Thermostat and sensor changed radiator hose was collapsed bought a new hose but haven’t tested it what could be the next step if that doesn’t work it runs hot after a 5 minute drive around the corner

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Radiator hose collapse is from a leaking intake manifold gasket or radiator cap is bad and not letting the system draw fluid from overflow. Replace the cap and pressure test system to see if it has a leak in the intake manifold.
