HOSE BLOWING OFF

1999 BMW 323

Engine Cooling problem
1999 BMW 323 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 84000 miles

I just replaced the water pump, thermostat and coolant reservoir on my BMW323i a couple of weeks ago. Today, the hose that runs from the reservoir to the engine blew off. I re-secured it and tried it again, to no avail. It blew off again. What could be causing the excess pressure?

Has the engine been overheated?
