My BMW won't start

Asked by Jun 28, 2019 at 11:20 PM about the 2003 BMW 5 Series 530i Sedan RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car overheated one day while driving down the
highway. I pulled over right there and popped the
hood after I shut the engine off of course. I noticed
two radiator hoses were cracked and leaking fluid.
I called AAA and had them bring my car home. I
replaced the hoses thinking everything would be
fine after that. And now my car won't start at all
and when I tried to bleed the radiator to put
antifreeze in it, it was spraying out with alot of
pressure. Now my car cranks but doesn't fire up at
all what could be the problem

You may have burned up the engine.

Creamy color antifreeze means engine oil cooling system or oil that has water in means just the opposite, u may have blown head gaskets. Start there and check. Look at spark plugs too.
