Y would water be coming out the bk of my bmw engine and making it steam


In cold weather some steaming is normal as a cold engine warms up. Otherwise, it sounds like a blown head gasket.

I own a 1993 BMW 318i and the fan in the front of


I assume you mean the radiator fan. This might be indicative of a different problem. The main issue is, does the car overheat? If not, then it's probably a thermostat that's stuck open. A lot of things can fail in the fan system...the fan motor itself, a fuse, a relay, or the temperature sensor that tells the fan to turn on.

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.


I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
