Just bought 86 325E
So I bought this 86 325E, couldn't refuse the $400.00 price. The car is in fairly great shape, clean body, sunroof (nees to be adjusted but does not leak) no rot, interior complete but need some freshening, four new tires, new clutch, new battery, tie rod ends and ball joints. Runs good but I keep getting idiot lights on the overhead display showing coolant, oil and liscense plate lamp. Problem is the light is working & I just changed the oil & filter and did a motor flush, and the coolant seems to be full. I want to pull the t-stat, and then flush the cooling system, is there a way to flush the sealed cooling system? I can't seem to find a radiator petcock, I assume there is one? Has anyone done a flush on their E30 325 that can help me out here?
Is there a reset for the overhead other than pushing the "Check" light?
Also need to pick up a few pieces of trim, both interior and exterior, seems like most can be found on E-Bay, but I'm searching for the exterior drip rail trim for a 325E coupe, any ideas?
As soon as I get caught up I'll post some pics.
Thanks in advance for your help,
