Have a coolant pressure test done to determine for leaks in the system. have a compression test done to determine head gasket or cracks.. Check radiator cap is holding the set pressure and is opening to admit water back from the reservoir on cooling. Check hose from radiator to reservoir is tight with no cracks in it.

SOURCE: 'low coolant"

Inside the surge tank is a float that turns on the "low coolant" light. As the float gets gummed up it gets stuck in the low position. I've had good luck in cleaning the surge tank out really well and ungummed the float so it slides up and down like it should.

SOURCE: Low Coolant light

Sounds like your sensor unit in your coolant overflow tank. Like nearly everything man made that floats, they will eventually leak (become water logged). This is a relatively cheap fix, as long as the light is coming on and the coolant level in the overflow tank is between the MIN and MAX lines in the overflow tank. This means that the float in there is dropping below the actual fluid level (watter logged) and you need to get a replacement sensor unit (aka sending unit) for the overflow tank.

Otherwise, if the coolant level in the overflow tank IS BELOW the MIN level line on the tank, then you are losing coolant somewhere and that is when things start to get expensive (might be a radiator problem, head gasket, cylinder head, heater core, etc).

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times.

There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

Cheers
Sean

SOURCE: BMW 318 ci coolant light comes on then goes off -

more than likely is being caused by a faulty level sensor but first check the connection and fluid level when engine is cold as fluid level will rise when engine warms up

Coolent light has come up on dashboard.what does it mean.


not that familiar with bmw's to know if you have a separate coolant LEVEL light as well as a temp light. so, if you have both then it is a level sensor tell you your coolant is low. add a mixture of 50/50 antifreeze(you can but this at most any auto store) to you coolant overflow tank. run engine until it is warm and then let it cool off. *** it cools it will draw coolant back into the radiator until it is full.it may take more than once to get it full. when you are full you should have about 1/4 of the overflow filled when the engine is cold. If you do NOT have the second light then it is telling you the engine is starting to overheat, which is for the same reason just more critical. do the same thing but make sure you do not have a busted hose or other leak, and that your engine is not putting out white smoke. if either of these then let me know. otherwise it is probably just evaporated over time.

I have a service symbol that appears on my dash which looks like a rectangle filled half way with water and a spout on the top what does it mean?


hi, this is the warning for low coolant level it may need topping up so check this before your car over heats, over heating can cause the head gasket to go witch would cost thousands to get repaired.

DOES THE 2006 750LI TRUNK FIT THE 2004 745LI TRUNK ? I BELIEVE IT WILL.


I do not know if they will interchange; however, the BMW trunk lid part number changed in March 2005 according to www.realoem.com. You try a part for part comparison. There are more parts to the 750LI trunk.
