Could the clip that holds it on get that weak over time. I've had the car from day one so I know all that's been done to it. I've hanged the radiator fluid 3 times but never messed with that hose.
Well Hoses don't last forever. With 180k on the dial those things should have been replaced miles ago. The hose may have weaked and with the water pressure simply popped off. I believe 16lbs of pressure is what the system holds. But I would replace all hoses in the car. Heater core as well.
