    Im going to be changing my thermostat and doing a coolant flush at the same time and i was wondering if anyone prefers any other type of coolant other than BMW brand coolant. Thanks (1995 BMW e36 325i)
  2. General BMW Questions
    Hey looking for some direction on solving issues with heat in my 2007 BMW 328xi Let's start at the beginning. My car started overheating on longer drives in the summer. I replaced the thermostat but the problem persisted. I started to think I had a blown head gasket and put "blue devil...

    Ok, so a couple months ago, my X5 started over heating (with no warning, at airport pickup of all places). A hose completely failed and all coolant drained. Had it towed to shop. They said it was just the hose failing and replaced it. Picked it up and drove to an appointment and back home...when...

    1) Car originally leaked antifreeze (gave no warning), overheated, and shut itself off. 2) Found that the holding tank was cracked, so we replaced it. 3) Noted that there was a gray/clay-like substance in old holding tank and a couple of hoses. Did not see it past those hoses. Replaced...

    So I'm about ready to scream. In October I had my water pump and thermostat replaced. It's now January, and now my radiator is leaking. I was driving, in -5 degree weather (if that makes a difference), and my car was only blowing cold air, no heat. I then got the temperature warning light...

    A week ago I was cut off on the highway and was mad and floored it. After getting off the highway, at the next stop light the battery light came on, and white smoke started coming in through the dash inside the cabin and at the windshield from under the hood. I thought it was on fire. I quickly...

    Hello there! I have just bought an e30 (my first BMW!!) I checked all the fluids took it for a drive and it ran great and everything checked out. But the other day on my drive I took off the coolant filler cap to put some more in and loads of coolant started running out from underneath the...

    My radiator appears to have started leaking at the bottom passenger side seam. Oddly, the radiator is only a couple years old?!? Anyways, was wondering what I should replace it with? And, is there anything else I should replace while I have it apart? And, what kind of antifreeze can I...

    Well I recently got rear-ended and somehow managed to get my radiator hose to pop off. I know the bmw coolant is recomended but as a temp. is it ok to use Peak 50/50. I am doing this tomorow so I need to know now as soon as possible I had complete loss of coolant. If its ok to use I'll do a...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I wanted to know if there is a brand of coolant that is pretty comparable to the BMW brand? The BMW dealer is almost 50 miles from me and there is an autozone a couple miles down the road. I know we are only "supposed" to use the BMW brand but does anyone have any other experiences with other...

    A few days ago my coolant sensor light came on. The car was running just fine. I drove home (10 minutes) and the car was parked in the garage over the weekend. (Nothing appeared to be wrong at all) A few days later I checked the coolant level and it was pretty low so I topped it off with the...
