    Default bleeding coolant sytem

    I just replaced my water pump and fan clutch on my '95 525i with the m50 engine.
    I am haveing problems bleeding my coolant sytem.
    I followed all the procedures discribed in my bentley book but my coolant level indicater on the dash keeps displaying coolant level... owner's manual..
    can anyone give me some input?

    if it's not overheating the level sender may be stuck, have a bad connection at the plug or has died. if you are having cooling problems and can't get it to burp drill a 1/16-1/8" hole in the thermostat in the arrow and put it at the 12:00 o clock position, this will break the air pocket at the thermostat and let it warm up
    all america wants is cold beer warm cat and a place to take a poop with a door on it
