Okay so I have a 318is 1993 she's over heating every time I start her up. So I replace the radiator and still nothing, so I replace the water pump and thermostat STILL nothing. I do done this all my self and some starting to loose hope for her I don't have the money for a new engine I need some tricks of the trade I think theres a block in the block it self. I also replace my solenoid. I have no heat either please someone help.
How long does it take to start overheating?
Will it happen with it just standing and idling?
Is the top radiator hose hot and the lower hose cold?
Check if there are any kinks in the (air purge) hose that runs from the top of the radiator to the expansion tank.
1.)It take ruffly 10-15 min. to over heat.
2.)Its kinda jumpy after its been overheating and it's running great up until that point no stalls or issues.
3.) yes if you facing the car her top radiator hose is hot and the lower left one is cold
Im thinking clog but for the simple fact that I have done the bleed just maybe not correctly but I will try again and jack the car up this time. The top hose is extremely hot but the bottom is relatively cold. Im not sure if its electrolysis cause there was some damage on my thermostat housing but not to bad. How do you get rid of electrolysis though?
