    evening people, after buying a pup with a knackered water pump and a blown head....none of which i can prove at point of sale....bugger!!!!

    anyways, so after it blowing the rad i replaced that and it still overheated, so i changed the water pump....which was the old plastic type and kind of melted


    so after replacing this with the metal one i filled up the coolant system once more just to see come straight back the open filler cap with started and revved.....heads gotta come off now then!

    started it this evening and hopefully by tomorrow will have the head off read for inspecting and skimming

    make sure you have the block theads replaced or you will just pull the old treads out of the block and mess the head gasket up

    Have a read through this thread 1998 E36 328i cylinder head removal

    IMO you'll be better off sourcing another good engine and putting it in instead
