BMW E36 M3 Radiators & Cooling System Overhaul Kits

BMW E36 M3 Radiators & Cooling System Overhaul Kits We sell only OEM Behr, Original BMW, or approved aftermarket upgrade radiators for your BMW. It seems BMW took some shortcuts when it came to radiator design and used too many weak materials like plastic for critical connections. The core and sizing of the radiators are generally sufficient for the intended application but problems can occur at hose connections, upper or lower necks, and plastic end tanks. The radiators we sell are all OEM designs to keep the quality high. In some cases the OEM has made design improvements to prevent past issues. There are a number of non-OEM replacement radiators that use even cheaper materials and poor workmanship which only leads to more problems. On some models we offer OEM alternatives that perform as upgrades to the original designs and we also offer full race all-aluminum radiator upgrades that solve all of the issues with plastic radiators.

For accurate results, specify your model below.
Radiator Fan Switch - 91/99 degree - E30 E36 E34 E32 E31 Z3 Engine radiator double temperature fan switch, 91/99 degree celsius. This switch is designed to activate the auxiliary fan at the specified temperatures. A faulty switch can lead to the auxiliary fan not activating, causing over heating.

Complete Cooling System Overhaul Package - 1992-1999 E36 325i/328i/M3 This is a compete cooling system overhaul kit, which includes all of the common E36 cooling system parts bundled into a complete package. The basic overhaul includes: water pump, radiator, radiator hoses, and thermostat. We bundled these together with a package discount for your convenience and savings. Additional items are also available to better cover your cooling system repair. Contact us if you need any other E36 cooling system parts.

The original E36's primary cooling components were prone to failure within 60k miles (or less in many cases). With better materials over the years we've seen that interval increase and you can now count on your water pump and radiator lasting at least 100,000 miles. That doesn't mean you can set aside preventaive maintenance. A failure in the cooling system can lead to overheating and catastrophic engine failure. Don't gamble your engine! By replacing these core items preventatively, such as the radiator & waterpump, you are defusing what could be a ticking cooling system time bomb. And if you've had a failure of one of these parts, now is the time to refresh your cooling system.

Top Turner Tip!
The very earliest E36s had infamous cooling system failures. But those are a thing of the past! We've got the best combination of parts to ensure a bulletproof E36 cooling system and it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. Our basic cooling package (OEM radiator and OE BMW water pump with composite impeller) is much better quality than what was available 20 years ago. And we can upgrade the system with full aluminum radiators, silicone hoses, and a stronger water pump. There are no more excuses for a weak E36 cooling system.

Basic Kit Contents:
17111469179, radiator (OEM Behr)
11517527799, water pump (OE BMW)
11537511580, 88°C thermostat (OEM Behr/Hella)
11531708499, upper radiator hose (OEM Rein/CRP)
11531726344, lower radiator hose (OEM Rein/CRP)
17111742231, expansion tank cap (OEM Behr/Hella)

Cooling Kit Options:
E36 Water Pump Options
(click to expand)
OE BMW with composite impeller. The original BMW water pumps had plastic impellers which degraded and failed. The latest design uses composites that are much better and will not corrode. Compared to a metal impeller, the composite is lighter so it's more efficient and it will not wear out the bearings. We don't even offer the metal impeller pumps with this kit because the BMW composite one is so much better.
Stewart high performance. The ultimate in M50 water pumps! It features a stainless steel impeller, heavy-duty bearings, a better o-ring seal, and flows 20% more than the stock pump. If indestructible is what you're looking for, this is the pump to go with. It also comes with a lifetime warranty for piece of mind.
E36 Radiators
(click to expand)
The stock radiator and fan combination has no downside in capacity. But where it lacks is in durability. The plastic tanks and hose necks are prone to cracking and then leaking. If you notice ANY greenish-white staining on the plastic then it's a sure sign of a crack. To avoid the plastic failures altogether, move up to a full aluminum radiator.

