so I have a 2015 Infiniti QX70 that I took in for its routine oil change (Infiniti dealership). Before they completed the job, they recommended I replace the top radiator hose, bottom hose, and some type of belt. I agreed to fix all recommendations and picked up my car the next morning. I drove my car 20 miles home that day, woke up the next and drove another 20 miles to work. I left work and drove about 15 miles home (rain) when all of a sudden my car begins to stall, smoke, shake, and came to a complete stop (in the fast lane to the freeway)

Roadside assistance came and guided me to safety. He did a check and saw that my temp Was all the way on the H. He asked me to lift my hood, and within 5 mins asked me if I had just gotten my car fixed. Of course I said yes and his reply was “there is coolant all over and your radiator hose isn’t attached” He told me to call Infiniti right away but he would try to put it on for me. After securing the hose he tells me the safety component for the clamp was still intact and that may have been the reason. Either way he added water and had me on my way.

What kind of damage likely happened as a result of this hose, based on the distance I drove and the “symptoms” my car experienced??
