radiator

Yes, I am sure. Expansion tank replaced last year. I have identified the leak on a plastic section upper right of the radiator. Only leaks when it is under pressure after vehicle rums a while.

Low Coolant, Not Cool

Hello Bimmer Enthusiast,

I have an estimate to replace the radiator in my 2003 325i...... $800.

I add coolant every two weeks and can not afford the replacement now.

Will I have any luck...
