    Hey all. I've decided to overhaul my cooling system (never done this before on any car) on my 1999 E36 323i coupe - Right-hand drive European/UK model with air-con. The car is currently an auto but after this job and a couple of others, I will be getting it converted to a manual. So, any parts...

    Hi guys, I'm considering running ethylene glycol without water, at atmospheric. I live in a warm place. Yes, it's possible, here in Australia they make a coolant that is used straight without H2O. So, do you think I should keep the plastic expansion tank? I lost two in the past, first because I...

    Hi. I have a 2013 F11 520d N47 and the lower radiator pipe remains cool to the touch even though the temperature guage reads 100 degrees and the top pipe is hot to the touch. The fan also runs even with the lower pipe not being very hot. Also not much heat coming from the heater matrix Could the...
  6. 5 Series DIY
    I recently did the valve stem seals, coolant transfer pipe and refreshed all the coolant hoses since I think they were all original. I used Rein hoses, not OEM. Took a 1500 mile road trip, no problems. Today, coming out of work, big puddle under the front of the car. Filled it with water, got...

  9. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Does anybody know what sizes the hoses that come off the expansion tank are? Like the bottom two. Just need to know because I have to lengthen out the hoses so I can get my new electric rad fan to fit properly.

    So anytime I unlock my car or open the door the water pump is turning on even in the mornings when it hasn’t even been driven. I noticed that I started to leak coolant. I filed it up and it was empty again after a 15 min drive. Not sure what my problem is exactly, anyone got some advice or...

    I'm currently looking for the two coolant tanks in a 2013 BMW 750Li xDrive engine bay. However, I could only find one of the coolant reservoirs the one located under the engine cover, and there are two other reservoirs that I am not familiar with. I am familiar with the washer fluid reservoir...

    Ok so it’s not mine, it’s my brothers. He has a 523i 1998. Now he is not mechanical at all and couldn’t care less about a car, or it’s mainenance. I know what a horrible person he is. Now I was looking in the engine bay yesterday and I noticed dried coolant everywhere. I didn’t know where the...
