Any budding Sherlock Holmes out there?
I've got a 325i convertable which I've had since new from 91. Only 80,000mls.
I've been loosing coolant, so my BMW authorised garage replaced the radiator, this didn't help. So then they said that the head gasget needed replacing, again no result so then they said the head neaded re-skiming. This didn't help. So I took it to another garage and they said that THEY wanted to skim the head. Again this didn't help.
Obviously I'm down a lot of money and I still have the problem.
I can't see any external leaks, and the consumtion of coolant seems to be getting greater.
Now for the strange bit. Recently I drove some 300 miles armed with gallons of coolant . after about 20 miles my coolant warning light came on, but as the miles passed the temperature gague didn't move.
After the journey I had a look at the coolant tank and saw that there was still some showing. When I released the pressure, the remaining coolant dissapeared.
Any advice thoughts or just hunches would be greatfully recieved.
Thanks in advance.
