    I installed a Meyle fan clutch along with a new blade last week and it is already defective. Symptoms include high, rough idle, clutch stuck engaged after car becomes hot enough, Loud whining on acceleration. These vids are exactly what I have. Ordered a BEHR today, hopefully it lasts until...

    What to do about broken connectors? My fan exploded and it broke the front aux fan connector as well as the connector for my expansion tank being broken somehow. Is there somewhere that will sell me just little individual connectors? Because knowing that all of them are so brittle I know more...

    Hey, so I've got yet another problem with my car. Recently the car started overheating. Changed the water pump since it was leaking just a bit and also got a new thermostat, since the shop told me that the old one was blocked. After that the car continued to overheat. What I did found out is...

    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 So a while back I did some work on a fuel pump and needed to reset the codes. By accident (not knowing) I reset the codes while the car was on or had was in the ignition position. Afterwards I read I shouldn't have done that. Immediately after I noticed a whirring noise from the fan like...

    I have a quiet but annoying interior noise. Sound like crickets. On start up and sometimes while driving. I am convinced it's the ECU Fan (firewall near your left foot when driving). The noise isn't bad but if it's failing that's I presume a bad thing as I don't want my ECU to overheat. Has...

    Hey guys, I was wondering if a 2002 316i has a clutch fan or an electric fan? If it's a clutch fan, is it hard to switch to a temperature operated electric fan? And how would one do this? Any help is appreciated since I couldn't find any info while googling for it. Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I have a 2006 330ci, 6 speed. Recently the fan got stuck on max constantly. It would even continue to run after the car was shut off. I got tired of plugging it in and out for every drive, so I replaced the fan. Now the fan is constantly on max when the car is on. However it turns off...

    Alright, so the auxiliary electric fan on my M is rattling around. It's bad enough to cause noises in the cabin with the windows up. From what I can tell, the fan is still in one piece but there is play in the motor allowing it to wobble when in use. It needs replaced. So the question is, could...

    when i first started messing with the cooling system i obviously didnt bleed it right and what happened is the system purged itself of air...thru the level sensor on the bottom radiator hose. that was a light on/off issue. Replaced sensor completely (youll hear talk of just replacing the o ring...

    Hi everyone, first post to the forum. I've been lurking for the last few weeks since I bought my first car, an '04 330Ci (and have been trying to fix its problems :cry:) Anyway, I'm having a strange issue with my radiator fan. The first time I had an issue with it was when the car was idling in...

    Hi guys, I have an 00 323Ci and when I got it it need ed the cooling system replaced. So I replaced it and the fan to. Sadly I think I went with an afterror market replacment. The problem I'm having is that it never turns on. Not when I turn ac on or when it gets hot. I checked the fuses today...

    So I just recently bought my 2001 330ci used with 118,000 miles on it. For the first few months it has been running awesome and I've been very happy. Up until this morning when I got in my car to drive home from work. I started my car and it began to thump terribly, putting out little to no...

    Hi guys. I recently bought a manual 328Ci e46 (my first BMW). It has a huge overheating problem, the fan just does not turn, ever. I read a lot of threads on forums, but none of the suggestions worked for me. First I drained the cooling system and bled the system properly with BMW OEM...

    So I have an AC issue that I can’t seem to figure out on my 2002 325i. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve experienced the general fan and air conditioner not working at all in all of my vents. No air whatsoever. This will happen, and then I will leave the car sitting while I go grocery...
