My 2004 BMW 325i is overheating & there seems to be a leak underneath the car. The radiator fan is not working. I would very much appreciate help/suggestions. Thank you!

Asked by Dec 23, 2014 at 02:32 AM about the 2004 BMW 3 Series 325i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car is overheating, the temp
gauge goes all the way to the right
after maybe 10-15 minutes, and the
fan visible outside the car is not
working.  I recently replaced the fuel
pump myself after watching a
YouTube video.  It took me 30
minutes when mechanics wanted to
charge me $800 + 1.5 hour labor.  I
don't trust any mechanic because
they would know that I would not be
able to tell if they were overcharging
me and installing parts that don't
need to be replaced.  Please help!