The MZ3 radiator has a thicker core and more capacity. Any time you can store the coolant away from the engine the better it will be. It will have less heat soak and lower overall temperatures.
The budget aluminum radiator is the same size as stock but obviously doesn't have the plastic.
The Fluidyne was designed with input from our own techs and race team. It's our go-to radiator for racing and track use.
E36 Expansion Tank
(click to expand)
The original expansion tank is prone to cracks and leakage. Again - it's made from a weak plastic. The material has improved over the years but the only option remains an OEM plastic tank. It's a good idea to replace it if you're doing a whole overhaul. Don't re-use the original tank if you're going to the trouble of replacing everything else!
E36 Thermostat Housing
(click to expand)
The original BMW plastic thermostat housing is brittle and does not seal well. We only sell it under protest. Instead we've been selling this aluminum housing for the last 20+ years. The aluminum does not have the same shortcomings as the plastic one. We made this item an option in case you already have the aluminum housing.

Use the options below to build your cooling package.

This cooling system overhaul kit fits the following BMWs:
1992-1999 E36 BMW 323is 323ic 325i 325is 325ic 328i 328is 328ic M3

E36 323/325/328/M3 X-Line Performance Aluminum Radiator

Mishimoto X-Line E36 Aluminum Radiator features -

  • 90% more capacity with thicker core
  • 30 degree reduction in coolant temp
  • All aluminum construction
  • Hanger tabs for Euro oil cooler included
  • More durable and longer lasting than plastic components
  • Excellent fit and finish
  • Unbeatable lifetime warranty and accident-forgiveness

Mishimoto radiators address all of the defects of the stock E36 radiator in a well-engineered and price-competitive direct replacement unit. The Mishimoto X-Line radiator is an all aluminum design that replaces the factory plastic and aluminum stock radiator. The stock plastic end tanks are notorious for cracking and leaks whereas the Mishimoto has aluminum end tanks that will never fail. The X-Line uses a thicker core than stock for 91% more coolant capacity but still fits in the original location with no modifications. More coolant volume means the fluid is not heat soaked for as long (less super heated fluid circulating through the engine). For a direct replacement performance radiator, the Mishimoto is hard to beat!

Mishimoto was established in 2003 as a supplier of cooling components for drift and rally cars. Their radiators and intercoolers soon found a strong following in the hyper competitive drift scene where high horsepower and prolonged high revs dictate the need for durable and robust cooling solutions. The catchy Mishimoto name is a combination of the name of the founder's family pet - Mishi - and "moto". All products are designed and tested in the USA using state-of-the-art CAD tools and prototyping and with continuous evolution of product design. Mishimoto is so dedicated to quality that they offer a limited lifetime warranty and accident forgiveness.

E36 Aluminum Radiator Upgrade with Oil Cooler Tabs The cooling system may be the E36's biggest letdown. Many plastic components in the system were not manufactured for longevity, especially when used in racing/track environments. Two areas of the stock radiator that are prone to failure are the plastic end-tanks and the plastic necks for the upper and lower hoses. The plastic will become brittle and crack. The solution is to use more durable materials such as aluminum or composites. This all aluminum radiator sourced from Asia, is an economic alternative to the premium pieces from PWR and Fluidyne while still addressing the stock radiator's plastic shortcomings. We have tried this radiator in some of our E36 track cars and it fits just like the stock OEM with all of the accessories and shrouds fitting just like the original. It's slightly thicker but has the same surface area as the original radiator. There won't be any significant change in coolant volume and we don't expect it to lower coolant temps. But if you're installing the OEM plastic version over and over this may be the perfect alternative at a low cost. This is great for someone who was using the plastic radiator with an oil cooler but couldn't find a low cost aluminum version that would work with the oil cooler.

Note: this radiator does come with the tabs on the bottom for mounting the factory Euro oil cooler. Our Euro Oil Cooler Mouting Brackets are still required to finish the install.

E36 Fluidyne/Turner 44mm Aluminum Radiator Upgrade RE-DESIGNED AND RE-ENGINEERED!!

We have collaborated with FLUIDYNE on improving their already excellent aluminum radiator for the E36. The features that made FLUIDYNE a leader in the E36 radiator market continue but with some new elements requested by the Turner Motorsport R&D staff. We have made the radiator easier to fit with the stock fan shroud and hanger mounts. The shroud will be better secured to the radiator than before which saves time and hassle. Our goal was to make this as close to a "drop-in" replacement as possible. We also had new hangers installed on the bottom to accommodate the factory E36 Euro oil cooler and our oil cooler hangers. A zinc anode drain plug absorbs static electricity from the coolant which helps prolong the life of temp sensors. There has never been a better E36 radiator upgrade than this! For an E36 track or modded street car there should be no reason to ever go back to a stock plastic radiator or compromise on a cheap aluminum radiator. The latest FLUIDYNE is the best there is.

