Hi all... just bought a e46 with 118bhp engine, i think is the M43... never had a BMW and it was a long time ago when i've had a petrol engine... my problem is i loosing coolant and very fast... i've check the dipstick and oil cover and to signs of cream, no overheating. it seems i loosing the water only if the engine is running, but i cant see any steam from exhaust... well a bit but it is cold outside and only when i rev it in to max ( 108k on clock ). just now, when finally stopped raining i have notice a water line while on the road while i was driving and it seems it goes from driver side ( uk model ). can it be a faulty water pump or do i have to be prepared for absolute disaster?
thank you all for any help
