Question about 2001 BMW 330

2 Answers

How much would it cost to replace a 2001 BMW 330i radiator? It has been leaking each time i would replace the coolant, and in the meantime i've been just replacing it with water so the car wouldn't overheat. I'd just like to know if there is any other way i can fix it, but i've heard i just need to get it replaced. Thank you!

You can get the tanks removed & the core cleaned out at a radiator specialist for around 1/2 to 2/3 the cost of a new one
dont forget to have them flush the engine too!
& replace the hoses& clamps aswell as the thermostat! otherwise its a waisted effort & $$$$$ because old gunk could block the recoed radiator

The new radiator for your car is about $140.00 shipped from www.rockauto.com, here is the part number.
PROLIANCE or SPECTRA PREMIUM Part # 432528, Coolant required is 2 gallons $25.00
the install time is about 1.5 hours, so the job if you supply the part and coolant would run about $325.00, if the shop supplies the parts about $425-$450.00

Pressure from the water bottle in the morning at startup


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.

I have a 2004 BMW 330i and have replaced everything in the coolant system, and my vehicle is still leaking coolant out the expansion tank, or the cap where you add coolant to the radiator. I have use OEM...


We have had some similar problems with some BMW's,the last one we replaced the expansion tank.Before we attached the upper radiator hose to the radiator we filled the engine with antifreeze through the hose.Install the hose and fill your expansion tank to the proper level and run the engine to operating temperature.

I put too much coolant into my 2001 BMW 330i and need help!!!


Look on the upper hose. There should be a plastic srew and you should have a srew right next to the cap. I had these on my 2000 528i. Hopefully you did not blow up the coolant bottle which is usually the weakest link on these. Blow into the the radiator thru the radiator cap to see if it holds pressure..

If it doesnt then you will need to replace something first. If everything looks ok open the screws, the lowest one first then the upper one. That is if you have 2.

Then you may need to run the engine up to temp then shut the car off and let it cool off. Each time open the bottle and check the level. You may need to do this a couple times or more.

First coulple times you drive the car have some coolant with you in case it starts to overheat. Keep an eye on the temp. Especially in the first several miles.

My 2002 BMW 330i is going thorough coolant there is dried white looking coolant around the reservoir.


Sounds like it is overheating, this can be due to a stuck thermostat, a non-functioning radiator fan, or a blown headgasket. This system also requires bleeding when filled. If you do not have good experience with vehicle repair, I would take it to a reputable BMW repair facility. Hope this helps, let me know

I got 2001 bmw 330i series, had a leak at radiator, replace radiator, reservior and thermostat, is overheating after repairs, i thing there is an air pocket, found bleeding screw at reservior, but did not...


if you replaced the thermostat thats actually connected to the engine and not the thermostat thats underneath the expansion tank/reservoir, I would recommend filling the expansion tank to the top remove bleeder screw and allow the vehicle to sit keeping coolant filled to the top of reservoir, once you feel there is no more air in system reinstall bleeder screw and correct fluid level in expansion tank. There are a couple different tools that are used to properly bleed the system. one tool you can pull a vacuum on the system and when the vacuum is released coolant is pulled back into system. At the same time you could have a blown head gasket. There is also a tool out there to check for combustion gases in your cooling system which would be a signs of a blown head gasket. Another recommendation is to pick up a cooling system pressure tester (can be picked up as a loan a tool @ autozone) usually pressurizing the system will help to remove air pockets
