  1. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi there guys! I'll put you in context: I have my Zed since 2015, I spend a lot of money on him, it has a radiator and thermostat changed 30,000 km ago, I added a viscous ... not to mention a thousand more things. I LIVE WITH PANIC TO WHICH I OVERHEAT, it has happened to me three times...
  2. 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...

    Does anyone have any experience with dual zone climate control not working in the sense that if one side is set warmer and one colder (doesn't matter which) it blends the two temperatures together for both sides?

    I don't know what I can do more to solve this :( last year I had a severe overheating problem with my tranny and it was fixed by replacing clogged heat exchanger and voltage regulator (trans tstat). now I'm having overheating issue once again, not as severe though, it only happens if I do some...
  5. G30 (2017 - Current)
    I have a 2018 G30 (530i) on the way (currently in the port at Bremerhaven) but do have a question about what can be done by voice command. One of *the* things I do all the time here in Florida is to change the temperature. (In my prior 2001 530i, 2008 335i and a 2007 MB E350 I also own) I've...

    This quite bothers me and no one seems to know why. This transmission always had a jerk when switching 1-2-3. After changing oil and filter it shifts smooth (in Drive) only after driving for a few miles, after engine temp and probably transmission temp get high. Otherwise, in the morning or...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, my e46 2004 325i beeped and gave a 37 degrees F warning on the display where the clock normally is. It's now just showing temperature. Playing with the odometer sticks just switches from F to C. Is there a way to get the clock back without having to take it to the shop for them to enter...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    My temperature gauge sits about 2mm to the left if the middle line in my e36. In my e34 it sits right on that line. Does this mean i have a bad thermostat? The temp sensors have been tested and replaced, same issue. I have a check engine light for the o2 sensor (1221) that turns off at wide open...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1996 328i I just bought, and randomly, after driving a while, it beeps a warning that the outside air temperature is -36 degrees. Then it may slowly rise. I'd like to locate and clean, or replace the sensor but have searched the internet and can't find the location for this particular...

    Hey guys and gals, The YouTube channel "B is for Build" is currently patching together a 2001 e46 325i for Oregon's "500/500 Rally", where one takes a $500 car and drives it for 500 miles on fire roads and whatnot. Anyways, Chris of B is for Build has built a custom cooling system, but he'd...

    Hey. I have a 04 BMW 325ci. I've noticed that there was dry coolant when I had popped my hood around my expansion tank etc. Seems that I'm losing MPG & that my car isn't accelerating as fast IMO. I've noticed lil wet spots around the expansion tank and seems to me that it's leaking from the...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    When I bought my car the temp gauge did not work so i replaced the temp sensor under the intake thinking that it would fix it. It half way fixed the issue. When i start the car the needle jumps to the top of the blue section and stays there the whole time and does not move. If i drive it around...

    96 328i convertible 5spd 102xxx Engine light on, code P0125 I was on the freeway the other day when all of a sudden the car loses power, I look down and the temp gague is all the way in the red. I then wait for it too cool down. Car starts normal.. I try & make it home but had to pull over 3...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Folks, I'll get right to the point... I have a 2007 E60 525xi (N52) with a cooling fan issue. I've scoured the threads on this site and others, so as not to ask a repetitive question, yet have not found a really clear answer. It's been between 5F-20F here in Upstate NY. On...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    The car is overheating a little bit. Every once in a while when it was cold out (I think) I would get a check coolant message. Coolant level was fine next day when it was cold. Yesterday coming home from work I smelled coolant and when I parked out dripped a small puddle. I checked the level...
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi all, Recently my E36 320i has been running rough for the first minute or so after starting. Basically what happens is the car jumps when climbing through the revs. After a minute or so it subsides and runs fine. I thought that it had something do with the engine being cold however I tested...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    2006 525i Can somebody look under at there outside air temperature sensor right up under the front bumper and tell me the colors of the two wires that used for it? Mine was damaged in the front end and mines not hooked up. I have a few wires with no ends with multiple things not hooked up like...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi guys I'm new here just made an account today but have been reading quite a few forums the past week. I have a question about the coolant temp sensor. My 94 318i is having hard cold starts it takes usually 4 long starts to get it to finally idle. I have a few codes I found one being the...

    My 7 button OBC is displaying a temerature of -35°F and -37.0°C. What is causing this error? Also the LCD display in this area is weak and some lines are partially displayed when they are and are not to be lit up.
