    Hey, so lately my car has been starting to overheat, I have a small water leak so I have to fill up the coolant ~once every two weeks and finally my car decided it wants to overheat while it's full on coolant. I have tried bleeding the system and I have replaced the thermostat and the water...

    Hello, everybody! I was hoping to get some feedback about post engine overheat experiences! Mine's an E34 BMW 524td from 1989 (M21 engine), quite a rare diesel version. A month ago, we had a bit of a scare because the water pump belt broke and the engine overheated for the first time in its...

    Background: I recently purchased an 02 325xi (120k) that was overheating after being driven ~5 min at highway speeds. OBD2 had 2 codes: overheat and misfire/ no fire in cylinder 3. Online research indicated to replace the cooling system. I drove to the part store with no issues, but the car...

    Hi all, My 1998 328i overheated today, and I have a couple questions as I try to diagnose what to fix next. First Overheat The car overheated when my mom was driving it a few weeks ago (slight uphill on the freeway). Fan Clutch Replacement Today, I replaced the fan clutch, hoping that might...

    2004 BMW X5 3.0. I had the valve cover gasket and thermostat replaced last fall. Vehicle sat for 6 months, started driving again. Added 1/2 qt of antifreeze that was clear to top off, said for Mercedes on the container. Previous fluid was green. Vehicle now overheats quickly, turning on heater...
  7. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Since it's gotten warmer, I've recently noticed that I'm not hearing the auxiliary fan kick on.. especially at stop lights when the car isn't moving and it's like 90° outside. I tested the fan in ISTA and didn't have any problem getting it to turn on. One thing I did find was that the DME could...

    Hi guys, I currently have a 2004 325Ci convertible, and here is the description of the issue: A week ago the car overheated while driving, the coolant steamed out of the hood. I opened the hood and found that there was a crack in the upper radiator pipe (huge crack that coolant was able to flow...

    I don't know what I can do more to solve this :( last year I had a severe overheating problem with my tranny and it was fixed by replacing clogged heat exchanger and voltage regulator (trans tstat). now I'm having overheating issue once again, not as severe though, it only happens if I do some...

    Hi, I have had the radiator, water pump, thermostat, and reservoir tank all replaced. When the guy checks the tank is full and as the car heats up he untwist the cap near the thermostat to bleed the line, its all steam that comes out and doesn't stop. Slowly the car goes into the red...

    Yesterday I was driving without issue and then noticed the temperature gauge shoot up, I pulled over immediately and it was close to red. No warning lights, no driving issues and no limp mode prior to pulling over and shutting off the vehicle. I started seeing some steam from the front of the...

    Hi I have had my car for over 2 years. I have replaced the radiator as the last one split. That was a year and a half ago. The expansion tank never seems to have water in when cold but always seems to be ok. The issue I'm having is intermittently the car heats up (when the ac is on) I found the...
  13. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    We had our x3 into dealer for regular routine maintenance 16 days ago. Today, while driving to work, I got orange warning that my engine is overheating and to drive moderately (or something like that). 30 seconds later, red engine malfunction came on and basically car turned off. The car was...
  14. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    So I just bought 528i a week ago and it has driven fine, then on my way to work the temp gauge pegged in red for about 5 seconds (pulling over to shut down pissed off) then started dropping to normal again. It does it at complete random times and also I have no heat inside unless I'm really on...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    This problem has started a year ago what happens is: The car (520i 2002) runs normally without any problems, temp gauge drops on high speed... and sometimes specially when I put some load on the engine such as accelerating to high RPM the water circulation gets locked then water starts to get...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Long story short. Six weeks or so back I replaced a broken hose coming off of my thermostat. Drained and filled the cooling system with BMW coolant (50/50). After a few weeks I decided I would check and run the procedure to bleed air out of the system as a 'just in case' precaution. The...

    Hi I own a 2002 325i. After a cold night, I realized my temp display needle is now staying at 1 quarter when engine is turned off, and goes up to 3 quarter when I drive the car/engine gets to regular warmth. I assume there is no overheating. I changed the sensor but no help. Any body knows how I...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2006 bmw 530i. I've gotten the Engin overheat warning a couple times. Both times I had enough coolant in the radiator. Right now the car drives fine and does not overheat if the heater fan is off. However, If I start the heater fan the radiator fan oscillates from full speed to low...
  19. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2006 X3 3.0i, almost 100K. It runs fine….BUT; I'm getting 2 codes, which return after clearing them: 27C3 Thermal oil-level sensor 2774 CAN message, engine shutdown time I searched the fest for discussion on these codes, but I guess they are not all that interesting or common to...
  20. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    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...
