    Greetings, First things first, introductions. I'm new to this forum but have been a lurker for a few months. My car is a 2002 530i with 5 speed manual. I grew up maintaining my own car (1991 Volvo 240) so I'm not completely useless with a 10 mil in my hand. I'm pretty new to the BMW and...

    I recently replaced my engine on my 2000 323i and have been driving it for about a week now since I finished putting the new one in. The only problems I have come into are my temperature gauge reads all the way hot but my car is not actually hot? Obviously since it reads that, every time I turn...

    Could an air bubble REALLY cause an E39 engine to overheat? The question came up today, in your typical overheating thread: > E39 (1997 - 2003) > overheating what could this be from? When, the answer came back, fundamentally, as: I get the "bigger problems" part; but could a single air...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I bought a 2006 BMW 325i about a month ago and it was good for 2-3 weeks and then the "Service Engine Soon" light came on and I got a diagnostics test done and the code that came up was P0128. So I ended up getting the thermostat swapped out and also the belt under the hood was touching the...

    I have a 1998 528i with approx 230k miles. When driving home from work (14 miles portal to portal) almost all highway driving, I get within a mile and a half of home and the temperature gauge suddenly shoots up to red. I pull off, turn off the car, turn the temperature for the heater up to 90...

    Greetings everyone! I am a new e39 owner (540iA) and my instrument cluster is not working properly. When I turn the car on, the fuel gauge will jump around a bit, the tachometer will jump up a bit, then slowly flick back down, and the speedometer won't read. I have heard the fix about the wheel...

    I have a 1997 540i that I have owned for about 6 months. It has 104K miles. In the past few days, I've had a number of issues that are probably unconnected, but I am hoping for some help since I can't afford to just start replacing everything. Known issues at purchase: -Check engine light for...

    I'm about 2500 miles into my new 328i RWD 6-Speed. I'd expected slightly better mileage in the city than what I'm getting. I also notice that the oil temp gauge doesn't go above 205 degrees F even on the hottest days in city driving. Normally floats in the 180F range. This isn't intended...

    I recently started dating a girl who drive a 2002 530i, and the other day, she called me frantic because her car was spewing white smoke. She immediately parked it, and I told her to not worry, that I would look at it. That night she gave me a little history of her issues with the car, so get...

    The outside temperature gauge displays a very inaccurate temperature that is 30-40F off from the actual outside temperature. It has not been working correctly since I purchased the car back in November with the exception of 1 episode where it reached the true outside temperature. Does it sound...

    Dear All, Yesterday when I started up my 530i Sport (2001) the heater would not blow any hot air. Today I decided to change the fuse (blade fuse) for the heater (it uses just 1) and then started to drive home from the car parts store and the following happened; 1. The temperature gauge went...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 2001 Z3. I tried to force the temperature dial from cold to warm and something broke. The dial now turns freely and does not adjust anything. I removed the radio to access the back of the dial but could not see what was broken. Does anyone know how to repair the dial. It looks like...

  15. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    So I was reading through here and found a few threads with the same issue, temperature gauge after a couple of minutes shooting right up and pinning at hot. BUT no overheating, just the gauge, and the light on the gauge doesn't light up. I turned the car off and immediatly back on and the gauge...

  17. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I have a 2000 323i and have noticed that at times the temperature/thermostat gauge will move all the way over into the red but the light that indicates the engine is overheating does not come on. I won't even drive far at all so I don't believe the engine even has time to overheat. If I...
  18. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I bought an 1986 325 3 weeks ago and my coolant temperature gauge is not functioning. Ive checked the fuses for continuity and I'm going to check to see if the old sensor has the same resistance as the one i ordered that did not fit. I'm wondering what the most common way for the gauge to fail...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So I've run into another problem... Hear me out here, and please help!!! I have a 2000 BMW 323ci with about 90K on it. I was driving the car normally at 60-70 km/hr for about 20 mins and happened to look at the temperature gauge and the needle was way over on the right at the end of the red...
