My BMW 525i is overheating; help!

My 2001 BMW 525i is overheating slightly lately (needle goes to 3/4). Especially when I go down steep slants. Then moves back again after a few minutes. The fan has been replaced, two years ago. Any ideas?

Thanks

Why isn't my Civic idling properly?

My 2000 Honda Civic revs are going up and down between 1,000- and 2,000rpm while stopped. I was away for three months and the car was not used. Any idea what the problem is?

Thanks, Mark

Should an Auris use oil between services?

I have a 2010 Toyota Auris. It used two litres of oil between services, Toyota rebuilt the engine and it's still using oil. Is this normal?

Why won't my Focus start after an engine change?

I currently own a Ford Focus C-Max - a 2005 model with a TDCi engine. Unfortunately I destroyed the engine when I drove i to water. I got a second hand one from a 2010 C-Max and took it to my mechanic to fit. The mechanic has swapped the new engine into it, but it won't start. He told me he has swapped everything possible from the old engine but it's doing nothing. Any advice would be gratefully received.
