Mein Auto: 2007 530I
Angry Engine coolant flush problems!!!!

Well Im trying to do a coolant flush; everything indicates that the car has a electronic pump so i place the key in the slot hit the ignition and put it in the on position (with the car not running) press the pedal to the metal for 20 seconds and nothing happens.

Im trying to figure out if there is another way to do a coolant flush? Or is there another way do the flush?

Vehicle is a 530i 2007 Manual transmission

Just completed a engine rebuild!!!!

Mein Auto: Some Bavarian car outside
The procedure you seek is bleeding or purging. The flushing comes from removing all the old coolant and replacing with all new coolant.
In that case, make sure your vehicle is on a level surface, turn the car to accessory 2 mode (key in ignition, foot NOT on brake or clutch, push start button once, then once again to see a check engine light, engine NOT running). Turn on fan blower, turn temperature knobs all the way to hot, foot on accelerator pedal all the way to the floor for 10 seconds (or until you hear the bleeding start) operation starts and runs a full 12 minutes. You want to hear when the process starts so turn off music or all the way down the volume, and the fan speed need only be to the first ot second speed setting.

Ensure your level is correct afterwards and fill as necessary.
