328i heat and steering problem
My son has a 1997 328i that we just got out of storage. We stored it because the heat would not blow hot air. All fluids were full.
This spring we put in a new thermostat and housing, a new water pump and fan clutch. During this process we noticed the expansion chamber had pieces busted on the inside. We cleaned them out hoping no big deal for now but do need to order a new one. I noticed the car does NOT have pressure in the radiator when the car was warm and it still blows cold air. Rev the engine and it gets only warm air. I was thinking airlock but it did this last fall to. Could the expansion chamber be the problem? I loosen the bleeder screw and can't get any fluid to come out and no pressure. Any ideas where to start looking for the problem?
Also, the steering now has a jerky feeling and hard to steer. Steering fluid is full and it worked fine before storage. Its a bad feeling and cannot be driven this way. No leaks anywhere to be seen. Any thoughts on what to do?
I always turn to this forum for problem solving and read all up on maintenance for my bmw,s. Being a semi new bmw owner I have learned a lot from this forum but this time I am stumped. Please help
