Mixing water oil in bmw 320d e46 pre face lift. I see oil in radiator bottle cap

Tappet cover is cracked And oil coming out from there also. Car was losing water .i changed the hose pipe. But it still carry on. I tried nt leak and it worked. But after 7 days water bottle light came on again. I open the bottle and I saw cream kind thing on the cap. I put another nt leak in radiator again. It looks ok now. But I am worried if it's not head gas kit. And it might cause more damage to engine. There is no smoke or over heating at all. Car loses power when going up the hill.

SOURCE: Water not staying in Radiator

yes, not having an overflow reservoir for your radiator will cause you to lose water. As your engine warms up the water expands and creates pressure in the cooling system. When the pressure reaches a certain point(usually about 15 psi.) the radiator releives the pressure by releasing water into the overflow tank. When the engine cools back down the water shrinks pulling water back into the radiator from the overflow. If there is no overflow, the everytime the engine warms up on a drive water will be lost and not recovered on cooldown.

I have just replaced my water pump,radiator and radiator cap on my BMW 93 ,318 i but if i dont drive with the air con on the temp gauge goes to red and the motor cooks. The water in the radiator is boiling...


You say water, do you actually mean coolant?
Or are you putting straight water into it?
You may need to check the mixing level.
It should have a mix of 50/50.
50% water and 50% antifreeze/coolant.
Lot's of coolants will come pre-diluted, which is usually always the best way to go.

I hope this helps!

Bmw m44 engines heavy water loss


If your car is loosing coolant, there might be an exterior leak, or an interior leak. First check and make sure that radiator cap is tight and the rubber sealer is intact, there can be many other reasons ...hole in the coolant hose, leaking radiator, heater core, water pump, intake manifold and more... Check and see if there is any puddle of coolant on the ground, if so you can find where the coolant is coming from.
There must be an internal leak, a blown cylinder head gasket. See if the bottom of the oil cap looks like somebody spit on it, if so then coolant mixing with the oil, when the engine is running see if there is any white smoke at tail pipe. If engine overheats, and there are air bubbles in the coolant bottle "boiling", this could indicate a bad cylinder head gasket too.

My bmw 316i coupe 1998 is overheating


Good point above. Does the fan come on?

If you have no heat, you have air in the heater core.

You say the head gasket is ok because yoou have no oil in the water. Many times the head gaqsket blows combustion into the cooling system only. Get the car up to temp with the radiator cap off, put it in gear, hold the brake and load the engine. If you have a lot of bubblls out of the radiator, you have a blow heade gasket or cracked head.

Check the ignitin timing. Old BMW's would overheat in a heart beat with retarded Ignition timing.

My bet is head gasket because the heater core is air bound

good luck
