These babies run hot. Any weak point will be exploited. I blew a hose at the rear firewall after a long trip to Florida. Was thankful it happened once I was there instead of on the highway. Read of many cooling issues on the E38. Now home I decided how much I like the car and want to use it more often. Not wanting anything on my mind I ordered every hose on the engine and a new heater valve also. When those clog hoses explode! I also bought a new radiator online pretty cheap. VERY important to bleed thoroughly. The mechanic in Fla. felt I wasn't bled correctly and this led to extra pressure on a weak hose. So after I install all new, I will make sure I am bled correctly. I am installing a new fan blade have read of those breaking apart causing damage also. They get brittle. Good luck!!!
