You need to have the alternator tested and the starter if the car has ove 40,000 miles replace the drive belt give these websites a try and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

Ok i start my bmw 1992 325i take bleeder screw out top water up to top air comes out then stops but if leave like that it starts over flowing out of plastic tank then heats up bubbling and where the little...

Just did my 95 525i. Most importantly, make sure all of the air is out, then tighten the bleeder. Let it run. If the reservoir is over flowing than it's over full. Keep an eye on the temp. gauge for bout 15 min. If it goes over normal operating temp. you still have air in the radiator and need too bleed more.

Have to press hard on breaks to break on 528i bmw 2000

sounds like brake booster not working
check vacuum hose that goes to booster is ok and not leaking
engine off
pump up brake pedal several times
hold brake pedal down
start engine
pedal should sink down approx half to 3/4 way down indicating booster is working
if pedal doesnt go down when engine is running booster has leak or no vacuum supply from engine which requires great pedal effort to try and get vehicle to stop.
