Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
Ilragatzzo78 is 100% right. I had the same trouble with my 318ti. It took a lot of sitting on the side of the road. The only solution is time. Bleed, bleed and re bleed. You can bleed it through the bleeder screw on top of the radiator (plastic screw). I didn't know about the angle part, but thanks for the idea..

that's the problem
yes, you have to take the coolant filling cap off " expansion tank cap "
turn your car on for at least an hour
the bmw line has a very bad problem wich is " bubbles " inside your water system
you have to have your car inclined and running without the cap so he can bleed all the bubbles out.
sorry you spent all that money but after you replaced the radiator all you had to do was that, to get rid of bubbles.
so, do this. park your car on an incline position, engine up.
remove the cap. let it run for at least an hour.
refill as needed " coolant "
do that the following morning and for last refill the collant as needed.
problem should desapear.
hope this helps
