You obviously have a leak somewhere. Check the radiator hoses and heater lines for seepage. It is passable you may have a head gasket problem. If you pull the plugs and see one white or a lot lighter than the rest it could be water ingestion in that cylinder. But check all the hoses first.

Cooling system

Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

How do I replace the feul pump on my 1988 BMW 735i 6-cyl?

Remove your trunk mat and spare tyre. You can access fuel pump through plate in the trunk. Don't need to drop tank. Check fuses and relays first.

I have bmw 735i v8 2000 only one of the four heater outlets blows hot air the rest blow cold also can hear water sound when i rev car but when heater is of their is no sound when i rev car

the first thing to do is check for low coolant level,the next thing to look at would be the blend door actuators, you may have a bad actuator, this is what controls the temp, by opening and closing the hot/cold door, if this is not working you will not be able to control the setting,this car has a few ,daul zone control also has a few, these are located under the dash on the heaterbox, but test them first, to make sure control is sending current when command to do so.

1990 BMW 735i: oil in the coolant reservoir

If your car is an automatic there would be lines from the transmission to the rad to cool the transmision fluid. Over time the lines inside the rad have been known to corrode and start leaking. This would put oil in your coolant. You would be looking for small steel lines going in and out that would trace back to the transmission. Hope this helps.
