N54 Coolant flange

Recommended Posts

Just a shot in the dark but wondering if anybody has a N54 coolant flange they don’t require?

Preferably an upgraded billet but I will buy either to get back on the road! 
 

Does any company within NZ do a billet coolant flange to save me shipping from overseas? 
Thanks in advance!

I managed to source the part I needed (above) and now have the car back on the road.

So the story is I have just replaced the Oil filter housing gasket & oil cooler gasket and replaced with all new bolts and o rings to the oil lines. I have also gave the car an oil & filter change, as well as a coolant top up as I lost quite a bit when the flange dissolved in my hands.

First drive before the car even got up to temp the engine went into limp mode and reduced power. Luckily I managed to limp the car home without issue. Turned off let it cool down.

Second  drive (engine light gone) and things seem okay  when up to temp except when cruising the car seems to surge forward, then stop then surge, then stop and will just keep doing that. I have been back in the engine bay and checked everything I can think of is tightened up.

 

Any suggestion of when this could be?

Did you bleed the coolant system?

 

What code is it throwing?

Yes, I bled the coolant (twice just to be sure)

I don't know what code as I don't have a code reader/scan tool.

I have checked using the BC check and nothing showing there.

Without a code will be pissing in the wind, grabbing an OBD2/usb cable and ista+ for $30 or a bluetooth thing like bimmergeeks protools will make it much easier and faster.

Yeah, I kinda figured that ?

I do have a K+DCAN cable and a few BMW programs that I have downloaded (INPA, NCS Dummy, Tool32, WinKFP, NCS Expert) but I don't have a clue how to read the fault codes.

ISTA+ is the bad boy you want, have you got that installed?
