Today on the way home....

My temp went to 105 then 108 then 110 within 2 minutes since I had to pull off the highway to shutdown.

Guess who blew up the LH radiator tank?

This guy!!

I have found a new tanks, gasket and tab strip and hope to have my core rodded and back on the road in a couple of days.

PS. Yes I know she's a little dirty down there but some of that is from me living in a shit-hole dustbowl......

Pretty sure in Saudi Arabia they only let you wash your car with saltwater or sand

Dang… EOD.. Now that I come to think of it, we can’t even chat about tanks on the next thread over, without the Witch throwing a FiT!

Better stop making jokes about that Ole’Witch. She scares me. *

I am afraid to even read a thread title now since the Witch apparently sees and hears all.....

PS. I swear I clean the engine bay!!
(Just not every wash)

how do you even find replacement plastic tanks available?
in all my years of working on stuff, I cant say I have ever seen them available for anything, let alone a BMW
