    General E46 Forum
    Let me start by saying I drive a 2000 BMW 323i. So while I'm driving my check engine light sometimes turns on, and after no more than a minute will turn off.

    General E46 Forum
    I had a major coolant leak on the freeway. Low coolant light came on then temp gauge started creeping up. Fortunately, I was close to home, & after (slowly) adding coolant 3 times, got it back into my garage without overheating. Found a 4" long crack in the expansion tank. Removed tank &...
