SOURCE: I have a coolant leak on my 2000 BMW 528i and now it overheating.

Pressure test cooling system to determine origin of leak. Radiator and coolant reservoirs are common problems. Vehicle is very difficult to purge air from cooling system and may take multiple times of idling until thermostat opens. Sometimes help to rev engine to about 2500 rpm 5-8 times to help build heat and move coolant through system. Must have heater on while performing this task.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 BMW 528i, and the ignition is messed

A ignition is in two parts, where you put the key to turn it and a second part that is the ignition itself. Between the two parts there is a small flat pin or bar. This is where your problem is, the pin/bar is broken. You will have to replace the ignition to solve the problem.

SOURCE: 100000 mile service checks/replacement parts on a 2000 BMW 528i

If your talking about what would a dealership change, it generally consists of a tune up, including spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, oil change, pcv valve, and fuel filter. Thats also usually when they want to replace the timing belts. There may be one or two other things specific to BMW, but generally thats what you can expect.

Cannot remove key from ignition


Hope this helps:
Your vehicle is equipped with an inter- lock. Therefore, the ignition key cannot be turned to position 0 and removed until the selector lever is in position "P" (Interlock).

There may be a tumbler pin stuck up that will not move to let the key in. Get some powdered graphite and puff it in the key hole then try inserting the key again take care with the powder as it will leave a black smudge that you can wipe away with a damp rag

My 2000 528i will not crank intermittenly


Possible faulty ignition switch. common problem on ALL bmw's.

You need to check you are getting power at the crank wire when you try to crank the engine. Also check that the crank signal (12v) is also getting to the starter (could be dodgy wire between ignition and starter).

1 more thing you had left

is check your sparkplug & ignition system
is it ok or not ,proper wired if not than clean up that connectors & than do again with checking your battery with another same model if started than its 100% fault about your ignition sysytem coil ,

go to your service center they can solve this prob easily after all,
i hope so you dont have to go to center you ca do it yourself,as i had,
