You have a blockage between the upper radiator hose that's getting hot and the bottom hose that's not. That's a clogged radiator.

Edit....I flushed the radiator and it's still running hot could it be the clutch fan... radiator ca...or maybe just the sensor

A flush doesn't always clear out a radiator; especially one that's seventeen years old. If the cooling fan is not running properly without the AC on, this could be a factor, but wouldn't cause the bottom hose to remain unheated.
