Another one bites the dust. Hose decided to give way on motorway. Before I knew it had even happened car started misfiring and gauge hit the roof. Misfire was from the water firing out the hose straight onto the distributor.

@vanzep has had problems with this hose to so I'd suggest having a look or replacing.

At the very least it's going to need the head gasket replaced.
