Thanks for the input zaria, That made alot of sense.I am in the process of replacing the hose.
I brought the car by a electrician and tested fan,relays and a heater coil that is located on the radiator that controls when the fans come in and all passed so im looking at the other scenarios.
Purchased new hose just need the time to go below the car and change.
When the car overheated i also got a cylinder head temperature sensor error code, but the code was cleared and didnt come back up so i guess if its not the hose im hoping its the sensor.As this sensor monitors the engine temperature and relates it the the ecu.. Just starting from the simplest of things and working my way up
Found some infor that will assist me with whats going on, from the research i did i can go into the instrument cluster and monitor the temp and when it reaches 108-110 the fan is suppose to kick in on the first stage. So im making headway.
Will keep the forum updated
I realise the ford forum isnt as active as the other forums where ppl pass their knowledge around so im posting this for future reference.

As most of you know, you can enter a test mode on the instrument cluster but only a few of the functions have been figured out, untill now. Here is a list of all the functions:
Insert Key (do not turn it)
2) Press and hold the Trip-Meter Reset Button
3) While holding the reset button, start your car and continue holding the button.
4) Within 10 seconds, the display should change to "test" (written in a silly LCD font) and the needles will go nuts. No biggie. Release the Button.
5) Pressing the button will now cycle through some 15 different modes.
1 Gauge Sweep All gauges carry-out sweep
2 LCD Test Makes all the LCDs light up
3 Bulb Test Lights all functioning cluster bulbs
4 Rom Level Displays the instrument cluster ROM revision level
5 NVM Level Displays the instrument clister NVM revision level
6 DTC Diagnostic trouble codes
7 Road speed MPH
8 Road Speed Kmph
10 Fuel Volume
11 Engine coolant temperature
12 battery voltage
13 ABS Fail Displays ABS RAW input (H=over-charging or battery L=Ground)
14 Electronic brake distrubution failure ^
15 Illumination H=on L=off
16 Crank sense H=ignition L=ground or over-charging
