    Got a high temperature warning on my 335ix 2013 120,000 km (75,000 miles). Engine temperature 120 C (248 F). Before I popped the hood I noticed some steam coming out through the grille. After lifting the hood I could see engine coolant on top of the radiator. Car was still driveable for the 8 km...

    Hey, I have a strange problem with the radiator fan on the E92 328i, I have searched all possible forums, and have not come across such a case: The engine heats up to a temperature of 93 degrees (water in the engine block), then the fan is started, which works at constantly higher revs and...

    I recently purchased a brand new Borg Warner OEM replacement for my 2007 550i from FCPEuro.com after realizing i needed to replace the water pump and water pump pulley. On my way to work a few days ago the upper coolant hose had so much pressure it popped and so i replaced that. today i ran...

    I’ve got a leak near my upper expansion tank hose and near the radiator hose going to the engine. I’ve noticed that when I drive the car more aggressively, it will leak more and even splatter under the hood. Any idea of what is leaking based on the picture?
  5. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys. I recently changed the entire cooling system on my e39 and noticed that the new thermostat housing that was put has a two pin plug I guess for connecting a wire to it. I'm guessing it is the thermostat housing temperature sensor. My question is, do I require to connect a wire to it(...

    So I've had my 2019 M4CS less than 600 miles, and it threw a check engine light. My BMW dealer diagnosed it as coolant leak - the video: The front heat exchanger/radiator seems to have a rock chip, so they won't warranty it. Their estimate is $2450 to replace. Is there any way around this? The...

    Hey guys, I have a quick question. So I have a 2018 330ix and im looking to upgrade the FMIC. But the more I look online the more confused I get. It seems only a few different companies make upgraded radiators and I cant find any intercoolers. Is this because its an air to water cooled system...

    Hello, I had tried to start my vehicle a few weeks back while the outside temperatures were about -5 and in my garage they were about 30 degrees or so. I had the hot air on for 10 minutes and it was not blowing any hot air out of the fan, and about 1 minute after driving it around the block I...

    2003 525i Sprung a leak on the watchamacallit on the driver's side of the radiator (see attached image of watchamacallit circled and red arrow pointing to the leak on the plastic part where the upper hose attaches). Nathan's DIY indicates it is only crimped onto the radiator. Can it be...

    I just took my 100k vehicle in for routine oil and some recall work. After the dealer had it 4 days, they came back with some work they found that was covered under SULEV and also indicated I needed some additional oil filter gasket replacement work and radiator replacement due to a leak. I...

    I have a 1998 Bmw 528i, recently I replaced the radiator since the other had a leak. Once I put in the radiator and add 50/50 colant, and test drive the car it began to overheat again after a half a mile drive. I noticed that the upper radiator hose has no coolant going through it, I checked it...

    2002 325i automatic. Just flushed the coolant for some work, and replaced the expansion tank along the way. Everything went swimmingly until I had to add coolant again. I added it as per instructions online, and everytime i crank the vehicle and run it, the 'low coolant' indicator comes on...
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I need to replace my coolant temp sensor. I watched a Youtube video on it and it looked really easy to do. I ordered the part and when I went to replace it I could not find the existing sensor. The video shows the guy looking down the driver side of the radiator and the sensor is on the top...
  20. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Good Afternoon All, So I had limp mode come on randomly one day while driving, it turned off after restart and then it came back intermittently over the next few weeks. Now it's on 100% of the time and it started to get harder to start the vehicle. The codes are 0700, 0335, and 1727. Did some...
