  1. General E46 Forum
    My car started to overheat yesterday while in traffic, this is after a whole cooling system update about 10k miles ago, new fluid, water pump, radiator, therm etc. So I was pretty positive it was not related to anything that was replaced, but I checked everything and water pump was working, and...

    Hello friends. I want to know your opinion on the pros and cons of going electric fan and removing clutch fan. My clutch fan has 2 fins missing (last owner cut them off for some unknown reason) which is causing my clutch fan to be extremely loud. I'm either going to replace the clutch fan or...

    Hey all, About this time last year I started having over heating problems as my car was reaching 100k miles. I thought it was just the cooling system starting to fail so I started off by replacing the radiator which for some reason solved the over heating problem so I didn't give it any...

    I continually get comments from friends saying that my car sounds like a turbine engine as I drive up. I'm new to the car ('02 E46 M3 SMG) but being somewhat of a car guy I had noticed that the radiator fan/s is/are loud but didn't know if that was normal. I had a CEL yesterday so I ran diag...

    I just recently bought a 2002 325i 5MT for a second car. Once I started driving it the Silverado has been sitting a bunch and it has quickly become my number one car. So the car overheats.

    Just bought the car, Black on Black 330xi, manual trans. This is my first BMW. The vehicle was in a front-end collision and rebuilt, it has a salvage title. It passed MD inspection needing only rear rotors and has been my daily driver for the last two weeks. I found it sitting under a tree...

    I took my car into the shop recently to replace a (very) leaky coolant expansion tank (Yes, I know this is an easy DIY, but unfortunately my current living situation does not have adequate space mpr light to preform any sort of maintenance). While they had the fan removed to replace the tank, I...
