The average cost of a BMW expansion tank cap is between $3.49 and $194.99.
The BMW expansion tank cap is one of the most ignored components of the cooling system on BMWs. The expansion tank cap serves two vital purposes. To begin, the cap maintains the proper pressure on the coolant to boost the system's efficiency. Second, by maintaining pressure on the coolant and cooling system, the cap prevents the coolant from boiling or expanding excessively. This cap is intended to resist 1.4 bar (20 PSI) of pressure before wearing out.
Caps are meant to guarantee that the cooling system's prescribed pressure is maintained at all times throughout operation by allowing air to escape in the event of overpressure. As a result, they should be regarded as the cooling system's "safety valve." A broken cap cannot adequately seal off the system or maintain it properly pressured, compromising the cooling system's proper operation. A faulty cap might cause even a new hose to fail.
The following symptoms can indicate a defective expansion tank cap:
- A radiator tube (either heating or main) bursts
- The nozzles explode
- The reservoir bursts
- The stove does not heat the air even when the engine is overheated. This frequently occurs when airing arises in the circuit - no pressure is formed in the system, from which the antifreeze boils
- When you start your BMW, you may notice an unpleasant odor of burning oil coming from the air vents or white smoke coming from under the hood. This can occur if antifreeze leaks over a hot front pipe
- Coolant traces develop on the pipe clamps
