Question about 2006 BMW 750Li

1 Answer

My bmw 318ti keeps over heating and leaking radiator fluid. I took it in three times to get the problem fixed but after a day it does it again. Ive spent $800 so far on nothing, they say they replaced hoses and temp gauge, now they say its the hoses again and the radiator fan! Can someone shed some light on this situation for me please!

double check your power steering level by all means, but you also said from the front end. there is a transmission cooler as part of the radiator. double check the cooler lines from the transmission to the radiator.
