While on the freeway, my 2001 X5 (165,000m) car developed a coolant leak, overheated, and was towed to the dealership. I was told there is white melted gunk in the radiator, so the radiator needs to be replaced. And I was told that we won't know if the engine damage is catastrophic until after I have spent the $$ replacing the radiator. Should I repair the radiator and hope for the best, or is it likely that my engine has catastrophic damage?
