    Hi guys. Looking to do a coolant change on our 2012 X3 as judging by the service history it has never been done, I can understand why as there doesn’t appear to be a drain plug for the radiator anywhere which suggests I need to remove one of the lower radiator hoses. However, these are held in...

    Hello, So I just got my first e36 318is M44B19, and I’m given it a full decent service and clean. The coolant is just filled with water and has a brownish hint to it. I don’t know if the guy before me used tap water or distilled water so I’ve bought 2 gallons of distilled water plus a bottle of...

    Hi All, My car (e46 compact, 316ti) overheated and caused the coolant pressure cap to pop spraying coolant everywhere 🤦‍♂️ AA guy came out and checked it over and said I've not got a leak and suspects the water pump is at fault. I will be getting it into a garage asap, however I needed to ask...

    Hey guys. I have a 1997 323i manual and got some problems with it. There was quite a bit of condensation coming out of the exhaust, so I changed the spark plugs, ignition coils, oil and filter. Now the problem is, the condensation is not a small amount. And it doesn't always go away when the...

    My son has a 2006 Series 3 BMW 330i with the N52 engine and I have been looking after it while he has been away and giving it a weekly 30 min, 20 mile drive. I have noticed that it is using engine coolant and after the 30 min drive, some 200ml (1/5 of a litre) of coolant has gone judging by the...

    Hi, I bought my BMW in April 2019 from a trusted dealership. On 17th September I started receiving a Top Up Coolant message on the control system. Every so often the car would just lose power and the gear stick would vibrate. I booked to have this issue checked in with BMW (as advised by the...

    I'm trying to sell my BMW 320d MSport 2008 (160k miles) and have had a couple of people come by on separate days and both dipped their finger into the coolant and seemed shocked to see it black and immediately said the head gasket has gone. I had a feel and there's possibly an oily feel to the...

    Hi Do any of you use or heard of any additives that can increase the boiling point of the coolant to reduce the pressure on the system or do you have to replace all the coolant altogether to get the effect? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Had to fill up the expansion tank last Thursday as was bone dry, curious as the coolant light came on and I thought it was broke, anyway must we always bleed it or is filling it good enough?

    330D M57, some time ago I found the coolant flange (the one under the inlet manifold) had cracked and was leaking. I replaced the flange with a new one, and fitted it dry relying on the new rubber seal, although mating face had some corrosion. After a few weeks I found it was leaking. So I...

    Hi, I hope somebody can help, car is a 2003 E46 330i. I have had to replace the starter motor. (nightmare!) during the removal of the inlet manifold I managed to accidentally pull the wires out of the coolant temperature sensor connector. I've managed to salvage the connector and remove both...

    Hello, Well after selling my E46 (330D) for an X5 (to tow) I realised how much I missed the former, so I've got my hands on another one, this time an 1999 E46 318. Over the weekend I've had a couple of coolant issues, which I'm struggling to cure. The first was the adapter that sits at the...

    I have a coolant leak on my e90 320d n47 apparently coming from the coolant flange on head. It is very hard to see. 12 Connector 1 11127810707 13 Profile-gasket 1 11127810712 Interesting the coolant flange is available locally, so I am assuming it is not an uncommon problem. Is it possible...

    So, when the car begins to warm up, after some 5 minutes or so of driving, that warning appears on my dashboard. Annoyingly I had it when I bought the car and the dealer replaced the expansion tank. It vanished for a while, then returned, so I had the sensor replaced. Issue persisted so I had...
