  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My 2007 530xit (60k miles) overheated last week, first with a yellow then red warning light. The local BMW repair shop tells me I need a water pump and thermostat replacement to the tune of $1200. I had no problems with the car, cooling or otherwise, till last week when I found myself stuck in...
  2. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    Anyone considering replacing their water pump and/or thermostat in the X6 may want to give it a second thought. Our 2010 X6 3.5 has the adjustable sport suspension and there is even less room to work on it. I watched the videos of it being done on a non X-drive model and knew it would be tight...

    I have (actually my wife own it) a 1987 3251C. The vehicle is in Pristine condition with 27,500 actual miles. Interior, body, convertible top, all just immaculate. Its been in storage covered and resting comfortably in my heated warehouse since 2001. I have it so I can take the plugs out and...
  4. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi, My 2011 x5 3.5i had an engine overheat warning shown last Friday on a cool day. Just a few days earlier, I had noticed that the fan had turned on frequent loops for running 7-8 seconds at very high speed (made loud noise), then shuts off for ~10 seconds. It became quite annoying. I...
  5. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    We had our x3 into dealer for regular routine maintenance 16 days ago. Today, while driving to work, I got orange warning that my engine is overheating and to drive moderately (or something like that). 30 seconds later, red engine malfunction came on and basically car turned off. The car was...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm going to do some preventative maintenance and replace is before it blows to prevent the broken down on the side of the road fun. This is my first BMW; is it always better to buy the genuine BMW parts or are there alternatives that won't destroy my baby? This is a twin turbo (as you probably...
  7. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm seriously considering buying a 2008 535i (1 previous owner, sport package, cold weather package, 60k miles = $13k) it looks pretty clean. Although, I'm hearing horror stories about the fuel injector problems, fuel pump problems, and general maintenance issues. I already planned on replacing...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Got the dreaded overheat light driving to work. First the drive moderate followed quickly by the turn off the engine / overheated light. No warm air coming out of vents so figured it was low on coolant or stuck thermostat. Added about a quart of coolant but problem remained. Tried the auto...

    Hello Friends, I need your help to find out what's going on with my car. Recently I noticed the radiator fan goes high and low when I turn the heater on. that is really weird since the temperature outside is about 34 F. and engine temperature gauge haven't climbed up yet. even when I leave...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I drive a 2007 328i. The fan started hauling ass then started over heating, so I changed the water pump and the thermostat but still nothing it doing the same thing. Even tried to purge it and that didn't work so I'm thinking its the fuse maybe, dont know what else to do can some help me find...

    Hey looking for some direction on solving issues with heat in my 2007 BMW 328xi Let's start at the beginning. My car started overheating on longer drives in the summer. I replaced the thermostat but the problem persisted. I started to think I had a blown head gasket and put "blue devil...

  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey guys! I'm new here:) My car is a X3 2009 with 188k miles. I'm at the point where I want to just sell it. Last week whilst driving to work, I noticed the temperature needle creeping up. It was 3/4 up, so I found a parking immediately on the side of a street. I was desperate and late to...

  17. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    This is a compete cooling system overhaul kit, which includes all of the common E36 cooling system parts bundled into a complete package. The original E36's primary cooling components were prone to failure within 60k miles (or less in many cases). With better materials over the years we've seen...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    This is my wife's daily driver and I haven't had any cooling issues until recently. At 119,000 the water pump bearing started making noise and not having the time to do it myself I had a local mechanic change the pump and drive belts. Picked it up after the change and for a couple of days I...
