Question about 1997 BMW 328

3 Answers

1996 328IS, Over heating after 25 minutes of idling,

I have replaced the radiator, thermostat, water pump, fans are working, except blower for heater. after idling 20 to 25 minutes the coolant start pushing out the bleeder hole and temp guage climbs to hot. There is no oil in the radiator and no water in the oil? could the head gasket be bad? or cracked head? Please advise I have been working on this all week and did not want to pull the head until last resort.
Thank you
Manny

It's is the air that was left in engine after being burped. Must burp out every little air bubble. Relieve air by opening valve on too of raidiator. Also put heater on full blast as you burp.

Did you bleed the coolant lines? Mine was still overheating after replacing water pump, thermostat, and coolant temp sensor. Bleed lines, runs cool no more overheating. 1995 Camaro Z28

Why is my heat or air is not blowing and car is running hot


How hot is the engine running in degrees f? Does the radiator fan run?
With hvac turned on, check voltage and ground at the blower motor. If good voltage and ground, suspect the blower motor is faulty.

I replaced my 2004 Nissan radiator and thermostat still over heating , any ideas?


Is the thermostat installed up side down. That does happen sometimes and will cause that.
Is the radiator a new one if not could be plugged and won't let the antifreeze flow.
Is the water pump functioning right. Check your belts as well.
Is the fluid in the rad up where it should be. Low fluid will cause the water pump to not work. Just thoughts of what would cause your problem.

There are other things to test before we have the engine spread all over the yard. Cooling fan operation. Yes the thermostat hot air in heater just means hot water. start with a cold engine then start and run at a high idle if heats quickly upper radiator hose hot lower cold good but reverse no flow. remove and test thermostat (not replace) put on stove boil water and watch it open once center piece is moving check with thermometer it should agree with stamp number on thermostat. if good check for slipping fan belt. check for air restrictions on radiator and water flow.

disconnect the heat hoses going into fire wall , put hose into one with pressure and flush as it sounds like it could be bloked in the heater core,the other thing that could be the problem be the hot ,cold switch as it restricts the flow to makes the heater hoter or colder , it might need tlc or replacing as it is manaul not elec

Dodge caravan heat fan won't work


If it is the fan/blower that is not working (as opposed to what is coming out is cold), then the problem could be 1) fuse 2) Blower Resistor. I just replaced the blower resistor in about 15 min with a $25 replacement resistor. The unit is right behind the glove box.

If the problem is that the air coming out is cold and not hot, then the thermostat, radiator, heater core, etc... are the more likley causes.

It could be the fan temp. switch but it shouldn't have been boiling in the overflow tank. I'd recommend doing a compression test to see if you have a blown head gasket. If it's a blown head gasket, the compressed air/fuel mix being force into the cooling system could well look like boiling in the over flow tank.
