Losing coolant but no leaks on my BMW 5 series 528i. , 2000 model


Look in the radiator for the presence of oil or bubbles. See if water is dripping from the tail pipe. All these indicate the engine is burning the coolant. Look for a blown head gasket or a cracked head.

2001 BMW X5 is leaking coolant and the indicator is reading "check coolant level" where might it be leaking from and will this be expensive to repair?


A ten year old European car is due for a new plastic radiator, so that is the most likely suspect if it has never been replaced. If that is it, the part is about $250 if you buy it on line, or $400 if you buy it at the dealer or through a mechanic shop, plus a couple hours labor.
Realistically, however, if you plan on keeping the car for a long time, or if you let your wife or daughter drive it, you should seriously consider going through the whole cooling system and replacing all the plastic and rubber parts. (all hoses, expansion tank and cap, thermostat, thermostat cover, perhaps the fan clutch, etc) If you don't, that cooling system will be back in your wallet every year for the next 5 years, and the sum of all the repairs will be a lot more than the total bill if you do it all at once.
I drive my BMWs for a quarter-million miles or more, so I accept replacing all the plastic and rubber parts in the cooling system every decade or so as a normal maintenance item. I buy all my parts on line and put them on myself, so it is really not all that expensive for me.
Use BMW branded coolant when you put it back together. You can buy that on line cheaper than getting it from the dealer.

Need to add coolant to my bmw 750li. What type and in what ratio should I mix with water?


Hello,


I am writing to tell you about a new BREAKTHROUGH method for repairing a leaking Coolant Transfer Pipe in the BMW N62 V8 engine block using the BimmerFix Stint. The N62 V8 is a popular BMW engine that was used from 2002 thru 2010, in such fabulous vehicles as the BMW 735i, 740i, 745i, 750i & Li, 645Ci, 650i, 540i, 545i, 550i, and the X5 SUV.


Located deep inside of this BMW N62 engine is a Coolant Transfer Pipe, which carries antifreeze from the Water Pump to cooling chambers within the engine. However, the Front Seal on this Cooling Tube can fail in as little as 40,000 miles, and start leaking antifreeze from the engine block, through a weep hole in the Timing Chain Cover. When this happens, the car will lose antifreeze from the engine, and the engine will overheat.


In the past, this has been a very expensive repair because it required disassembly of the engine, in order to access the leaking Cooling Pipe Seal. The original method of replacing the crossover Coolant Transfer Pipe required the removal of the Timing Chain Cover. This repair could cost $6,000 or more at the BMW Dealer.


Then, an after-market Collapsible Coolant Pipe was developed to save time and money on this repair. This Collapsible Coolant Pipe method involves removing the Intake Manifold, cutting out the old Coolant Pipe and installing the after-market Collapsible Coolant Pipe. But even this method required many hours of shop labor and expensive parts and supplies. The repair bill for this method can still cost between $1,500.00 and $2,500.00 to remove the Intake Manifold, cut out the old Coolant Pipe and install the new Collapsible Coolant Pipe.


However, BimmerFix Products Co. has discovered a BREAKTHROUGH system to stop the leak! The BimmerFix method is much faster and less expensive than these old methods. This simple, yet durable and long lasting method inserts the BimmerFix Stint into the leaking crossover cooling tube, through the Timing Chain Cover. The thin aluminum sleeve creates a long lasting repair that is much easier and less expensive to install than the old repair methods.


The new BimmerFix Stint will stop the Coolant Pipe leak, and only requires the removal of the Water Pump. This new patent protected invention can save YOU or your customer's time, hassle, and thousands of dollars. It works or your money back!


Save time and money! Take a look at www.BimmerFix.com.

I had this same problem in my 02 745i... It's leaking from the internal coolant pipe... a $.05 rubber ring is going to cost you 3-5k easily.

2003 4.4 x5 engine coolant light


@01fordeb: You have to assume the system is dyed before a black light is useful.
Black light dyes are available [cheap] at any parts store.

asker: You may find that the coolant level sensor is defective, covered with gunk or that there is some static electricity built up in the coolant. A mechanic should know how to check for stray current. Also, it may be that a little fluid is going out the overflow because the wrong strength of radiator cap is on there, or the spring is worn out. Replacements are available at any parts store.

HOPE THIS HELPS! Don't forget to rat, please.

It might be an engine problem that my bmw 335 is consuming alot of water in the coolant ? or its a radiator problem ? or the coolant hoses ?


Have a mechanic pressure test your cooling system for leaks (or buy a tester and do it yourself). Check engine oil to make sure no water is getting into your oil due to a cracked head.

I have a coolant leak on my 2000 BMW 528i and now it overheating.


Pressure test cooling system to determine origin of leak. Radiator and coolant reservoirs are common problems. Vehicle is very difficult to purge air from cooling system and may take multiple times of idling until thermostat opens. Sometimes help to rev engine to about 2500 rpm 5-8 times to help build heat and move coolant through system. Must have heater on while performing this task.

Leaking coolant from engine..


Unfortunately, This Problem is Going to Be Either a Blown Head Gasket or a Cracked Block. Just in Case, Check all the Hoses and Check and see if your Model Has a Transmission Cooler Installed, Hopefully on of these is the Culprit. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
