SOURCE: I have a coolant leak on my 2000 BMW 528i and now it overheating.

Pressure test cooling system to determine origin of leak. Radiator and coolant reservoirs are common problems. Vehicle is very difficult to purge air from cooling system and may take multiple times of idling until thermostat opens. Sometimes help to rev engine to about 2500 rpm 5-8 times to help build heat and move coolant through system. Must have heater on while performing this task.

SOURCE: 2000 bmw 528i overheating

The only way a heater core can cause overheating is if it's leaking and the engine is low on antifreeze. To check it for leaks it would help to use a cooling system pressure tester.

SOURCE: AC stopped working and not responding to controls

You might want to check the outside ambient temperature sensor, located in the right front wheel well, when these become damaged, the dash temp reading might say somewhere around -44degF if this is the case replace the sensor and things should be okay.

I have a 1997 bmw 528i and its constantly overheating also theres a lot of thick white smoke that coming from the tail pipe. What could the problem be?


Unfortunately, you are experiencing two of the classic signs of a bad head gasket. Have the coolant checked with a test kit from your favorite auto parts store to verify this. I would check the radiator coolant regularly to verify coolant loss. Sometimes engine cooling system designs can allow for a bad hose to come in contact with the exhaust and make smoke out of the tail pipe so have all of the hoses checked too.
Hope this helps.

1997 528i doesn't shift between 1st and 2nd but if I shift to S3 and back to Drive it shifts


Hi,
I had the same problem with my 1997 528i also. After doing a little research and talking to some mechanics that told me to replace the neutral safety switch located on the side of the transmission. I got the switch from BMW dealer and it cost around $300. After installing it the transmission shifted like new.
