What are some reason the top radiator hose my burst

Asked by Oct 02, 2015 at 12:48 PM about the 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my car has been having alot of problems
recently I drove it about 5 miles to the gym
n it was fine but they drive back j started to
notice the temperature increase so I pulled
over turned off my car and waited after
about 5 mins I drove it began to shake and
lose power where it eventually just stopped
I restarted it jus to get it to the house  the
car then began to jerk as I approached 20
mph so again I pulled over turned the car off
and waited about 5 min. I accelerated really
slow and the car drove fine the heat was
back down to normal (on the temp gauge)
and about 3 mins after that I heard a loud
pop and seen fluid fly up from my engine I
drove about 200-300 ft since I was basically
home when I popped the hood there was
alot of smoke and I noticed the radiator
hose was jacked up does anyone know
what went wrong with the car and if it has
anything to do with a bad O2 sensor

You could have a blockage in the radiator, or water pump the vanes can be corroded and are not producing enough flow thru the system... ........
