    My 2000 328i is averaging 9 -99 C on hot days with AC on and off. Is 99 C too hot? What are people’s average temps? I did the entire cooling system (including radiator), no leaks. Could someone maybe give me some mental peace and help me figure this out?

    So I was driving on the freeway and randomly the coolant light came on, I pulled over and checked the level and it was full. I got back on the freeway and the light came off, the car didn’t over heat or anything. Could it be because it’s extremely hot today or something serious?

    Hello, I've got a 01 330xi (M54) that is running hot. I have an OBDII Scanner and OBD Fusion application. I just installed a brand new radiator and Upper and Lower hoses (Gates) and have probably used 10 gallons of antifreeze trying to keep it cooled down enough so I don't ruin the engine...

    Hey everybody. So I have a 2000 323i automatic that just won't behave. A couple of days ago I was driving home and overheated. A surprise since last summer I replaced the expansion tank, radiator, and hoses. Got the car towed home refilled with coolant and she held everything without spilling a...

    So I have done what I think to be all the troubleshooting possible regarding a e46 323i. I replaced the bad fusible link. BAM I have a hot wire now. Fan still didnt work. It only worked when I unplugged the coolant temp sensor. So I unhooked my battery to reset my computer and now it doesnt want...

    Hi, I did changed my interior bulbs to led's and they look great...but they needed resistors and at the moment it's hanging by the passenger footwell. Any good places to put it? It seems to get extremely hot so I don't want to stick it inside of the footwell light. I was thinking about screwing...

    I have a 2001 318i M-Tech When the climate control temp is at its lowest (16 degrees celcius), I get warm air coming out, when I turn on 'Auto' the air turns cooler, as cool as I would expect it to be normally. Then when I turn on the AirCon it gets even colder as you would expect. The trouble...

    My 2001 5spd 100,800mile 330cic e46 seems to be having this very random problem with stalling. As of 2011 it has happened to me twice already. The car will be driving fine and then all of a sudden it will lose 90% of it's power. Then as I stop (for fear of damaging the car) it will just die...

    My 323i is blowing HOT air from the center vents and after about 5 minutes the air finally begins to turn cold. It is in the 90s outside. Needless to say this is very annoying. I have replaced the hot water valve. The 134a refrigerant is cooling well once the vents quit pouring out the heat...

    I've searched extensively and haven't found anything matching my problem. My car is an '02 330i 5spd. I've had it since July and haven't had any problems with it at all through the hottest summer days. Now that it's getting cool, I noticed the first time the heat came on, my temp gauge went...

    Hey, I replaced my thermostat because my car threw a SES about low coolant and the thermostat. I replaced it, hoping it would fix that and fix my heating problem. However, my heat problem remains, and as I drive my car, the engine temp goes from mid (12 o'clock) headed back to cold. I was...
