Flushing & Replacing Engine Coolant in a BMW/MINI

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- The coolant flush is not especially difficult, but it does require more than simply removing the radiator drain plug. In this video we will demonstrate a coolant flush and change on a typical BMW with a later model 6-cylinder engine. The procedures shown can be applied to most BMW and MINI models. In our example (2002 E53 X5 3.0i), we'll show the specific steps to properly drain and flush the system, then fill and bleed with new 50/50 mix of distilled water and coolant. Watch the video and see the parts and tools used, below. For further assistance, please contact our agents at 800-535-2002 or visit our online store at bavauto.com. The Bentley repair manuals will cover model specific points, torque values and fill quantities. This DIY will assume that the DIYer has the applicable Bentley manual for additional references. Our BMW and MINI cooling systems have the thankless task of dissipating the heat generated by our engines (and automatic transmissions), keeping them at an optimal operating temperature; not too hot, not too cool. In addition, the cooling system must keep corrosion and sediment from attacking the metal, plastic and rubber parts of the systems. Like the engine's lubrication system (oiling), the cooling system must function mile after mile and hour after hour for hundreds of thousands of miles and thousands of hours. Faults within either of these systems will typically result in catastrophic failure and potentially terminal engine damage. With these thoughts in mind, we can begin to understand why regular maintenance of the engine's cooling system is just as (or more) important as the other regular maintenance tasks that we perform on our BMWs and MINIs. We recommend a coolant flush every two to three years if using the BMW/MINI coolant and distilled water (more often if other coolant or "tap" water is used). While the base Ethylene Glycol (EG) Antifreeze/Coolant (basically) holds its antifreeze properties for a very long time, the additives for corrosion protection, lubrication, etc, do not. The recommended 2-year interval is due to the Silicate anti-corrosion additives that are "used up" and begin to drop out of solution after about two years of service. When this happens, silicate build-up can happen within the radiator, heater core and engine passages. When adding coolant, between flushes, always add the same coolant as the original fill. While adding a common green, orange, yellow or other, coolant (which have differing additive packages and base pH) will not immediately destroy your engine or cooling system, it will reduce the effectiveness of both the base and the added coolants. This will, at least, greatly reduce the service life or, at worst, start a corrosive cycle. We mix the coolant with the distilled water in a 50/50 ratio. Using distilled water for your 50/50 mix is not specifically required, but in doing so, your coolant mixture will be much more stable and far less corrosive in the long term. This is due to the absence of the minerals and impurities that are removed in the distillation process. These impurities encourage electrolytic corrosion to the engine block, cylinder head, hoses and gaskets, damaging these parts and causing failures and need for repairs.

Part 1: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every 50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39 (5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.

Crankcase Vent Valve Issue, BMW 2004 E46
Burning the oil out after cleaning the spark plugs. Time to change the oil separator. BMW sells a kit to replace their defective valve/separator design. Update: No problems after CCV replacement Background: CCV fails, allowing oil into the engine cylinders and coating the spark plugs, causing the engine to flood and not start. To be sure this is your issue, pull a plug and see if its covered in oil, if so pull them all and clean them with de-greaser. I made the video to see what would happen on the first start since the cylinders were coated in oil still. Just to be clear, this smoke only happened for a few minutes after I cleaned and replaced the oil covered spark plugs. After that, the car was back to running clean even with the bad CCV. The reason to replace the CCV valve is so you don't have the oil flood again.

BMW Radiator, Cooling System, Water Pump Upgrade - E36 M3
http://www.AutoWerksofAmerica.com/ A BMW radiator isn't terribly hard to replace. While You're replacing the radiator you should consider upgrading other BMW cooling system parts like the water pump, the thermostat and the thermostat housing. This DIY video shows that replacing a BMW radiator isn't hard. You can do it with a few simple tools and a little know-how. Many BMW owners like to perform preventative maintenance on the weak spots of the cooling system. The main concerns are the plastic radiator, the plastic impeller in the water pump and the plastic thermostat housing. You can replace the water pump with an OEM unit, a unit with a steel impeller or special order a Stewart high performance water pump. Email for more info: sales@AutoWerksofAmerica.com
