I just got an 85 528i and ive noticed that it overheats pretty quickly. Ive tried to figure out why but I'm getting low on ideas...
-The thermostat was just replaced
-Coolant hoses appear to be fine and tank is topped up
-Fan belt doesnt look frayed or cracked
-radiator was recently topped up
-There are no heavy grease deposits on the engine-its all pretty clean
The cylinder head has just been replaced and the whole thing serviced so it should be fine. I need to figure this out so I can hold my mechanic to his repair quote.
Any suggestions would be appreciated...
