  1. General BMW Questions
    I bought my 2019 X3 M40i a few weeks ago (mid-July). A couple of weeks ago I noticed that when I start the car, there is a burst of hot, sweet-smelling air that comes through the vents before switching to the cool AC. We checked the coolant and noticed the turbo reservoir was below the min (this...

    Okay so yes I know this is not actually a BMW but its still a B58 and I am in desperate need of help here. Very very intermittent issue where the coolant decides to literally explode and force its way out of the main reservoir. The car is completely stock. Dealership has had it for months and...

    We have a water leak from what appears to be a hairline crack in a pipe tucked right up beside the gearbox. Gearbox is to the left looking at the photo. Not sure what or how serious this is? Thoughts are its related to the air con rather than the coolant. Can anyone shed any light on this...

    Hello, I used O'reily's premixed 50/50 Universal coolant to top off my 2009 535i, before watching videos specific to BMW all seemed recommend strongly for using only BMW blue coolant which is got me really nervous. I don't know how bad it is for the car, and if I should go get it flushed... I'd...

    Last week I got stuck in some snow in my X5 and I kept trying to get out for 30 minutes until my coolant system couldn’t take it anymore and the connector that connects the upper radiator hose and the coolant hose going to expansion tank return, to the oil filter housing flew out, ripping out a...

    Hey there, this is my first post and wanted to seek some help. Was doing some spirited driving in my 2007 335i E90 and my coolant light came on. Went home and let it settle for a few hours, checked the coolant tank and it was low. So naturally the next morning I filled it up and bled the coolant...

    Hi all - 4 months ago, the coolant vent hose in my 2016 F36 (52K miles) broke while driving, spraying coolant all over my engine. Pulled over as soon as possible, and replaced the hose on-site with an OEM hose purchased from BMW dealership. Drove home on low/possibly empty coolant tank. The...

    Hi Guys, the vehicle only has around 46k. Noticed a slight loss of power under hard acceleration, also noticed the cooling fan running full speed at certain times. Then the CEL illuminated with P0128. The weather has recently cooled off here in the northeast. I noticed the heat did not seem as...

    Good time of the day guys, Got E92 325i manual and driving it around in UK (did 121k miles so far). After ~100 miles drive recently noticed that there is no hot air coming from the air vents (outside temp was around 5 degrees C according to the cluster). After some more diagnosis, realised that...

    I have a 2004 bmw 330ci zhp. So the problem I’m having is that after driving it takes multiple hours for my coolant to cool down enough to open the cap. Like at least 3 to 4 hours. Otherwise it overflows. I just think it seems like that’s way to long. Also another issue I have is when I’m...
