    Attempted to search for the answers but: information overload! Brake pedal slowly bottoming out when engine running. Trying to determine if it's the brake master cylinder or the ABS unit. Advice is to plug the master cylinder outputs. What size plugs and where to get them at a reasonable price...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Guys, I have a brand new thermostat installed that won't open. I know that air was in the system prior. My mechanic however can not properly bleed the system because there is not enough coolant flow to the other side of the thermostat housing. If air is in the system, it could prevent the stat...

    So I've got air in my system after replacing the brake booster. I tried it the "normal" way (pressing the pedal like 5 times, holding it down, opening the bleed screw, let the air bubbles out, close bleed screw - repeat until no bubbles come out) but obviously this can't get air in the abs/dsc...

  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi All, I have a 328xi 2011 BMW. I removed the CDV today and may have let too much fluid come out during the process. Clutch has no resistance at all, tried bleeding the slave cylinder but nothing but air comes out (and very little fluid). I understand the e90 has one container for both the...

    Could an air bubble REALLY cause an E39 engine to overheat? The question came up today, in your typical overheating thread: > E39 (1997 - 2003) > overheating what could this be from? When, the answer came back, fundamentally, as: I get the "bigger problems" part; but could a single air...

    2004 330xi 164,000miles Here's another overheatiing problem that is costing me more than the car is worth- Yes it overheating 5 times in 45 days - each time my local garage (not a BMW garage) fixed what is broken and sent it out the door.

  11. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I was bleeding my breaks (rear pass side) and I made the biggest mistake, I asked my friend to pump the breaks as I was opening and closing the bleeder screw so now I have lots of air in the system. Now there is not pressure in the pedal and no oil comes out of the caliper, topped off the brake...
