Engine Cooling problem
1994 BMW 525i 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 134000 miles
My car a/c had been working then it started intermittently working on and off, 1 min it's cold then next it's blowing hot then back to cold. I had a small leak and the other day when I came out of the store there was a pool of coolant under my car, I drove a couple of blocks back home and by the time I got there it was almost in the red. I popped the hood and had a stream of coolant shooting 6 ft in the air from a tear in on of the hoses going to the bypass cooling unit. I changed the hoses in that area as they were looking old. I filled the radiator with coolant and found that the leak was fixed but when I went to take it for a test drive I didn't get very far because it overheated right away again. I checked the thermostat and it is fine and the fan is coming on. Does anyone know what else it could possibly be?
have the same problem?
