There are a number of sealants out there. They all claim to fix blown head gaskets, cracked blocks and even the common cold. In over 30 yrs in the business, I have yet to see anything that works. BMW engines are not inexpensive. Don't mess with it. Likely you will only do more damage. I know the repair won't be cheap, but at least it will be drivable afterwards! Good luck!!

Check your engine oil...you know...do an oil change....this way you are only paying for oil....if you have a blown head gasket....don't worry about the filter.

    I forgot to tell you....look for radiator fluid in your oil.

Labor time head gasket


it is not only the replacement of the gasket, they most of the time need to flatten the head. That will cost. If the head is not flat, you will most likely blow out the next gasket to, within a few miles.

White smoke coming from rear on 2003 745i


Could be your cylinder head gasket has blown. Check your water and oil, have they mixed and are the levels down. If so you need to replace the gasket. Don't run it again until you're sure. It could wreck your engine.

I'm about to buy a 2002 16 valve BMW 318 ci (coupe) just wanna know how should I know that the engine is in good condition and what should I inspect in the engine and how to see whether its fine or not...


Check the oil before you start it, it should be dark but clean. Inspect oil for metal debris/shavings, that indicates improper engine wear. Also if the oil seems gunky or milky looking, walk away, there is a possibility that there may be engine damage such as a broken head or head gasket. Check the radiator or radiator tank reservoir for milky residue which will also point to a broken head or head gasket, it should be clean orange or green looking water depending on the type of antifreeze used. Last, turn it on and remove the oil fill cap and feel for excessive blow by. If you feel air coming out of the engine when you put your hand over the fill tube/hole, then leave it. There should be very minor blow by, but if it looks like it's ready to inflate a balloon, walk away.

My 745i has gas and batterty power but it will not start.


The 2002 BMW 745I has a recall when the gas goes under a third of gas it will shut off and not start cause it thinks it has no gas. You can call BMW and they will check if your car is on the recall list and you can get it fixed for free. Or they told me to just take it to the BMW dealership and tell them.

2004 745i needs a new engine. Is it worth paying


WHY do you need a new engine for the car,whats wrong with it as no engine is worth throwing away and a BMW it worth doing it up as even a 318i is worth doing up etc as the body is worth selling if 100%and the engine is worth doing so dont be a mug.

I have a 2003 745i BMW Transmission


Check the fluid level in the tranny. If that is good try servicing the tranny with a new filter if that dosen't work I would think that the torque converter may be acting up.

BMW 745I 2002 wiper dead


there are several things that can cause the wipers in your car not to work. if you have verified the fuses are good and verified power to your wiper motor, I would try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 15 minutes, then checking operation of the wipers. by the way, which fuses did you check?
