Bottom rad hose popped off oil/coolant

I made a short trip and everything is running great! I parked it for the night and the next morning the bottom radiator hose had blown off and spewed a mixture of coolant and oil on the ground. Upon further inspection, I noticed the degas bottle had the same mixture. I pulled the oil cooler to inspect and saw clean coolant in the oil cooler. Now I'm not sure if that was the leak. The oil is very clean( no coolant) so my question is, is there another place the oil could get introduced into the coolant?

I just bought the truck and notice the radiator looked new. How can you tell if the oil is engine or tranny. Isn't trans fluid red? This stuff was black.

Check your trans fluid for color and/or coolant contamination. You could have a previous failue that has been repaired, but the oily funk not cleaned out.

Checked the trans fluid, very clean, no coolant. I suppose I'll just throw it back together, flush the crap out of the cooling system and let ur rip! Unless anybody thinks there may be just that one little thing I might need to check while in in it this far.

Once you are sure you have all the oil out of it, look into replacing all the rubber coolant hoses.

I want to know why the bottom hose blew off

I would check and make sure the cap is good

if you did have more that 18 psi( bad head gaskets ) and the cap didn't release pressure it's going to want out pretty bad

Perhaps bad clamp with a recent radiator replacement? Maybe the oil lubed it up good? Maybe a combination of the two? Maybe not?
