First remove and check the bottle for cracks in the bottom and sides . Have a coolant system pressure test done and have a compression test done for head gasket and cracks. Have the radiator cap tested for correct operation

SOURCE: Oil Leaks

I did an engine swap because of a rod knock and when I removed the power steering pump the seal was upset and would not seal again. I found a guy on the internet who had a kit for under $75 shipping included (sorry can't remember sight name). This kit comes with a new improved two lip seal, couple o-rings, gasket, home made tools, and a video showing how to install the new seals. I installed the kit and it fixed the leak in about 3 hours. The dodge dealer wants $1100.00 for a rebuilt vacumme pump. Do a google for power steering leak.This is a very common problem even for a pump that has not been removed.

SOURCE: bmw 728i over heating problem

The thermostat and water pump are both common failure points on BMW 6-cyl engines of this era. I would recommend checking the thermostat first, then moving on to the water pump. If the vehicle has overheated several times, you may need to remove the cylinder head and have it checked for warp.

SOURCE: how to change screen washer bottle on a bmw e90

to access the windscreen bottle, you have to take off the front wheel, wheelarch and dicconnect filler tube. Using 10 mm socket take off one bolt holding the bottle. To reinstall take off side indicator to make it easy for you.
for E90 model it is normal to have leak when the bottle is full. the water is coming out from breather on top of bottle. but if the fluid is complately drain, then there's something wrong with it.

It sounds like you have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket, the combustion gas causes the coolant tank to pressurize and that is what you see.

Either a freeze plug or a head gasket is leaking back there. The freeze plug looks like a large metal bottle cap without threads, with the flat part pushed into the block first.

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.

I have a 1996 Honda civic, it spits out water at the radiator after running for 10 minutes. What can I do?


If the radiator is leaking, put a bottle of radiator stop leak in it,fill it up the rest of the way with water, tighten cap, and run in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. If the leak is severe or one bottle doesn't work, use two bottles of stop leak and run for 35 minutes.

If it's the radiator cap that's leaking, replace the cap with a new one. Also check to make sure there are no loose cooling hoses.

Safety first: Use extreme caution to never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot, severe burns from escaping hot water could result.
