Over heating

Is there too much pressure building up in cooling system that's causing the hose to pop off like from combustion going in to coolant? Maybe you can do a block test to check for combustion gases in coolant.

From my experience, when water pump goes you usually have water leaking from around pump shaft because usually it's the bearing that fail causing it to also leak. Can you see water circulating with the radiator cap off? Also you wouldn't have been able to bleed air out if water pump was bad when u replaced thermostat.

Coolant builds pressure the hotter it gets so a water pump not working could build the pressure enough to pop the radiator hose off. Sounds like its going to be fun to pinpoint this one. Good luck to you hope you find it soon..

I had the same issue a couple of weeks ago. Had it towed to shop and they just put the hose back on and bled coolant system. Haven't had any more issues. I'll find out this week since temp will be 95 or above here in KC this week.
