Mein Auto: '01 540i 6sp '01 X5 4.4
Not certain if my situation is/was the same, but I just completed the timing chain guides on our '01 X5 4.4i and my new best friend, (an Indy that was recommended by my regular Indy) discovered a small leak in the bypass hose that allows warm water into the heating radiators for the HVAC. I couldn't understand why or where this pool of @ 1/2 pint or so came from...I think that was the problem...we pck it upi on Monday and I'll report back to make sure thatwas the culprit
'01 540i 6-speed, blk/blk, upgraded stereo w/sub, passport, Dice Mediabridge and some cool M-stuff
