You need antifreeze too. Did you fix it yourself or did you take it to a qualified, certified, mechanic?

SOURCE: overheating problem on a 1998 BMW 318ti

Perform a liquid block test (with the bottle of fluid over the radiator mouth.) If the blue liquid turns yellow or clear, you have hydrocarbons entering the cooling system (usually via head gskt.) If not, you have ruled out a costly repair.

Sounds like it overheats pretty easily, without t-stat! This block testing liquid is cheap, and will verify a suspected leaking head gasket without lengthy diagnosis. Hope it's better news, but good luck!

SOURCE: Radiator antifreeze

There is a drain plug on the left hand side on the pipe that goes into the radiator. This is about the lowest physical point so ensures you drain as much as possible. Whilst empty, take out and check / clean the terminals on the water level sensor which is attached to the side of the header tank.

My bmw 120i over heating so how can i fix it


Check the coolant at the radiator and the overflow. Add 50/50 mix of water and antifreeze if it is low. If that only temporarily fixes the problem, it means that there is a leak somewhere. Most likely the water pump will have to be replaced, but it could be a leaky radiator, radiator hose, or heater core hose. If the radiator is full of coolant, make sure the fan belt is on, and is tight, or that the electric fan comes on if it has an electric driven fan. If all of these items check out good, replace the thermostat.

How do I fix this coolant leak?


This could be a hose or a radiator leak.

And antifreeze is supposed to be bright green or pink for a car of that age. Brown is never a good color for antifreeze--it means car was run with too little antifreeze for a significant period of time and the block and water pump has rusted internally. This is not a threat to the engine block, but it will kill the water pump eventually.

Find the leak, and take appropriate action--if it's a hose, you can replace that yourself and save $. If it's the radiator or even heater core (not likely), it's a trip to the shop for sure, unless you are able to handle the degree of difficulty that goes along with replacing a radiator (about 6-7 on a 10-scale, and usually a major hassle). A radiator shop can fix the leak, saving you new radiator $.

If you are sure the water isn't leaking somewhere - run the car stationary and look for spots on the floor - then is lost thru evaporation. Look at the caps of the radiator and the state of the expansion bowl.

check the water level in the radiator and in the expasion tank,
I reckon the thermostat has failed (very very likely).
http://auto.howstuffworks.com/cooling-system8.htm

when it fails it never opens to circulate water to the radiator, if this is true your temp gauge will read HOT but the radiator will be quite cool compared to the engine. ------ Thermostat is around $60 / £48 from BMW only!!, a non-bmw part is false economy and will invalidate your warranty.

If you smell antifreeze inside the cab then it will going to be a heater core leak.

Use white paper and see if the fluid green (or same color as you radiator coolant.

ID the fluid is VERY IMPORTANT right now.

Condensation fluid from AC is just water.

There is a condenser drain behind the dash (near center). The passage way can be clogged and water may spill out on sharp let or right turn,

ID the color of the fluid first.

Monitor the coolant fluid level. If it goes do the look for the source of the leak.


DON'T WAIT.
