Coolant Leak From Radiator on BMW 528i

It is not uncommon for the radiator to develop a coolant leak. A leaking radiator will require replacement. When a leaking radiator is replaced the entire cooling system should be inspected and if any additional leaks are found they should be repaired also.

Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.

The car developed a coolant leak and had to be added monthly. All of a sudden, the coolant leaks out in less than 8 hours after being filled. Should be a recall.

Four months ago, the "Low Coolant" warning light went on. I topped it off, and then 3 months later same thing. I took my car to the dealership, and the leak was coming from the radiator, and it will be replaced. Thanks goodness I had bought the extended warranty.
