First of all, that should have been losing not loosing in the title. Typo and don't know how to edit title.
Hi everyone, first time poster.
I own a 2002 325i, manual.
Over the last year or so, I've noticed that I'm losing coolant. There is no indication of leakage (coolent on garage floor) and I've had it checked out in my last inspection at the dealer and they said everything seemed fine. Did a pressure check, no leakage.
They claim the problem was that the lid wasn't on tight enough and I was having some evaporation. Not sure I believe that, being the suspicious type.
But I have to put coolant in about every 2-3 months. Not a lot, but I've gone through one quart in the last year and that includes having it topped off in one of my inspections.
So I was wondering if anyone knew what else could be the problem? My concern is that I've just passed my warranty interval and is it possible they purposely didn't tell me about the problem untill after I was out of warranty? I'm concerned that I'm going to take it in next time and they'll tell me I have a leak that has really been there for quite a while.
Is there something else that could be causing this that would be much more serious? I once had a car with a leaky cylinder head gasket and coolant was leaking into the engine. I'm concerned that there might be some serious problem that they don't want to tell me about untill I have to pay for it.
Any ideas, suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
