engine coolant overheating in less than a mile and half.

Asked by Feb 22, 2014 at 08:13 AM about the 1995 BMW 5 Series 525i Sedan RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hie guys, my car has not been driving for close
to 8 months. But it's back on the road now. I
have driven it for 60km without any problems.
But now the temperature shoots to red within a
mile. I have checked oil and it's fine. No signs
of mixing problem. When engine idles the water
coolant in the radiator starts to rise and spill
over. How can I get my temp. Right!?

I would check thermostat first. Could also be the water pump failing.

Do a coolant system over haul that engine is know to have cooling system problems. The water pump impeller has most likely fell off.
