First I would like to emphasize how dangerous a situation it is when a hose is hot enough to swell until it comes off. Do NOT open the hood of the vehicle unless you know it is cold.
If the hose is slipping off there is more than likely a blockage in your cooling system.
Does it overheat before the hose pops off?
There is sign on the dashboard that the car is overheating. However, the hose can be very hot.
Ok, a little different, but still dangerous. What is the condition of the clamp? Has the ridge on the radiator inlet been worn down or broken?
