MY CAR KEEPS OVER HEATING..THE STEALERSHIP SAID IT IS PROBABLY THE HEAD GASKET...I ALREADY CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT..AND IT KEEPS HAPPENING...ANY HELP WITH LOCATING A NEW ENGINE IN NEW YORK WOULD BE GREAT..
dude, just because if your headgasket needs replacing does not meed you need a new engine, take hour car to a good indy shop in your area test can be done to verify if it is a headgasket failure, it probably isnt a water pump it it may be a bad fan clutch or your radiator may not be flowing well, and did you change the thermostat yourself and if you did , did you open the bleed screws when filling the cooling system
a 98 528i is not worth the engine swap, the value of the engine can possibly go beyond the value of the vehicle. its time to for for a 02 and up 525 or 530 if you like the economy and gas mileage of the i-6.
