also my bmw has been acting up latly. my girl drives my cars right now while im in japan and my bmw coolant light comes on and she will fill the coolant in it and it seems to be gone within a half a day but she said she doesnt see it leak anywhere, also my ac says it is on but no air comes out the vents. im thinking that is the blower resistor but im not understanding whats going on with my coolant. maybe it needs a new radiator? or maybe the thermostat is bad? any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!!!

Since the coolant is gone by the end of the day, its most likely that there is a leak. Depending on your mileage, it's recommended that you do a cooling system overhaul.
Here is a video explaining the common failures of the e46 cooling system.


Here is the cooling system kit that you need:

Hope this helps.
