep all of a sudden started running hot, had a pin hole leak from the radiator hose, I fixed it, but the valves still tap as if it's running hot. Could that be a caused by my thermostat going out?

No. How hot did you get the car? The overheating could have caused damage

Valves tapping could also be a valve lash issue. Did you change the oil after the overheating issue?
