Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
I have the same situation w/ my 2000 740il . On the top of the reservoir their is a bleading screw. Its black plastic with a ( + ) shaped inset. That is the bleading spot. You may have a different resiviour(different year????) Im not sure? It is a very sesitive moter and this is a common problem with them. Dont drive untill its fixed. If you hit the red you will crack a head or two! If its in good shape have it towed to a repair shop.(they have a special tool to bleed them) They tend to trap air even when blead normaly. Its all a big scam , what car has a 150$ thermostat? They got you by the balls, the only safe way is to bring it to a dealership or someone who is specialized on BMW. So if your car is worth anything, have it done right and sadly most mechanics cant.(they dont have t Let alone you or me.

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.
