  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Good day fellow Bimmer drivers I have an E91 320i SE 2008 model. A week and a half ago, whilst driving, the engine temperature warning light came on (yellow icon showing a thermometer immersed in water). Shortly after that, the warning light went to red and the car immediately went into limp...

    My E64 630 CI 2005 needs a new water pump. The supplier suggested changing the ‘belt’ whilst we were there. I realised after I had no idea which belt he was even referring to. My mechanic hasn’t suggested anything else but the problem is he tends to only do the minimum required which at times...
  3. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hey all Looking for some help. The engine fan on my 320d comes on about 1 minute after starting the engine and stays on. Even when the engine is turned off, it continues to run for a few minutes.

    I have a 2001 E39 Alpina B10 V8 (M62-based) with 60k miles. No noticeable problems with the cooling system so far. The water pump is the original one and would presumably have the plastic impeller. Question is, is it worth doing any preventative parts replacement of the cooling system at this...

    Hi I have a 523i, early 2006 model. heater failed and only blew out cold air, shortly after the engine started to overheat. So most likely the water pump or thermostat.

    Hi Just had a minor disaster, it appears the bearing gave way on the water pump today, there has been a rattle from the front of the engine for a long will now which was put down to timing chain tensioner? Anyhow the fan blade must have rattled loose from it location, broke 3 blades and the rad...

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. I've recently purchased a BMW 328i SE built October 1995. The best way is for me to list the symptoms and hope one of you has seen this before: -At idle the car does not overheat. Sits in the middle even if ticking for an hour or more. -When driving the car...

    Hello to All, Recently I started a thread looking for info on why my car was getting hot in the sun and whilst stuck in traffic.
