Car overheats bmw 1993 radiators l6-2.5l 525i

Q: Car overheats

asked by on January 25, 2016

My car is overheating.

This is a very broad question with little information to go on. The most common causes of overheating are low coolant or the engine cooling fan clutch since your car has a mechanical fan. More information would be required to give a more detailed answer but this vehicle should not be driven until the issue is repaired as serious damage could occur to the car. A qualified technician will be able to diagnose where your overheating problem is coming from.
