Thank you , should i replace the timing belt?

there s no leak and i just want to know what i should replace to prevent further problems .thank you for your help


The engine should be a chain, not a belt. The cooling systems are weak on the BMW's, so you might want to replace those parts as maintenance. www.fcpeuro.com
