    Hi, I'm looking for a little help??

    I have recently bought a 318ti ( 04 plate)and have successfully completed my oil change. I have also changed the oil cooler as I believed this was causing oil to leak into the rad. I'm trying to flush all the remaining oil from the engine block as I have successfully bled the rad. I'm having trouble finding the bleed nut to flush the remaining coolant out but cannot find this. I have seen that it might be near the exhaust coming from the engine but the only nut I can see is not accessible at all. Please can anyone help a newbie trying to flush my coolant as I'm hoping this might be the reason I cannot get any hot air from the blowers. The car doesn't overheat at all, runs at normal temp but can't seem to get hot air.

    Please help.

    Sounds like your head gasket mate, if the the oil is mixing with water and your not getting any hot air

    I thought that? But there's no water in the oil, but there's oil in water which was leaking from oil cooler which is why I replaced it. Fingers crossed it not head gasket, I know there pricey.
