Here's my concern. The car is driveable and does now emit any smoke. I know that driving with a crack in the radiator is foolish and risky, so what could this problem actually be?

I am somewhat sure that my gaskets are "fine" and not perfect; however I was informed that something is not reguating pressure or that there is too much pressure somewhere. ( I am not savy on these things like my mother,brother and older sister).

A BMW specialist told me it might not even be a gasket problem and I should not be discouraged just yet. I was also discouraged from purchasing ANY type of sealant (of course, by many mechanics), for these will ruin my engine.
