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 have a 1997 bmw 318i that is overheating and the fan wont engage and steam/mist/smoke is coming from the back of the engine compartment. I replaced the thermostat,what else could the problem be?


now it needs to be pressure tested for an internal or external coolant leak. If the water level keeps dropping in an engine the coolant temp sensor will never tell the computer when to turn the fan on. was the air ever purged out of the cooling system? Because, the temp sensor will never get a reading if coolant levels are low and will never tell the computer when to engage the fan. Does the A\C work? Does the fan come on for the A\C?

I have a 1997 bmw 318i that is overheating. Steam comes from back of engine compartment and the fan is not engaging. What could the problem be?


It is likely that the heater core has sprung a leak, or the hoses leading to the heater core have failed. This would cause a loss of coolant that would make the coolant temperature sensor think it wasn't necessary to turn the fan on, and would cause steam to appear to rise out of the back of the engine. If you turn the heater on inside the passenger compartment and get steam through the vents, it's DEFINITELY a heater core breach. Otherwise, check the hoses leading to the heater core and make sure they are still connected and not leaking. Good luck!

On idle bmw 1997 318 overheats and blowers are cold.every was fine a week ago this car has only 47 000 miles and been serviced every year


well start by checking the coolant level it may be low,if it is then check for coolant leak, if coolant is full then bad news, ive done a few of these with overheating and no heat, they had bad head gaskets, if coolant is full have a block test done, this will confrim the gasket problem,also dont drive could cause converter and o2 sensor damage. good luck.

I have a bmw e46 318i se when i start the car the fan comes on straight away weather its cold or hot, i run it up and it doesnt over heat and drives perfect, BUT THERE IS NO HOT AIR COMING OUT THE BLOWERS,...


it could be afaulty coolant temp sensor or a sticky fan relay, I suggest to swap the cooling fan relay first but if doesn't make change then i go through coolant temp sensor.

My 1997 bmw 318 ti keeps over heating


check your hoses see if when runnig they close up,if not loo for vents for letting are out of the system if ther is a air pocket inyour coolant system it willcause the engine to overheat make sure to run the heat when refilling coolant system. if this fails to solve your problem look for a gurgling sound coming from the rad or over flow tank look for this when engine is cold and runnig if you do hear this then you might have a blown head gasket.you can buy a blown headgasket detection kit from your local auto parts store if you do hear or see this symtom.
