I recently purchased a 2006 330i. She's a beautiful ride, but has recently started having issues. Driving home the other night my engine overheating indicator light came on. After that the car wouldn't accelerate past 3200rpm. This morning I checked my coolant level and it was just about bone dry. This is after I just filled it up about a month ago. I'm not seeing any evidence of a leak either. What could be the issue??

Check for codes and have your water pump looked at. Just had mine replaced, similar symptoms.

Yeah I would say water pump, and while your doing that do the thermostat. Because it will also fail sooner than you think.

How many miles your 330 have?

Its pump fail most likely, won't be cheap unless u diy it. Even then it won't be cheap.
