Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

BMW 323i overheated, pulled over, cooled engine. Now won't start.

Is there some kind of safety that needs to be reset or something? It's acting like the battery is dead. I tried jumping it but the tachometers just blink rapidly when I turn the key. HELP!!!

The battery is very weak, u will need to replace it , u should carry out a drop test or check the voltage at the terminals, the check the voltage at the wires to the alternator and starter, if the vlotage is below 12 volts, u need a new battery, if there is a difference between the terminals and the starter/ alternator, then there is a problen with the wiring, possibllity a bad earth, bad or loose connection or a short circuit

My 1999 Kia Sportage overheated. I pulled over to let it cool. Now it won't start. Is there a reset switch? Where is it located


There is no reset switches on cars. Have you let is cool sufficiantly? You may have a blown head gasket and this caused the overheating and if it is bad then you can be sucking too much air in the engine to get it started or worse water could be getting in. Have this checked out,

Overheating: 1999 bmw 323i m series 2.5 ..Installed: new water pump , thermostat. radiator,new Water Reservoir, cap.. hose on top side hot , lower hose cold even when engine is hot..no water circulating at...


the water pump and thermostat should have solved it. an air pocket can cause that but usually not to that degree.

don't get one of those cheap *** plastic impeller water pump for sissies. Get the metal impeller one. get a cool running thermostat and drill two 3/16" holes in it 180 degreess from each other. you may have installed the t-stat backwards.

Loud rattle from engine and overheating


I wonder why the overheating caused you to change the engine instead of checking with the cooling system. Some time back my 323i overheated and coolant expansion tank burst open, but that probably due to ignoring the coolant level low light for a couple of days. I replaced the coolant expansion tank, thermostat and few hoses connected with the tank and it worked fine for me.
Try to check you coolant level - may be you should have replaced your water pump and not the engine.

As I was driving my 2000 bmw 323i, the battery light came on, the car started smoking and the steering wheel locked up. What is going on?


Sounds like a belt let go, but other items could come in to play here, such as. : Seized idler pulley, seized alternator, etc. Obviously you need to have it checked out. Did you notice if engine overheated, that would be the one that would worry me.
