Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

Easiest is new engine, but, take the head off anyway for your peace of mind, and look for "tracking"... You will notice which cylinder is pushing into the coolant... Or even remove all the spark plugs (keep them in order), at least one will be different !
TIP: ALWAYS use a BMW gasket when you rebuild it !
I would personally sort your engine as apposed to a new unit !

i couldnt find k seal anywhere so i tried super seal its a form of liquid glass
it seems to have worked no pressure building up i did remove the thermostat
so the liquid would flow better should i flush out the system now and refill with coolant thanx again...

Did you READ the instructions?
Don't flush it now... Give it time... Still think you have a head issue though...
Ebay K-Seal...
How old is the coolant?
Get back to me on this pal...
