Question about 2007 BMW 750Li Sedan

1 Answer

My 735 IL ran out of gas

My problem started with a leaking radiator. I replaced it today with a new one and was running it to warm it up to test the radiator connections. I didnt notice that i was almost out of gas. I went to accelerate the engine and it stopped running. I noticed then it was out of gas. Since then Ive put 2 1/2 gallons and still no re-start and its taking its effect on the battery. Any suggestions? Mike

    Im pretty sure it works. It was working just before it ran out of gas! Ill double check to be sure. Is there anyway to prime it?
    Thanks Mike

The fuel pump is located in the gas tank, do you hear it pumping. electronic pumps don't like to run out of gas, the gas cools the pump.

Tractor has been stood, had new head gasket but smokes white smoke and loses power when warm. What is wrong with it.. Any ideas..


Run a radiator pressure test or test for carbon monoxide vapor in the radiator. You have a cracked head or block if the head gasket was installed correctly. Note the installation would include measuring the block and head for warp.

Engine over heats while driving but cools down at idle


while driving coolant will cool down because air is flowing across radiator at idle no air movement ---check fan operation as well----- but until you fix leak you will still over heat due to lack of coolant and pressure

My low coolant light comes on whenever I start my 1991 735 iL. I had the coolant system checked out. It's fine. Which fuse may I take off to stop the warning area from going: "Ding - Low Coola


Make sure that there is enough fluid in the overflow jug as well as the radiator , I think the jug has a sensor it could be bad, or there may be air in your cooling system tat was not bled out of the bleeder valve if the system was serviced recently.

My 1996 ford explorer was running fine today. I came home and parked and then returned to find a puddle of coolant. I filled the radiator with water and the reserve with water. I ran the engine for...


make sure the engine is fully warmed up (check the temp gauge and feel the top hose from the radiator to the engine) that hose should be HOT and it you should NOT be able to calopse it-it should feel hard. If you do not have a leak under these conditions, you probably just have an overfull surge tank and it 'puked' out some fluid. If you top radiator hose is NOT hard after the engine is fully warmed up, you have something wrong-it could be as simple as a radiator cap that is not sealing properly, or a leaky hose, an intake manifold leak, or an internal leak in the engine (don't rule out a leaking radiator, it has end tanks that can and do leak).

Running hot temp gets to 220 and above.often shuts off while driving when foot is off the gas pedal,also sometimes will not start unless pressing the gas pedal.problem 2 started after i just about ran out...


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

===

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

My subaru outback is running hot and the heater doesn't blow hot air only cool


Have you checked the coolant level? If it is low, the car will run hot, and coolant won't flow through the heater core, which will result in a no heat situation. If this isn't the problem, let me know, I will try to help further.

OVERHEATS AFTER THERMOSTAT REMOVED


take fan belt off so water pump does not turn. take thermostat housing off. make sure water level is close to top of thermostat housing (inside) start it, look for air bubbles... If you get them it is due to leaking headgasket, this will be the cause of your overheating and I suspect it's pushing water out too... Just a guess with the limited details.

turn the key on and off a few times until you hear the pump working you should hear a slight hum as it pressurizes and or try priming it first with a capful of gasoline as a last resort it may be possible the fuel pump has stopped working or you have no spark present test by removing a plug wire and use a screwdriver at on end not touching it yourself hold 1/2 -1/4 inches away from a ground { the block}and crank it over is there any spark ? if not let me know
