  1. General BMW Questions
    Hi Everyone, we have a 2014 x1 xdrive28i with the N20 engine. Only around 50k. The timing chains and guides and thermostat were replaced last year. Sometimes I hear the radiator fan running full speed, even when it is cold outside. This has led me to investigate since it never used to do this...

    Hello, I've been working on an issue with my 2012 335i coupe (LCI) that I'm hoping someone can help with. It's an automatic with the M-Sport package, RWD, automatic, and has 95,xxx miles. About 2 years ago my OEM radiator cracked along the plastic edge so I took it in and had it replaced. 14...

    I recently fitted a new Nissens 60623A radiator to my E36. I wanted to replace the bleed screw but every single one I buy has a finer thread! I took the bleed screw out of my new radiator and compared it to the one from my previous radiator (which was also a Nissens 60623A) and found that the...

    Hey all. I've decided to overhaul my cooling system (never done this before on any car) on my 1999 E36 323i coupe - Right-hand drive European/UK model with air-con. The car is currently an auto but after this job and a couple of others, I will be getting it converted to a manual. So, any parts...

    What started as a low coolant light is now going to need the thermostat, water pump and radiator to be replaced. 🤦‍♀️There is no way I'm going to be able to afford a licensed mechanic👩‍🔧, so I'll have to do. Any advice? I have $1000 budget.

    This bolt looks like it supports the radiator - mechanic has sheared the top off. Will there be any issues other than more vibration and rattles?
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I wanted to get some help and confirmation if I need to replace the whole radiator or maybe this is just the mounting bracket that holds the expansion tank. So far, I’ve replaced expansion tank, transmission thermostat, and upper radiator hose. Once I replaced the upper radiator hose...

    Hi Everyone - 540D owner here. Is it normal for the radiator to remain on for around 5 to 10 minutes after the car is shut off? Never owned a diesel before. Couple things that may be worth noting: 1) Battery replaced in March 2) Check engine light came on in April 3) Charged battery...

    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...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    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?
  14. 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...

    I have searched but cannot find a thread that solves my problems without throwing money at it. Backstory: Replaced radiator with a cheap aftermarket one last fall because the old one was leaking. Was find until about last month when it started popping hoses off. 4 times total, 3/4 were right...

    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...
