7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Coolant Leak on 745i

I recently aquired a BMW 745i. Its seems to be in pretty good condition. Do however have 1 complaint. It must have a coolant leak in the hose or something because I doesn't matter how much coolant I have put in the car it blows through it within 2 days. The car smokes because it would seem coolant is being leaked onto the engine and burning from the heat of the engine. I live in Houston, TX and I am trying to find a good shop to go to.

I had similar problem and it turned out to be a weep hole issue(major coolant leak before the coolant will not be contained). There are quite a few fixes from cheap to very expensive. Do the inital diagnosis and see what the mechanic says. If you wait too long, then the coolant will not be contained and next thing you know, would end up getting it towed.

Get it checked and fixed ASAP.

Good luck!
