Question about Cars & Trucks
probably was an old hose ready to burst from the pressure in the cooling system
a simple check is to look at the hoses ( all the hoses) and if the hose is larger at the clip than the clip, it is past time to replace them as the internal fabric pf the hose has rotten and failing the hose under pressure

Check the water control valve behind the engine close to the firewall. This valve opens and closes to allow hot coolant to enter the heater core. It is usually connected to the heater controls with a cable. When you adjust the heater control for heat, a cable activated lever on the valve should move and allow coolant to move through the valve. The cable from the heater control can come loose from the lever, or the valve itself can become corroded and hard to move.

SOURCE: Hi i have a vauxhall
I'm afraid this means your head gasket has gone. What you are seeing is emulsified oil (Oil and water that have been whipped up together by the engine to create an emulsion). There is only one cause for this: Water leaking into the oil from the cooling system. ...And there's only one way this can happen, which is a breach between an oil way and a water way. 99% likely this is a head gasket failing, with a small chance that you have a cracked head.
It's not a huge job for a "Local Mechanic" rather than a main dealer to undertake, but without action it will get worse and worse.