The stock radiator has an aluminum core but with plastic end-tanks and hose connections that become brittle and can leak or crack. You may not even realize your radiator neck is cracked until it's too late and you're stranded on the side of the freeway or unable to continue with your track day. An all-aluminum design does not suffer the defects of similar plastic construction. FLUIDYNE quality is what sets them apart from every other manufacturer. Their radiators feature a high-tech CAB-brazed core construction instead of epoxy (which can leak). All tanks and brackets are TIG welded by hand in the USA. If you plan on owning your BMW for many years to come, or are using it in a situation where failure is NOT an option such as track or racing, then this should be your only option instead of the failure-prone stock radiators.

This radiator fits the following BMWs:
1995-1999 E36 M3 including coupe, sedan & convertible
1992-1995 E36 325i & 325is sedan/coupe/convt

E36 PWR 42mm Aluminum Radiator Upgrade The 42mm PWR Euro E36 radiator fits the Euro E36 M3 models as well as US-spec E36 325, 328, and M3s. This radiator has a core that is 4mm larger than the stock Behr radiator. If you're looking for a radiator with more cooling capacity and a provision for the stock Euro oil cooler, this is the one. Everyone knows the E36 has an Achilles heal in the cooling system with flimsy radiator necks, plastic materials, unreliable water pumps, and not a lot of capacity for some applications. PWR has addressed some of these issues with a slightly thicker radiator, able to hold more fluid. Increasing the amount of fluid in the system leads to shorter saturation times (the length of time the cooling fluid is exposed to engine heat) which will give you more consistent engine temperatures, reducing wear and tear on other cooling components such as the water pump and thermostat. This is great as a durable replacement radiator for a street car or as an upgrade for a track car. For super-serious cooling capacity check out our PWR 55mm radiator, however, if you don't need the additional capacity we recommend the 42mm unit because of its lighter weight (both in the radiator itself and carrying less fluid).

Not only is this radiator larger, it's designed with the stresses of motorsports in mind. The cooling vanes use a unique oven-brazed bonding technology that will not fatigue and crack like epoxyed construction. We have been more impressed with the fitment and quality of PWR over any other brand currently on the market. Aircraft-grade aluminum is used for the tanks and frame, which are TIG-welded for superior strength. We like this radiator a lot for dual-purpose track/street cars because it does not intrude too much into the engine bay and it's a direct fit with the factory Euro oil cooler and factory mounting hanger (note: not TMS oil cooler hardware). The factory Euro oil cooler hanger will have to be used if you're using the factory oil cooler (we sell the hanger alone if you need it). That makes this radiator a plug-in upgrade for true Euro-spec cars. With or without an oil cooler, this radiator is a direct replacement for the stock E36 radiator, with all of the same hose locations and fittings as the original radiator. It mounts to the car with the original clips on the radiator support and the fan shroud/expansion tank bolts to the radiator (you will need to supply your own M6 and M8 hardware as spacing and installing the shroud can be done several different ways). Each radiator is pressure-tested during manufacturing.

PWR is a world-renowned radiator manufacturer, supplying all forms of motorsport from Formula One (2010 World Champion Sebastian Vettel) to WRC to NASCAR. Our TMS Race Team uses PWR for our cooling needs in the Rolex GT and Continental Sports Car series.

E36 Mishimoto Aluminum Coolant Reservoir Tank

If you have ever experienced a leaking plastic BMW expansion tank you will realize the value of this aluminum version straight away. Even if a failure has not happened to you, it's easy to tell this tank is much stronger and more durable than the plastic used in the stock design. Mishimoto has extended their cooling system expertise from aluminum radiators to expansion tank design. The original BMW plastic tanks suffer from leaks and failures with no warning. While being light weight and recyclable the design and construction of the stock tank is just not up for reliable long term use. Mishimoto has designed their tank with an integrated dipstick/bleeder and a 1.3bar cap that raises the boiling point of the system (the stock radiator cap is not compatible).

The Mishimoto expansion tank takes the place of the stock tank in the stock plastic radiator fan shroud or in the Mishimoto electric fan and shroud upgrade. It takes the stock coolant level sensor and the upper and lower hoses as well.

Lifetime warranty!

