SOURCE: i need instructions to install a clutch fan on 1987 bmw

The fan/clutch assy has left hand thread. Loosen by turning clockwise.

Remove radiator top shroud & air cleaner assy. to gain access.
Remove engine cooling fan by holding the belt drive pulley with a suitable flat bar tool (that fits over the top of the drive pulley attachment bolts), then using a suitable flat spanner to unscrew the fan clutch assy (clockwise). When re-fitting, tighten clutch nut to 30 ftlb.
You may need to use a bit of ingenuity in making the flat bar holding tool, unless you are able to procure the BMW tool #11.5.030.
Good luck

SOURCE: bmw e46 battery light comes on intermitantly

One of the wires in the circuit is loose, or a fused link is defective. Check all fasteners and connectors to make sure they are secure. Spray a small amount of lithium grease on the connectors to ensure that they connect fully - your intermittent problem is due to intermittent contact.

SOURCE: My BMW 330i is still running hot after replacing

It could be several reasons...1. make sure you dont have to bleed the coolant system, on some cars you have too, because there is air in the system, and the car will overheat..2. Your waterpump maybe bad also..3. Double check your coolant temp sensor, and or coolant temp switch..maybe faulty..4. Check your radiator cap...seal could be bad, and not sealing correctly...Question..How long does it take before it overheats...and are you getting any white or grey smoke out of the tailpipe? If so, then your head gasket is blown...Goodluck

is the cooling fan cutting in ? run the engine whilst stationary with the hood up , give it a little gas 2000revs and wait for the temp gauge to rise ,the cooling fan should be heard cutting in , and off again once cooled the engine temp down ,this may take 10-15 mins but you have to be sure the fan is cutting in or you may cook the engine

I have a 1994 bmw 525i series it is over heating with a new waterpump and thermostat


Suspect #1 - air in cooling system. These can require several bleeding attempts to get all the air out. If the overflow reservoir is old and cracked inside, it will keep getting air back into the system.
Suspect #2 - radiator plugged internally with mineral deposits from hard water or silicates from using the wrong coolant. Does the radiator feel hot all over when the car is hot?
Suspect #3 - radiator plugged externally with organic material or the hair from the long haired cat that sleeps in your garage. Put a light behind the radiator and see how well you can see through it from the front grill.
Suspect #4 - failed fan clutch and/or failed electric fan. Does the overheating happen on the highway, or only when stopped or moving slowly? Does the electric fan kick on whenever the air conditioning compressor kicks on? The most common failure point on the electric fan is the relay.
A defective new thermostat is possible but unlikely.

Driving home last night, the temperature guage fluctuated wildly between mid-range, max then back to mid. Fan came on for a long time once the car had stopped. I topped up the coolant as this was low but...


Sounds like fan belt is slipping. When it slips waterpump doesn't spin fast enough to circulate coolant. Also if there's an air pocket in cooling system it'll give similar symptoms.

MY HOT AND COLD METER KEEPS RISING AND FALLING


If the fans are electric, then replace the fan control module.
If the fan is belt driven, replace the fan clutch.

There is a chance that the thermostat is failing, but if the temperature fluctyation occurs during driving, as opposed to stopped and idling, then it's probably the fans.

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading
