Lol. Yeah... I'm pretty clueless with what kinds of extra sensors BMW may or may not have on their cars. I know Foxbody Mustangs and that's it. Lol. So having my BMW will be an interesting bit to work on. The guy who is keeping my car in storage works on Ford vehicles, has no idea like myself, about BMW. He's convinced that the engine is not blown up to smithereens. He put a new waterpump on it and said that he cannot get the car to run. Now when I left the car in his possession it behaved like it did when I had to constantly crank the key and pump the gas to get it to run, like i did after it overheated, to get it to move. Now when i left it with him I tried the same thing to no avail. nothing sounded different. i cannot recall it sounding different than it did before it overheated. If it's just a head gasket and its getting no compression then it would not run period now would it? Now when it overheated the oil was like sludge afterwards. Ick!
Other than that, I found no signs of seepages into my other fluids.
Now how do i go about performing a compression test on a beemer?
BTW when the key cranks the engine does turn.
Haha... I can picture the birdcage now... with all the feathers stuck up in it. LMAO.
