Add some additional reliability and engine bay styling with the Mishimoto BMW E36 Aluminum Coolant Expansion Tank. Stock coolant expansion tanks are prone to failure after years of constant temperature variations. The Mishimoto tank is constructed from durable, TIG-welded aluminum for optimal durability and longevity. The engineers at Mishimoto have designed a CNC-machined dipstick which doubles as a bleeder and allows for proper cold coolant levels. It features a polished finish that will look great in your engine bay. This expansion tank is a direct fit for the stock and Mishimoto BMW E36 Performance Fan Shroud Kit! As with all our products, this expansion tank includes the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:
Can I add fluid to the reservoir without needing to bleed the system? Also, can I check the fluid without needed to bleed the system?
BY:DeAndre Scott | Aug 30, 2016
A:

DeAndre,

Thanks for the message.

After initial installation, Mishimoto does recommend cooling bleeding system. However, you will not need to bleed the system each the cooling level is checked as that does not introduce air into the system.

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for the message!

To answer your question, yes, model number MMRT-E36-92E, the 1992-1999 BMW E36 Aluminum Coolant Expansion Tank will reuse the OEM coolant level sensor. This is shown at around the 2:15 minute point in the installation video I have linked below.