E36 PWR 55mm Aluminum Radiator Upgrade This PWR radiator for the E36 325, 328, and M3 is a super-large 55mm core with a larger tank capacity for bulletproof cooling. If you're looking for the most complete and unbeatable radiator solution for your E36, this is the best we have seen. Everyone knows the E36 has an Achilles heal in the cooling system with flimsy radiator necks, plastic materials, unreliable water pumps, and not a lot of capacity for some applications. PWR has addressed some of these issues with the ultimate radiator. The 55mm core is a full 13-17mm thicker than the stock radiator. With minor adjusting during installation, all of the factory shrouds and fans will fit. Having a greater capacity means less saturation time for the cooling fluid which leads to more consistent engine temperatures, reducing wear and tear on other cooling components such as the water pump and thermostat. It's also hugely beneficial when using forced induction where increased underhood temperatures will snowball through the rest of the engine compartment and eventually the cooling system. Don't let your radiator end your race!

Not only is this radiator larger, it's designed with the stresses of motorsports in mind. The cooling vanes use a unique oven brazed bonding technology that will not fatigue and crack like epoxyed construction. We have been more impressed with the fitment and quality of PWR over any other brand currently on the market. Aircraft-grade aluminum is used for the tanks and frame, which are TIG-welded for superior strength. The bottom of this radiator incorporates hangers which can be used to mount the stock Euro oil cooler or the TMS Oil Cooler Kit. We have used this on in-house and customer projects and it is a replacement for the stock E36 radiator, with all of the same hose locations and fittings as the original radiator. It mounts to the car with the original clips on the radiator support and the fan shroud/expansion tank bolts to the radiator (you will need to supply your own hardware as spacing and installing the shroud can be done several different ways). But because this is an extra large version of the stock radiator some manual adjusting and fitment care will be required. Professional installation is not required but may be necessary. Each radiator is pressure-tested during manufacturing. Because of the extra depth required between the radiator and engine, extra care will be needed when installed with forced induction kits, non-stock oil coolers, and lines.

The stock plastic end tanks are notorious for cracking and leaks whereas the Mishimoto has aluminum end tanks that will never fail. Mishimoto can also build 30% more coolant capacity into the a radiator that fits in the original location with no modifications. More coolant volume means the fluid is not heat soaked for as long (less super heated fluid circulating through the engine). For a direct replacement performance radiator, the Mishimoto is hard to beat!

Mishimoto was established in 2003 as a supplier of cooling components for drift and rally cars. Their radiators and intercoolers soon found a strong following in the hyper competitive drift scene where high horsepower and prolonged high revs dictate the need for durable and robust cooling solutions. The catchy Mishimoto name is a combination of the name of the founder's family pet - Mishi - and "moto". All products are designed and tested in the USA using state-of-the-art CAD tools and prototyping and with continuous evolution of product design. Mishimoto is so dedicated to quality that they offer a limited lifetime warranty and accident forgiveness.

    Coolant Expansion Tank - E36/E39/Z3 6 cylinder 1992-1998 This high quality BEHR brand expansion tank is used on M50, M52, S50 and S52 engines, and is a common failure item on all E36 3 series with 6 cylinder engines (325/328/323 and M3) 1992-1999, Z3 with 2.8 liter, MZ3 Roadster/Coupe (S52), and E39 528i from 1997-1998. BEHR was the original equipment supplier to BMW, so you know the BEHR made expansion tank will be the highest quality available. Be leary of competitors selling this part for less -- is it a BEHR? Probably not. We only carry the BEHR brand expansion tank as it is the only one we use in our own BMWs.

    If you are overhauling your coolant system, now is the time to consider preventative replacing this expansion tank. These are known to go bad, causing a leak which can leave you stranded. We have found that the expansion tanks should be replaced based on age as well as condition. Expansion tanks seem to have a lifespan of less than six years before they show signs of fatigue and wear. Pre-emptively replacing the expansion tank as part of an overall maintenance plan can prevent you from getting stranded from a sudden failure later on.

    Need a new coolant level sensor too? If your coolant level sender is bad, your on board computer will constantly display a "low coolant" message (unless your coolant is actually low...). If you're replacing your expansion tank, now is a great time to replace this failure prone sensor. If you want a new coolant level sensor, simply choose from the option below. Because there are different sensors for different year/model BMWs, please be as specific as possible when you give us your car info during checkout (model, year, production date). Thanks!
