I am giving you a walk through diagnostic for your situation. It sounds like you may have a leaking head gasket. You can get a compression test will tell you if you need a head gasket. This is discussed in the diagnostic.Just use the link below;

Just add to this one please dont start a new question to post a reply its confusing for everyone. Post all replies to the question you asked. Also I never said to replace the hose I said to chek it. So do your spark plugs face straight up or at a angle towards the front of the car?Is there oil on the outside of the plugs or the inside where they go inside the head?
