    Sitting at light, never had any problems with engine (coolant temp dead center, always)...boom! Top hose pops off radiator. Replaced thermostat and water pump. Same problem. To radiator hose gets hot and hard, then pops! If I loosen radiator cap, the pressure relieves (though the water...

    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...
  5. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    My 08 just passed 90K miles recently. It was really cold yesterday (not sure if it is relevant...) and once the car dropped down to normal idle speed, I heard slow interval knock. It sounds like it is coming from the front of the block so I am guessing it is the water pump or one of the other...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Recently had my cooling fan go into overdrive every time I turned on my car. Wasn't sure why, but I knew I had to drive to work. Also noticed my climate control would push cool air, but not any hot air. In fact it pushed cool air even when it was set to heat. After a few days I got an engine...

    My 07 328xi overheats 50% of the time. I am not driving it anymore just to be clear. I replaced the thermostat and it still did it. Crazy thing that I can do makes me believe it’s the water pump now but I wanna make sure before I spend the $$$ on it. When it starts to overheat I open the hood...

  10. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Since it's gotten warmer, I've recently noticed that I'm not hearing the auxiliary fan kick on.. especially at stop lights when the car isn't moving and it's like 90° outside. I tested the fan in ISTA and didn't have any problem getting it to turn on. One thing I did find was that the DME could...

Wife driving home (right by the house, luckily) got the orange 'too hot, drive slowly' then 30 seconds later the red 'it's really hot, shut me down!!' display messages. I let it cool and drove it the...

    I have a 2008, X5 4.8i and need directions on replacing the water pump. Are there any clear instructions on how to get this done? I have the tools but haven't worked on anything other than Chevys and Fords. Please help, I need to get this car running soon. I'm borrowing a car until this one...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Can someone tell me if the 2003 325XI all wheel drive is considered a standard E46? I am replacing the alternator, idler pulley, tensioner, and water pump. The diagram looks the same but the new idler pulley does not look like the old one. Car has 118k on it. I changed the alternator. bearing...
