There is a drain hose that is about 1/2 inch in diameter, it gets plugged or dislodged... Usually only a jamb easy for passenger to kick it.

A/C units, as you know, remove moisture from the air and need to drain this water away..

Locate hose on right side, firewall area. And then find the same hose inside. Inspection of this area and resolve what you find and that is most of it...

I'm replacing a water pump on my 1990 BMW 525i and I don't no how to remove that thing where the spark plugs go and the rotor 2nd I'm also need to remove the timing belt cover can I get the 3rd bolt out...

STOP what you are doing before you damage something!! Whatever you are trying to remove is not the water pump. Neither the sparkplugs nor the "timing belt" cover needs to come off. Remove the fan belt. Remove the fan (the nut is LH thread- means it turns left to tighten and right to loosen). You will need a large wrench (32mm) availible at sears.The water pump is directly behind the fan and is held in by 4 10mm bolts.

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator

There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

Hi i have BMW 525i 2004 from time to time when

It is very important that the engine not overheat! The head can crack and this would be very bad.
I think your car is too new to need a new radiator.
Make sure the coolant level is correct.
Check the thermostat housing for leaks.
When the engine is hot, check if the fan clutch is locked up and actually driving the fan. Turn the engine off and grab the fan and try to turn it. It should turn stiffly. If it spins freely the fan clutch is dead.
It is possible that the water pump impeller has failed, especially if it is a plastic one.

My 2001 525i BMW has stopped blowing heat/ac. I had the blower motor replaced 1 1/2 year ago. Could it be a fuse

could be 3 things. The fuse, the motor, or the resistor. Just because it was replaced doesn't mean it won't go bad. It went bad the 1st time. Fuse is more common. As is the resistor, oh and a 4th item...the relay.. Rare for that one to go out though.

My BMW 525i emits gray smoke.this happens usually after I have driven a while, like to work,let it sit for a few hours then come back.Upon re-start of the car,there is a ton of smoke,but usually burns off...

You have a stuck or leaking valve that is letting oil into the cylinder when it sits. You need to have the Engine serviced and possible the Head repaired.
