well tonight i was putting some oil into my car and i noticed that my radiator hose seems really really big, it looks like it's swollen. should i get a new hose?, i have a feeling it's going to pop one of these days or something
You appear to be driving on borrowed time. Immediately change both hoses. You also need to start planning to replace the 17 other coolant hoses. Preventative Maintenance is your friend.

Acura of Augusta (GA), Asian Auto Parts (CA), or A&H Motorsports (PA).

Your hose could split at any moment. By a generic from local auto parts store and install while you order OEM and await ship.

LPB is right. When a hose starts to buldge, this means the reinforcement fibers within the rubber has deteriorated. The hose must be replaced ASAP. Otherwise coolant pressure will soon break through it.
