You pretty much just proved that BMW doesn't know what they fuck they're doing. To building an engine and into fixing it.

This sounds like I'm trying to insult someone but honestly I'm not I'm just giving my opinion. I'm no where near in the league of being a supercar mechanic as that can be a whole different ballgame at times ( some think just because your certified that you can work on anything, well I can work on anything but I'm only experienced in certain vehicles up to a point). These problems however as I've been following this on and off were mostly because of different reasons. The vast majority being "Mechanics" not knowing what they are doing yet claiming to know exactly what they are doing with that exact car. I mean you are running into problems that THEY have created after the fact of the original problem. If they had started from A to Z of even basic diagnostic testing of a vehicle until you 100% find the problem then allot of this would have been avoided. That and reconfirming every single part that is placed to make sure it's correctly installed and ready for the continual process like #1 being TDC. Also when he pressurized the coolant system and did a bleed down he did that 20 steps way to late and out of order performing standard diagnostic tests. This is why we have them and yes it might suck going through the list testing things that you know probably isn't it but then you end up finding that oddball problem. Many will complain about time spent but I could have already went through a-z pertaining to coolant and overheating diagnostic in half the time it spent to even get to the thermostat removal. (previous video), I'm not saying a front to back on every car but I am saying when you get one that's clearly not obvious then yes it's time to go by the book no matter how simple. Even bleeding each cylinder down when they finally find a problem was done way, way, way to late as they were continually messing with guesses instead of again running through the full diagnostic procedures (because they would have already done the bleed down as it's within the diagnosing at a certain stage. You have to know exactly what's wrong before you can fix it, good Mechanics aren't "guessers" and they don't throw parts at something until it works. Even checking the flatness of the heads (within enough tolerance with a feeler gauge to see if there was blatant issues which could have been done right there and saved you several hundred dollars I only send them off if it's not some huge disparity that even I can find (yet another video). So sadly you've had more mechanic error on this than anything else. look I'm no where near saying I'm better but after incorrectly placing the #1 for TDC was enough because that's basic. It could even be to many chef's in the pot. Your constantly trying to make this interesting by setting up shots and not just 100% shooting what's happening naturally so I'm sure they feel pressured plus all your constant questions and you working on the car with them which also screws everything up because now if somethings wrong you won't know where to direct the blame if it was a very expensive mechanic error. So the car's actual problem dwarfs your actual problems occurring. The only thing that saved you was the not only reasonable price but if anything the Dirt cheap let me add you to my Christmas Card list price they gave you! 5000$ after a month? Man you better give that guy a hug!

Job well done guys, the dealers are too lazy today to do proper fault finding, if the fault does not show up on the diagnostic machine, they just change parts, not mechanics anymore, just new part fitters

OK. One little flaw with your posts: Viewing order. TY is not necessarily showing your follow-up videos in proper order, so I'm having to pay attention to the posting dates after clicking a link. I'm not seeing these from your channel, YT suggested the first one, and then I'm finding the rest in the suggested videos to the right. Perhaps put "1/4" or such on the titles?

Given that the head can be re-machined to a certain point, does BMW offer different thicknesses of replacement head gaskets? Yours was a 0.3mm ~0.012" which by the cast in machining indicator limit wasn't approached.

Where do you get such melodic music from? btw BMW i8 is my dream car. I am currently driving a 1999 Steel Blue Metallic BMW 3 Series 328i Convertible, that I had to replace the engine and drive train, due to overheating. The last owner used tons of stop leak instead of properly fixing the leak and it instantly overheated after driving it for 4 years.

I did not look through everything and maybe you are aware....that water pump has a "rubber" or composite impeller. They can and will break off eventually and stop circulation plus clog up the coolant lines. Just saying. American Motor Corporation put these impellers in their 6 cylinder cars and while the car would idle forever without getting hot, just take it around the block and watch the geyser! BTW, they went out of business just after doing this stupid crap.

never ever EVER have something you can fix your own self done at a dealership. shop rate is over a hundred dollars an hour!! so think about it, if it would take you four hours to fix something, thats like, six hundred dollars in labor!! dont take anything you can handle yourself to a shop!!

Regelos 22 օր առաջ
the reason dealers especially prefer to swap engines then replace the gasket is because on average its cheaper. between the fact the engine is technically cheaper for them, combine with the time it took/takes to just pull the engine to replace the gasket, add in any other "hidden issues" or like this happened where 1 little thing stops you
PrinzessinRamode 23 օր առաջ
All that for a head gasket? The fact that it was continuously overheating related to a blown head gasket. It shouldn't have taken that long to figure it out. LOL I had a Ford, it was literally the same problem.
