Metal Coolant Tube

I blew a metal coolant tube off the front of the engine today. It is below the EGR cooler and loops up into a rubber hose. The tube has an o-ring seal where it goes into the block. It also has a flange with a hole in one side that I am assuming a bolt goes through to secure it to the block. There wasn't a bolt here (obviously because it blew out). Does anyone know if it is suppose to have a bolt to secure it? I find it hard to believe that it would only be an o-ring pressure fit into the block. Lost all of the coolant before I could get it off the road (was towing my 5er). Second trip to the dealer, first @ 700 miles for an oil leak and now @ 3011 with this. My 6.0 made it to 15k before it went on a roll back. I'm hoping the gremlins are out of it now.

Yes there is a bolt that holds it in place. Has anyone taken the cab off yet? The hose goes to your EGR cooler and shouldn't have been messed with unless the coolers came off.

John,

Thank you for the reply. The cab has not been off of it. The oil leak was the grommet around the back right hand side glow plug wires. I guess I'm lucky it made it 3K before letting go, it didn't make sense that there was not a bolt holding it in place. I'm figuring on changing the oil since it got hot (changed at 2K), any other suggestions?
