About Coolant Level Sensors

Part of the car's cooling system, the BMW coolant level sensor plays an important role in enabling the engine to function as efficiently as possible and to perform at its best. The main function of the cooling system is to keep the engine cool and stop it from overheating. The cooling system does its job by allowing liquid coolant to move through the engine. The liquid absorbs the heat from the engine which in turn cools the engine down. 

Coolant, a combination of water and anti-freeze, is kept in a container in the radiator, and is responsible for helping to make sure the engine doesn't overheat. The correct amount of coolant needs to be present, and the right amount of coolant flowing through the radiator at all times that the car is in motion. If the coolant levels are too low this can have fatal results for the cooling system and subsequently the engine. The BMW coolant level sensor functions to ensure that when the level of coolant drops below the correct level that the driver is alerted to this. Usually located in the coolant reservoir/recovery tank or directly in the radiator, the coolant level sensor measures the amount of coolant in the radiator. If there is not enough coolant, a switch is activated which sends a signal to illuminate the warning light on the dashboard.

Coolant level sensors can malfunction due to faulty electrical connections and dirt can cause the sensor to get stuck. If the warning light is illuminated but the levels of coolant are correct it is likely to be a faulty sensor.  There are many problems that can arise with your car's cooling system so it is advisable to consult with your mechanic to establish the exact cause of the fault. Specifically designed for the make and model of your vehicle, the BMW coolant level sensor is the ideal choice when you need to replace this part.

BMW trivia

  • It might not be the accessory that everyone needs, but for BMW drivers in South Africa who were worried about carjackers, the 'Blaster' was a flamethrower that shot huge flames from either side of the car. Not currently available in the UK…
  • Everyone knows what the BMW logo looks like, but do you know what it represents? Most people think it's inspired by propellers (because of BMW's aviation history), but it's really just the same colour scheme as the Bavarian flag and was designed to showcase Bavaria.
  • The BMW 3.0CSL was sold in the 70s and had the unusual addition of a spoiler that was kept in the boot. The owner could install it if they wanted to, but BMW couldn't sell the car with the spoiler attached because of road laws!
  • The BMW company was founded way back in 1916 and originally manufactured engines for planes. High demand for plane engines during WWI was good news for BMW, but they carried on making plane engines right up until 1945.
  • The main headquarters for BMW in Munich is designed and shaped to look like car parts. There was a whole new 'four-cylinder' building added on in 1973, and there's definitely the look of an engine about the architecture.
