Asked by Oct 12, 2015 at 10:41 AM about the 2007 BMW 5 Series 525i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving my message came on telling me my car is overheating, I
immediately pulled over and shut the vehicle off and had it towed to my
residence.  I'm not sure if its my thermostat, water pump or censor.  How do I
narrow it down.  I'm not able to take it in to the dealership for repair, due to
limit funds at this time.....Help!

Water pump, low coolant, air in the system, etc. Have it towed to an independent BMW/import garage and have them check it out vs the dealer. Hard for us to tell you what is faulty.

Yeah, hard to have low funds and own a BMW 5 series- if you keep it, I predict your funds are just gonna get lower-

Okay- helpfully- open the hood and check the coolant level- start there- is it low? look for leaks, bad hoses, etc. (good luck)

Then add the hoses and clamps. So you can complete the job for around $600 and a days worth of your time if you DIY. Good Luck!

Is the coolant low? You might want to bleed the system first, as you don't need anything but a screwdriver to do so.
