Question about 1998 BMW 5 Series
You wont like me if i do? oh well nobody like me anyhow!
if the water jaket built up this much presher its likley to be a stuck thermostat or a blown head gasket,,,,to test for this,, have a "sniffer test" done they take some water out the water jaket and test it to see if it has any hydrocarbons in it,, if it has then its the head gasket poped or a cracked head!
this test takes no longer than 30 seconds to do,,,even stoping for tea!
if you fit a new thermostat first,,,, blead the air out the water jaket as well ,,,,,,,then if it boiles up,,,,its the head gasket?
see,,,you hate me now!!!! dont yer?
