Question about 2001 BMW 325

1 Answer

Overheated engine I have a 2001 BMW 325i and recently ran it hot, really hot. There is no water in the oil, but it is now running very bad and smoking (white smoke) from the tail pipe. I have not had any luck finding someone to rebuild the engine. So, I am thinking about maybe trying to find a low mileage engine. Again it has been difficult finding a mechanic for this BMW.

Hi i would say have ago at rebuilding this yourself, Get a Haynes Manual for the car and that will tell you everything you need to know, The hardest part for you would be getting the timing correct and tightening the head bolts correctly (all in the manual tho) Look at it this way if it all goes wrong you wanted to get a second hand engine anyway, and you will learn alot in the process, Dont forget if you need any help along the way people are here to help, Good luck if you go for it, Steve

My 325i is smoking alot


Depending on what color it is, you could have to much fuel, or a coolant leak, or oil in your engine.


Blue typically means Oil
White usually means coolant
black smoke usuall means fuel.

93 bmw 325i series,water dipping from behind tranmissionrun hot


  • SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A HEAD JOB. CRACKED HEAD OR NEED A HEAD GASKET. CHECK YOUR ENGINE OIL IF IT HAS WATER IN IT OR IF WATER IS LEAKING OUT OF TAIL MUFFLER ITS A CRACKED HEAD. IF NOT ITS HEAD GASKET. ANOTHER THING WHICH COULD BE IS FIRST MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER PUMP IS NOT LEAKING WATER CUZ IF IT IS THEN IT WILL BE THAT. SOMETIMES RUNNING YOUR VEHICLE WITH A BROKE WATER PUMP HEATS UP ENGINE CAUSING HEADS TO CRACK WHEN FILLING WITH WATER BUT USUALLY THE HEAD GASKET GOES FIRST. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Sounds like a fuel problem , have you changed the fuel filter in a while ? could be the knock sensor or the knock sensor module needs to be replaced.

2001 bmw 325i only blows cold on driver side and hot on passager


hey ic, sounds like your refrigerant is low. if you have a low charge it will usually get you slight cool air on the driver's side. have the system checked and make sure you have a full charge. also, be careful about running it low on charge, the refrigerant has oil in it that keeps the compressor lubricated.
