I am very much revealing my ignorance here, but I don't now remember which fan it was, just that I think there are two (one is a back-up perhaps?) and they cool the engine down. So I am guessing engine fan. And I read that the fan issue is a common reason for the E-34 to have overheating issues. Actually I paid 27$ to when I was so frustrated with how my mechanic could 't figure out why it kept overheating and had spent 100's and 100's of dollars trying many non essential fixes. And the expense of those hoses! Best 27$ I have even spent!
