You need to visit your local BMW Dealer or a shop that specializes in imports!! Other places like the corner gas station or chain type of garage will not be able to fix this car!! My Nephew learned that lesson the hard way with his '98 528i. BMW cooling systems are very fussy and they DON'T like to be run hot or overheated!! You may already have a cracked head!! HTH. -Jim
