My Ride: 01' 330ci
Bleed the system . Drive the front on 2x4s to help the air out the bleed valve. Turn heat on highest temp and lowest fan speed (don't start car) and unscrew the bleed valve until coolant starts to come out. Have towels ready to avoid making a mess. Look to see if there is any air bubbles in the coolant, if there is none , screw the bleed valve back on . DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BLEED SCREW . Very easy to strip this !! Then top off coolant to correct level. Now start car, unscrew bleed screw just a little to make double sure the air is out. Now go drive around until it gets to operating temp. Then allow car to cool fully. Then top off coolant.
