Question about 2005 BMW X5
My X5 overheats everytime i start the car and it runs for a while.....especially if the AC is on.......if i add the radiator coolant...its still the same thing.....it dries up the water. I also have a problem with my washers for the wipers........they don't bring out water when i engag them, even though the container is full with water.....Finally my wiper at the back dosen't work too.
If you are adding coolant and are not seeing a leak, your leak may be internal to the engine (not good). ie. Blown head gasket or cracked head. Check your oil for signs of water, ie milky looking oil on dipstick or rising oil level even though you didn't add oil. Also do a pressure check of coolant system. If it dosn't hold pressure you have a leak someware. Get it fixed ASAP or else say good by to your engine. Also have your water pump and cooling fans ckecked as well. Don't run the AC until its fixed, it just makes the cooling system work harder. As far as the washers, the front and rear use the same container, have the pump checked as well as fuse for the pump and wipers.
