    Hi all, I'm a long time reader of the forum and used many of the great DIY guides in the past. I have had my 2003 330ci MY2004 convertible for about a year now and I've had to tackle a number of the common problems (control arms, leaking valve cover gasket, bust radiator hose - replaced major...

    1998 528i began overheating again after a year of no problems. This time temperature wants to go up an stay up. Heater blows warm on driver side, but not hot. Heater blows luke warm on passenger side. Cooling system overhaul was done approx 15k miles ago. Coolant level is perfect. I replaced the...

    Just took a 1500km trip in my new 528. No issues; it survived the trip up, -35°C weather, being buried, and the trip down with a very full trunk… And then the next trip I took, a 15 min jaunt to the carwash and some other errands, it refused to get warm, AND the CEL came on. So I unlocked the...

    I have a 1997 BMW 528i. Recently I began to notice that the engine temp gauge would climb into the red and after being there for less than 10 seconds drop back to normal, only to do it again a couple minutes later. It continued to get worse so I replaced the water pump and thermostat along...
  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Morning, all. First post here. Our 24 Hours of LeMons team has acquired a 1987 325is with 280k miles for $500 and we'll be entering it in the New England LeMons race next month. We took it to NHMS this weekend for its first (and only :yikes:) pre-event shake-down with the Boston BMWCCA...
