over heating.

okay this may sound like a very odd question but my mother lost her fuel cap the other day and not suddenly her car seems to be over heating..I know there isn't much that i can think of that would tie the two together just shitty timing but.. can someone back me up on that incase there is something i just don't know.

lost gas cap may cause a check engine light, but not overheating.
Just a coincidence.

okay didn't figure so just wanted to make sure because first my fuel pump went out and then hers wants to over heat.. Guess you do have to have money to drive one of these bastards.

Well.. the fuel pump is gonna go on any car, it's just a matter of time.
As for the cooling system, it's weak on most BMW models. Whatever is causing her's to overheat, have everything else thoroughly inspected (pertaining to the cooling) because the next thing WILL go soon.

They are fairly solid after that.
