    Was it out of coolant? Did you have any indication the engine was getting HOT? Maybe a gauge or a light warning you that something wasn't right? What happened to the orignial hose, did it blow out, leak or was it replaced as P.M.? Need more info.

    the light came on an I open the hood and found coolant over the engine. towed to dealer, pick it up 2 days later, drove home and on my way back to town, all the lights came on, oil, then coolant, I pull over, tow it again, and oil was in the radiator. remove it from the dealer, had the coolant reservoir replaced and the oil back in the radiator, engine blow head gasket.. tech says replace engine
