    Now then guys, how's tricks?
    Last Saturday I bought myself a budget 1993 325i SE, not sure why. German engineering maybe or they just look great.
    As it was a budget I've noticed a couple of foibles, a weird plinking noise when i'm driving.....gonna have a good look through the forum to see if anyone else has this problem.
    Also my OBC is telling me I have to check my coolant even though it's full.....bizzare!! Apart from those couple of things and a few bulbs that had blown I'm enjoying the nice smooth ride.
    Anyhow a big hello to you all.

    Hi Pedroelfufu


    nice username!!

    Congrats on your new purchase...have you considered the possibility that there may be an old Harp player trapped in the boot?

    Also, please take a gander here

    link


    at the forum posting guidelines and then post your technical questions in the approapriate forum which is this one
    Here

    being serious, we need more specifics about where the plink noise is coming from, and does anything cause it? is it engine noise or chassis? when turning? braking? etc

    The coolant warning light will be the coolant warning sensor which is on the 'top of the coolant bottle.
    Check the contacts and also that the plunger is working freely.


    please also add this to the front of thread titles

    '1993 E36 325i se - Your tech problem'

    as it makes the forum much easier to search for other members. Sorry to bombard you with the laws of the land
