BMW Radiator Articles

A baby is a creature that exists to feed and sleep. It remains calm and contented because everything it needs to be able to exist comfortably is just near at hand. Milk is almost always available whenever it feels the need to be fed. It is able to sleep anytime it wants because its crib is never far away.
 
When the baby feels that one of these things is absent, it becomes distressed. It lets everyone know how it is feeling by crying out loud. When its mother hears its pleas for attention, she tries to comfort it by giving it what it wants. She rocks it to sleep when she sees that it wants to and feeds it from her bossom when the distress signals turn out to be caused by hunger. It is only then that the baby is eventually calmed down. Its mother is the antidote which wards off everything capable of upsetting it.
The engine of a vehicle is comparable to a baby. It is a mechanism that has the tendency to throw tantrums once it becomes overworked. Its need to be calmed down every once in a while is manifested in the form of overheating, a bad occurrence which might cause greater damage to vehicles concerned. This is the reason why vehicles employ auto radiators. Like a baby's mother, the auto radiator is the only one capable of soothing the engine's hissy fits.
 
auto radiators come in different varieties, and one of those that can be trusted to do its function as efficiently as possible is the BMW auto radiator. The BMW auto radiator is engineered to harmonize the engine of BMW vehicles by regulating antifreeze into its parts. This way, its tendency to overheat is held in check almost all the time.
 
A baby is a creature that needs a lot of attention, and an engine needs just about the same. While the mother is present for the well-being of the baby, the BMW auto radiator is present for the well-being of the engine which BMW vehicles employ.

Closer Look at BMW Radiator

Your BMW radiator is an essential part of your cooling system, which is itself vital to your vehicle's ability to perform. Without your cooling system, and especially your BMW radiator, the heat of the combustion would melt the seals, gaskets, rubber hoses and even some of the metal parts of your engine, warping those that remained almost beyond recognition. Your BMW radiator plays a key role in keeping that extreme heat under control, cooling the liquid coolant that collects the heat of the engine. Placed behind the grille, where it has access to a cooling flow of air as the vehicle is in motion and helped along by the fan, the BMW radiator is designed to provide the maximum surface area possible, which allows the heat to dissipate into the air. This position does leave it vulnerable to damage from road debris and to the moisture that enters through the grille and from the puddles and such that are driven through, and over time rust can form, which can eat through and cause leaks. Rust can also be a factor in problems inside of the BMW radiator, as over time it forms and flakes of, resulting in clogs. Eventually, if rust gets a start, your BMW radiator will have to be replaced, due to the leaks that are sure to form when it finally eats its way through the metal. A small leak may be able to be kept up with, at first, by refilling the fluid, but as time passes it will grow, due, in part, to the pressure in the system. When the time comes to replace your BMW radiator, we carry a variety of replacements, available for a broad range of years and models of BMW. Our BMW radiator replacements are reasonably priced, and that affordable pricing is further enhanced by the free ground shipping we offer for all orders over $50. Our secure online ordering system and convenient toll-free telephone number make sure that ordering your BMW radiator, as well as any of our other parts and accessories, is always convenient and safe.

How to Repair Your BMW Radiator

Is your BMW's radiator damaged? Then here's some much-needed help right at your fingertips. Your car's cooling system is made up of different components, including the thermostat, water pump, and radiator. Once your cooling system starts acting up, running to your nearest dealership might not be necessary if it's a potentially easy fix that you could do on your own (as in a do-it-yourself project). Use this step-by-step guide in order to troubleshoot your BMW radiator in order to resolve the issue without the need of professional assistance.

Difficulty Level:Hard

  • Wrench
  • Coolant
  • Catch basin
  • Screwdriver
  • Distilled water
  • Replacement hoses
  • Replacement radiator
  • Ratchet and socket set

What You'll Need

Step 1:Open up your radiator drain plug in order to drain out the coolant inside it. Use your catch basin to catch the coolant. If your radiator lacks a drain plug, then use the lower radiator hose instead by loosening it.

Step 2:Once the radiator has been totally emptied, detach the hoses connected to it by loosening nose clamps and pulling them off of their attachment necks. Also, give yourself more room to work with by by sliding the auxiliary belts off of their pulleys.

Step 3:Take off the radiator shroud and engine cooling fan. This is a vehicle-specific step and this process doesn't cover all engine types or specific component placement. For most BMWs, you'll need a wide box wrench to unbolt the fan from the engine.

Step 4:Set your cooling fan down for the sake of clutch protection. Unbolt the shroud. If clearance or space doesn't allow you to pull the shroud and the fan separately, then it's better for you to pull both of them out together instead.

Step 5:Take off all the remaining attachment points, including mounting clips, bolts, and screws. Get a container like a bowl or a mounting tray to hold these items together so that you won't end up dropping or losing them.

Step 6:Remove the radiator itself from the engine. Any leftover coolant inside it might spill out as this piece of equipment shifts around, so be prepared by wearing a mechanic's apron and putting a catch basin, and some newspapers on the floor.

Step 7:Install your replacement radiator. Handle the new component carefully and gently so that you won't end up damaging the delicate hose necks or cooling fins. Put back the mounting hardware you removed earlier. Use the right torque on them so that you won't end up breaking your newly bought radiator.

Step 8:Reverse the fan and shroud removal process in order to reinstall them unto your radiator. Reattach the cooling hoses for good measure. Make sure the hose clamps are snugly tightened without over-tightening them.

Step 9:Check out the condition of the cooling hoses and consider replacing them. As they age, they tend to become more prone to failure and outright brittle to the touch. If you need to replace one, then you might as well replace them all. Put back the auxiliary and tension belts as well once you're all done with repair and replacement.

Step 10:Slide the belts back to their pulleys and adjust their tension to factory settings by tightening the tension adjustment nuts and bolts. Put in replacement coolant and find the right mix of coolant and distilled water that's perfect for your BMW and your current climate.
