    So I drive a 2006 BMW 530i, the car has 123k on it. I've had the car for over a year now, but lately its been throwing me this overheating message when I start it for the first time of the day/engine is cold. I can get in, start the car, and drive just like any other normal day. But, as the car...

    Good Afternoon everyone! So, I've ran into a bit of an issue with my '05 645Ci that I am hoping someone here will have the knowledge to assist me. For some reason my radiator fan is not wanting to come on. I spoke with a BMW mechanic and he told me that he was 99% sure it was the water pump...

    I purchased a 1999 BMW 528i with 152000kms (just under a 100000 miles) on the clock in July 2016. Since then I have driven about 4000kms (2500 miles) in it without any problems. Three weeks ago the car suddenly started to overheat whilst driving. I took it to a BMW specialist and he replaced...

    Hey looking for some direction on solving issues with heat in my 2007 BMW 328xi Let's start at the beginning. My car started overheating on longer drives in the summer. I replaced the thermostat but the problem persisted. I started to think I had a blown head gasket and put "blue devil...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone, It has been awhile since my last post in the forums. In the past few weeks, I have received one engine overheating message and one engine too hot message. Both of the warnings occurred after approximately an hour of city drive. However, both errors occurred after...

    Hi All: I own a 2005 BMW 325i with 70k miles. In the past month my temp gauge will spike all the way red, slowly come back down to middle. Does not do this every time I drive and can happen even on the first start of the morning. I have noticed that if I turn the car to the ON position (not...

  12. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all. After reading all the post that I could, I'm at a dead end with my overheating problem. Who of you think you really know what the problem is? I have a 1997 E39 BMW 528i. I have installed a new fan clutch, water pump, thermostat, the auxiliary electric water pump, a new...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I had a rough weekend with my 2007 328xi. About 10 minutes into the long drive to visit my folks, my car went into overheating limp-mode during bumper-to-bumper traffic on i-95 and I ended up with a pretty expensive tow back to my driveway. I pulled the codes with INPA today and there was only...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2009 X3--recently my wife was driving it, and the coolant reservoir exploded-- I replaced it, and things seemed to be fine, until it started to overheat a few times while in traffic. I'm on the road away from home and it started to overheat again, so I took it to a nearby dealership...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My z4 keeps overheating. I have to use the heater to keep it running without overheating. I have replaced the fan the thermostat and reservoir. Please give some idea of what's happening. My only solution seems to remove the thermostat

    Hi All, My car overheated on me today. A video of what happened is on youtube here: In summary: - I was driving for about 2 hours in stop start traffic this morning. - Yellow warning light came on. I pulled over and opened the hood. - The fan wasn't spinning. So I turned off the car. (1:08...

    Another E39 540i overheating, and yes, I did do a search on this Forum before creating a new Thread :) The situation that my 540i is in though, is really strange, and I was not able to find a single issue that would explain all the issues. There could be multiple issues causing things going...

    Hi Bimmerfest, Car is a 2000 528i 5sp manual. Walking to my car from work today -- I noticed a leak underneath my car... Trying to figure out what it was, I wasn't sure and might have thought it was coolant... I didn't mind it. I bought the car over a year ago -- and I'm honestly not sure...
  20. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    For the first time, our X3 (N52 engine) overheated on my wife at the 100K mile mark. Had it towed home and replaced the cracked coolant reservoir with fingers crossed. Test drove to the store and mid way back it overheated. No damage, car starts great, idles great, no sounds, etc. So, I...
