This has happened a few times now with the stock radiator when my buddy had the car and then once now with the new koyo radiator i got recently. I did notice a slight bend in the hose considering that the koyo is a bi wider and thicker than the stock radiator so you guys think thats what caused enough pressure to pop that hose off? But why would it pop off on my buddy who previously owned the car as well? Could it be a bad thermostat sticking and causing pressure? Or im really hoping its not head gasket failure.(i read somewhere that could be the case as well) but if that was the case wouldnt i see a mix of oil and coolant?(which i dont just straight green)

Im pretty sure it was nice and tight i used a ratchet to tighten it, mght be a defective clamp too though, nothings hitting it as well. Think imight just but new clamps for it and then ill know for sure theyre good. Lol

Are you having any high temp indications? If temperature is normal it should not be an over-pressure thing.
(Are you sure your temp gauge/light are working?)
