    Indicator stalk

    Hi it's just started happening on a few days now. I've had the car 10 years and never had this issue before. This only happens when turning right ... I've stripped out that stalk and trying to figure out whether I'm able to move the contacts which could fix the problem.... I've seen a E30 stalk on ebay at a okay price that's why I asked whether anyone has used a E30 stalk on a e28. But I'll try fixing by current stalk first.

    Indicator stalk

    Problem is that every time I indicate right my main beam lights turn on ... So I'm assuming it's a faulty indicator stalk but not sure .

    Over heating

    Okay thought I’d mention I’ve flushed out the heater matrix aswell all is clear and water flows well. I’ve again flushed out all water pipe circulation all flows well. Still doesn’t explain the hot and cold radiator hoses so top gets hot and lower stays cold also radiator stays cold.... I’ve ordered a new replacement thermostat and water pump should arrive soon. Really wanna get to the bottom of this problem.

    Over heating

    Yesterday took some time out to investigate further and discovered the heater valve to be stuck in the shut position. That explains why there wasn’t Any hot air from heater blower. Can a seized heater valve effect bleeding the system?

    Over heating

    Okay guys appreciate the suggestions. So today I began looking around the cooling system. Firstly removed the thermostat then removed the coolent pipes from radiator and other accessible areas. I then flushed all the system with the garden hose. The radiator had no blockage as water was flowing free from top through to the bottom... i stuck thegardrn hose in several pipes around the cooling system and water flowed through with out a problem. Then I connected all the hoses back up and filled the Collins system with water and started the car up. This time I found that bottom and top radiator hoses got hot but the radiator still not warming up ,,also engine still over heats and water bubbles from expansion tank. Would a possible bad water pump cause this this problem? Feels as the water isn’t being circulated around the system as radiator stays cold ... would a bad head gaket cause this sort of a problem?

    Over heating

    Hi all I’ve got a over heating issue. A few days ago my engine temperature over heated due to not much water in system. So I topped the water expansion tank. Now the top coolent hose on passenger side gets hot but the bottom coolent hose on drivers side stays cold also radiator stays cold. Engine still continues to overheat. Seems like some sort of a blockage. Any ideas and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    Shifter rebuild kit

    Who does a full shifter rebuild kit for a 1987 m535i dogleg sheet metal console? Have the prop stripped out ready for a rebuild so thought I’d sort out the floppy shifter while I’ve got access. Thanks
