    Hi, hoping someone can shed some light. Around a year ago my beloved 00' E46 316i se ran into a few overheating issues. Its a 1.9l Inline 4 from factory and from what I can gather these engines were created for the 318i e36's. The car was bought on 54k and was absolutely mint, around 6 months...

    So my car had done as near as makes no diffrence 170000KM. In 2020 the car notified me the coolant was low, it turned out to be a radiator leak so I changed it. after this I noticed the oil temp gauge went straight up to 120 degrees c and stayed there, there was also no noise coming from the...

    I’ve got a 2004 325i and the temp gauge is showing overheating so I changed out the water pump, thermostat, and coolant temp sensor. HOWEVER in the secret menu under the coolant/engine temp it shows 0121 which to my knowledge means 12.1 C. Which would be like 50F. Note that whenever I overheat...

    So my transmission has been overheating for a few months now but for a while I was thinking I just needed a rebuild and was putting it off, until recently when I realized that the harsh 3-2 and 2-1 downshifts were happening after an extended drive. I used INPA to check the analogue data in the...

    Really stumped on this one. The aux fan only works when the A/C is on. I replaced the temp sensor on the lower radiator hose and the aux fan sensor on the shroud. I tested the fan through INPA with low/mid/high speed and it works so I know the fan is still good. I also checked the two big...

I checked my fuses and it is related...
