Engine Cooling problem
1997 BMW 740 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 179, 00 miles

The hose connected to the radiator came off 2 weeks ago. Mechanic said I needed a new radiator and hose, so I replaced both. Worked great for 1 day. Then, the bottom hose to the radiator came off. Mechanic suggested replacing water pump- so the water pump was replaced. Worked fine for 1 day- My car is still leaking antifreeze. I have a 1997 BMW 179,000 miles. Please help!

The V-8 BMW motors usually require valley pan replacement as the cooling system matures. You have first hand experience with radiator failure, then water pump, now it's the valley pans turn.
