Angry Please Help!!


Hey All,

My 2000 BMW 328i is giving me hell. I love this car and have always dreamed of owning one. I have now had it for 2yrs and 2 mths with no problems.

Well, now it has been in and out of the garage for about 2 months solid and it is still doing the same thing.

It all started with the radiator fluid light coming on. Since then the waterpump, the thermostat, the radiator, the head gasket and the radiator fluid level sensor has been replaced.

Got my car back this morning again for the 4th or 5th time and the damn light has come on again.

I am about to drive it off a cliff.

Any help woul be appreciated.
Thank you.

Ok, was all that stuff actually bad and how do you know if it was? (sounds like shotgunning just hoping to fix it without knowing what the actual problem is). Second, is the fluid level actually low? Was the system bled when they filled it and how did they bleed it? Have all the hoses also been replaced? And is there any fluid leaking out from under the vehicle or in the vehicle? Does the garage you're taking it to actually know BMW's or are they just a general fix it independent? Beemers aren't hard, but you MUST know what you're doing with them.
