The hose to my radiator came off and coolant went everywhere. It has been smoking (thought it was just burning the coolant off). Could that hose coming off get coolant in my oil?
Do you
have the same problem?

There is no more chance of getting coolant in the oil than there is of getting the rain water in it that splashes onto the engine. If water could get in, that oil could leak out. Pop the hose back on, replace the hose clamp that likely rusted off, and refill the coolant.
