BMW Mechanic Hi im kevin has system been pressure tested ? yes Kevin BMW Mechanic Ok and no loss of pressure ? 11 February 2017 10:48 my mechanic did the pressure check when he put in the new reservoir and relief valve

Ok ans as far as your aware theres no leak and was no

My car has 213000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would recommend having another pressure test performed. If your cooling system is leaking, the source of the leak should be revealed with a pressure test. Once the source of the leak is found you will have the insight you need to make a repair decision. Consider YourMechanic for your pressure test as it can be done from your home or office.
