Hi my names james and im from england.

I own a 1997 bmw 520i which is sooo nice, i was wonderin if an1 could help me out.

Im having overheating problems and dont know wat to do. Ive had the head gasket done, new water pump, new thermostat and new plugs. I can drive around for about 15 mins before the temp starts rising, ther is water comin from the radiator bottle and there is quite a bit of pressure (hence the water comin out) I dont think theirs an air lock cos the systems been bled. Ive got no idea wat it could be, can anyone help me out on this

There is heat comin out of the heaters also.
