    Sitting at light, never had any problems with engine (coolant temp dead center, always)...boom! Top hose pops off radiator. Replaced thermostat and water pump. Same problem. To radiator hose gets hot and hard, then pops! If I loosen radiator cap, the pressure relieves (though the water...

    I own a 2001 740il and recently my radiator bleed screw snapped off and my car overheated losing all of my coolant. I bought a new brass screw and while refilling and bleeding my radiator, I noticed that my coolant kept belching fluid and would overrun. This was happening with bleed screw back...

    It started with a split expansion tank, which I replaced with after market. The upper vent hose wouldn't seal over the fitting because the o-ring was not flexible after 11 years. O-ring was 12mm ID x 3 mm thick (18mm OD) and is not readily available through any channels in less than several...

    All - had another problem that I had to go to the dealer for and along the way there, I developed a leak in my radiator overflow tank and hose. Of course, I had to pay $158 to diagnose that problem. Like I couldn't tell from the dried coolant over the top of the engine cover! Long story, but I...

    I have recently had a coolant leak from a bad lower radiator hose. One of my signs of the leak was a coolant smell coming through my vents off and on as I drove. I had the hose replaced. It's only been 1 day since the fix but I still have the smell coming through my vents and it's stronger than...

  7. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I've been overheating during summer traffic jams (never on the open road), and the fan will not cut on....is it the entire fan, or the fan clutch, or other things ? I don't have any leaks and I've done the hose tests, and my lower hose gets very warm, and no leaking fluid, expansion tank level...

    Hello, I have a 2003 530i with 147K on it. It recently blew an upper radiator hose, I replaced it, refilled the fluid and in a day, it blew another upper hose. I put a new hose on (third) and it is holding. However, the expansion tank overflowed and the temp gauge started to climb. I pulled...

    Hi all, New to the forum and I apologize if this has been answered before. I am just lacking on time to research the responses at the moment. I took my '99 BMW 540i 6-speed in to get the expansion tank replaced and the shop brought to my attention to a small leak in the lower left-hand corner...

    I have an 02 525i, and recently my water pump blew up while driving (stopped at a light). I had the water pump, water pump pulley belts and thermostat replaced (I also replaced the two bleed screws when the idiots at garage lost the o-rings and just left it leaking coolant). This was in the...

    This hose is old and cracking and needs to be replaced. Is it the "lower" radiator hose? Or something else? See the pictures for details. I marked the hose I'm talking about with a red line running thru it. Please see attached pictures, thanks a lot.
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I had posted last week about problems I was having with my car. I took it to the dealership and told them to go through the WHOLE CAR. And let me know everything that needed to be done. I bought the car used from a friend of the family who was tired of spending 2-3000 everytime she took it to...
