Hi Guys,

I have a 2003 520i ES which has done 35k miles, the car once upto temperature keeps blowing the bottom radiator pipe off on the drivers side and loses all coolant :(

It takes a while to get upto temperature aswell, what could be causing this?

Thanks

Is the pipe and where it attatches damaged in anyway?? inc inside the pipe??

Are you sure the pipe is on over the ridge properly?? If the pipes on properly pressure shouldn't blow it off unless your relief valve is damaged??

The pipe doesn't appear damaged, I can't see if the rad is damaged.

I've pushed the pipe on very firmly before locking with clip but still blows off, where is the relief valve?

Thanks
