My car keeps overheating.
A common failure item on your BMW is the water pump; the impeller that spins to circulate the coolant breaks off. This can be verified, without removing the pump, through an inspection of the cooling system for proper circulation. Although this is common, there are other possibilities, such as a thermostat that is stuck closed, low coolant, a restricted radiator, or cooling fan malfunction. I recommend having a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come out to your car's location to run a diagnostic inspection of your overheating issue, and suggest the best path to repair.
