    Hello, I own a 2014 X1, s28i with 57K miles. I began receiving an intermittent "Service Engine Soon" light. I took it to a local AAAmco who diagnosed a P0597 code, suggesting I need a thermostat replacement. Wiggling the wires into the thermostat made the code go away. The car heats up...

    Hi Guys, I'm in the process of doing some cooling system work on my 2003 Z4 3.0. I've removed the expansion tank and drained the coolant from the radiator and the block. Now on to the thermostat. I realize there are 4 bolts holding it on, but I can barely see them. The metal "bulkhead" in...
  9. refitting thermostat

    7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Disconnected the passenger side hose off the thermostat and had an o-ring and a plastic ferule tumble out. Neither of these came with the new thermostat, are in good repair, so I'll reuse them. I'm having trouble refitting the hose on to the new thermostat. I put the ferule on first (tapered...
