    Afternoon/morning to whoever is reading this. I’m new to this forum and I was wondering what are the possible reasons my car is still overheating.

    A few months ago I had a little scare with overheating. It turns out one of the coolant lines was loose and resulted in coolant leaking out.

    I recently bought the OEM coolant for my 330i. Like the noob i am, i only added the coolant into the radiator reservoir. Is this something that will cause my engine to overheat? when i pop the hood to see what the smoke is coming from, the reservoir is smoking. I later read that i should mix the...

    my car started overheating the other day so i checked for leaks and didn't see any. I let it cool down then drove it to a nearby friends and it overheated again so i shut it off and coasted to where i could pull over. This time steam was coming from a broken expansion tank cap. I got it towed...
