    Hi everyone,

    I have a 2001 BMW 330ci (USA)... and is having overheating issues. I am looking at the fuse box in the glove compartment. but dont have the diagram of the fuses and what they are for. If you have the same car..Can anyone take a pic of their fuse box diagram?

    Thanks a bunch :eek:

    There was a leak from the water reservoir.. I replaced that and the thermostat. It still overheated with just the engine on, sitting still. Checked fuses to see any related fuses.

    Are there sensors that needs to be replaced??

    I was also thinking it might be the water pump..

    could be water pump, but there is sensors for temp to turn on electric fans. also fan should stay on all the time if air is on. try air and if fan doesn't come on might be the fan. to test, run straight power and ground to fan, if not come on no good, if does then sensor or fuse is no good.

    either gonna steam out exhaust or the oil will get milky white sorta. if you had a radiator pump pressure tester( a tool ), you pressureize the system and wait 15 mins and if pressure falls, then a leak somewhere.

    if bad can just see on dipstick. if not that bad over night or a day or two if pull oil plug for a second and then look at oil will see water if any. oil floats on oil, so oil will be on bottom. if bad the oil pump mixes the oil and water and will be milky white like mixing oil and vineger, then when sitting they seperate.
