Have you considered asking your local BMW service/parts manager for advice? Some are happy to help, others not so much. It's worth a shot. I did that several times successfully when working on my...

Just a thought: You never mentioned that you replaced the fuel filter. Now that the problem is resolved, my suggestion is moot. However, if you haven't already, it may be a good idea to take care of...

Thanks Turbo, I've had to back-step before so it's nothing new.

Thanks, Cam. You're correct about the combination. Regarding the E60, I certainly won't! :)

The E39 has impressed me long before I owned one. I'm just happy to have been a part of the craze.

Leaving the fold

It saddens my heart but I had to surrender my 530 for something a bit more frugal. This is due in large part to financial concerns at home.

With the cost of fuel rising, my obscene daily commute...

That would be a fair price for the 0W40 but most places I shop charge well over $8/qt; the M1 5qt 0W40 jugs are nowhere to be found.

For those like me who don't have a Reilly's nearby, Mobil 1 0W40 BMW LL-01 is $6.79/qt at Walmart. Not as good a deal, admittedly, but it's still a decent savings.

I am eager to see the outcome. Seems too good to be true, based on current average costs for the work everywhere else. Good luck!

Have you asked your agent if this may be covered under the Comprehensive coverage? It's seems to me to be similar to Vandalism which is normally covered based on the wording of the policy.

Not sure the reason but mine just started doing this yesterday. I'm on my third expansion tank and it was replaced about two months ago. Worst cooling system evar!
