Engine on my bmw330ci sport convertible keeps overheating it is a 2001 model with only 57000 miles on clock and well looked after


There are 4 things it could be! First your radiator or cooling fan is not turning on, this could be from a fuse. 2nd your thermostat needs replaced about 3-7 dollars for part. 3rd your water pump needs replace..about 150 to 300 dollars..If you can run for more then 10-15 miles then it shouldn't be your water pump. 4th your low on anti-freeze and need to add some into radiator!
Good Luck!
Hope this helps
PS to check fluid level under hood of car, wait until car is cooled to remove cap. And if you were low, you might want to check underneath your car to see if your leaking anywhere...

Overheating and grinding noises


First thing you need to do is zero in on where the coolant is leaking out,and where oil is going. Sure sounding like a head gasket, or worse. What engine& mileage?

1999 GMC Jimmy Running Hot w/ Engine coolant reservoir empty


I guess the burning question is , where is the coolant going.
Is this a 4.3 engine? How many miles does the vehicle have?
Has the intake gasket been changed?
I'm guessing a can of "Bars Leak" may cure your problem.
Let me know.

1993 Toyota Tercel overheating when driving only


Make sure the radiator is clear of debris
Try a different coolant. Stay away from the Red stuff
When changinging the thermostant go for a 180 or less. It sounds like your thermostat open when it really heats up. Get a lower thermostat.
