    Background: My 528i (m52tu) has low compression in cylinder 3, and I'm in the process of removing/replacing the cylinder head. The car was overheated years ago, still ran ok but was never quite the same, had cylinder 3 misfire codes, spent some time in storage and now I'm tearing into it. My...

    Hi All, OK First off, this is my first post on here, Secondly it's about my mom's car, I drive an Audi (please don't hate me!) but respect all german cars. I am not the most familiar with working on BMW's so I figured I would turn to all of you for help. So the story goes; I got a call from...

    So after about a month of my Coolant light coming on and going off at random (I checked the coolant level cold and it was full each time) a couple days ago I'd been driving for about 350 miles and my temp gauge went from normal to HOT in about 2 minutes on the highway. After having it towed...

    I have searched.....and have found a fair amount of info.....but, just in case...... My 530i has about 86k miles, runs like a champ. Love the car. It has overheated about 5-7 times in the last 4 months, only on the highway. Once the warning comes on, I stop the car, shut it down for about...

    ok, this is a long story so im going to talk about the main events of what happen, and try to keep it short....

    So I was driving normally and all of a sudden I got the orange temperature signal that my engine is overheating then just a few minutes or seconds even after the red version of that signal pops and the engine starts to shutdown and I press on the gas and the car hardly moves. So I stopped the...

    Ok so I've had my '97 M3 E36 for just over a year now and it's been blowing apart clutch fans and ruining radiators since day one. So, the other day I'm driving home for an emergency when this thing decides it's time to go and puts a big huge hole in my radiator. I may have pushed it a little...

    Problem with my 540i E39. This problem started while I was at a drive thru waiting, and my car just overheated! So I turned off a/c and opened window, it wasn't until after I started driving again did it decide to cool down. Since this has happened my outside temperature sensor will give the...

    I own 99 323I, it has 150k on it, I just love driving it. Last Friday morning, I saw the coolant indicator but drove it work with a plan to have the coolant filled near work (40 miles from home). One the way back home the coolant indicator disappeared, so I thought the indicator popped in the...

    So, I've had this small leak for a few weeks and I've just been adding water, checking often and trying not to drive much. Well, I noticed the other day when the temp outside was about 97 degrees that my gauge was creeping toward the red. I pulled over, let her cool down and added water. My...
