Hi Folks

You will know when I first posted this, and in the last month I received resolution from another garage who were aware of bad bleeding and guess what overheating.The machine has been serviced now and runs like a dream.

Let me tell you something when your garage starts bleeding you real good, look for another, overhead gasket indeed, its an easy cop out and a great load of cash for the guy who cant be bothered to do the job right.

Never give up and go to a decent garage who knows how to bleed the system as the E36 has a lean collant system therefore very difficult to bleed, Posting this as I would hate anybody to go through the rip off stuff I have been through, going to takr this further tho two receipts from old garage saying bleeding the coolant system eh no, the other garage charged ne 50 quid to bleed the system and a 30 mile run for road test assurance he has saved ny car, from sharks we all know they are out there be aware.
