98 jeep cherokee 4.0l

I replaced the thermostat and lower radiator hose but it is now leaking from behind the lower hose and is overheating and I have no heat any suggestions?
Also when i first start it and I drive it it will die and I have to wait a couple of minutes before it turns over and then I have to put foot to the floor to get it to start!
Thank You

Did you close the drain cock? Did you put the hose clamps back on? Did you use a new gasket? Did you remove the old gasket? Did you use a sealant on the gasket? Did you accidentally disconnect a vaccum hose?

sounds like it is flooding out. make sure thermos is in right as baxler said and make sure your coolant temp sensor connector is on well. any codes?
