This is where I see water flowing when the auxiliary water pump is running. Hi Scott, Damn good advice. I figure once the shroud and fan are free, they are lifted out together, being careful not to drop the fan as it come out. Wonder what sources produce those squeaky pulleys. Anyone experience this They want 840 for job.
By replacing these core items preventatively, such as the thermostat housing, radiator, and waterpump, you are defusing what could be a ticking cooling system time bomb. I opened the hood and the radiator cap was laying on a support near the radiator. The first sign of these issues happend in 1998 yet went un corrected in design. Even though this Behr expansion tank nipple is reinforced with a tube of metal, this broke off when I removed the hose clamp from it in order to remove it from the car. You might try calling a dealer to verify it works for the I6 engine. There is no pocket of air for heating or cooling and no readings are taken, it is a simple magnetic float switch that operates around the outside of the tube in which the sensor sits.
Reducing the pressure might buy you a little time but it will still crack. Please, the next person to replace their expansion tank, please cut it open and take care to note the position of the stalk and box in the hidden chamber behind the thin incomplete bulkhead. This appeared to be working correctly. If I am crunched for time or looking to save steps I will remove just the intake air ducts to the throttle housing. I saw liquid spurting from the drivers side, seemingly below the upper hose by a couple of inches, and of to the side, as if a seam split. Anyone experience this They want 840 for job.
This cooling system package is for the 1997-1998 540i with the M62 4. If so, a lot of enthusiasts are plain wrong. Ive gotten it off with 3 wacks. My goal is to allow for me to change idler pulleys and serp belt. A failure in the cooling system can lead to overheating and catastrophic engine failure. That way I can take it off again without the wp pulley holder being needed. The car continued through production until 2003 and yet bmw never changed the 99 323is E36 Automatic My buddy had a guy work on his car and of course he screwed it all up and now I am trying to just fill in the gap and figure everything out and get it working again.
They want to see your car perform the way you dream it. In hindsight, even this would have exerted too much sidewise force on the nipple, dooming it to failure. I verify my problems by going to multiple shops to make sure Im not getting cheated. Is your car starting to run hot Over time the bearings in the water pump 1998 528i E39 159K miles. The problem is the radiator neck was never designed properly anyway for that pressure either.
I filled up some coolant into a small plastic bottle took note of its resting liquid level and immersed it in boiling water for 30 minutes. Please take a pic and post it. Ive recently replaced the upper. Instead we've been selling this aluminum housing for the last 20+ years. I had a rough time with this. But a little gritty stuff around the screw itself.
So if anyone can help then very much appreciated. Been driving it since December 2008, didn't fall off for me. Then look at the pics in this radiator weak points thread. Frankly, though, on an E39 I'd worry more about the water pump than the radiator. Motors seems still ok no smoke and cranks up fine. I think we'd need a third expansion tank autopsy to confirm or deny my hypothesis that this chamber failed in my expansion tank because the stalk moved out of the corner hole and blocked upward motion. The parts store was missing the size in between; they only had the 14-16mm size.
And if you've had a failure of one of these parts, now is the time to refresh your entire cooling system. Dumping pressure is't a great idea. Its been fine for a couple of days until this morning. Hailing from Stuttgart, Mahle-Behr specializes in automotive cooling systems. But, the main question, is what is the purpose of this chamber? There was a recent thread on that exact topic that you may be interested in it was within the past week or two. By replacing these core items preventatively, such as the thermostat housing, radiator, and waterpump, you are defusing what could be a ticking cooling system time bomb.
