So my dad was testing charges in my car and he ended up shorting out the transmission solenoid, and so the check engine light came on. but after driving it to autozone and back, i opened the hood and the upper radiator hose bursted open(ripped) and hot coolant came flying out.. do these two things have anything to do with each other? if so, what is wrong?

possible, if it wouldn't shift out of first gear, and you were red lining it all the way, it could have overheated...
